Whether you call it nostalgia or you call it a return to what was always cool, there’s no denying that many of the biggest style trends of 2022 revolve around turning back the clock to the ‘90s, Y2K and early 2000s (see: the “Pammy Updo” and shield sunglasses). But what about the trends that Millennial or Gen Z kids couldn’t get enough of back in the day — back when we were kids?
Enter: Nelvana and Juniper Creates’ Max & Ruby Remix Collection — an updated way to wear some of the nostalgic charm of the much-loved Max & Ruby series. From comfy crewnecks to graphic T-shirts to the perfect cozy blanket hoodie, the collection features comfy casual pieces in an array of bright designs that harken back to the classic Canadian animated series.
Why now? Aside from the popularity of Max & Ruby on TikTok (the bunnies’ official page has over 9.4 million likes), this year also happens to mark the 20-year anniversary of when the show first aired in May of 2002.
If you’re ready to wear your childhood fandom on your sleeve, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite pieces from this cartoon-cool collection.
