    Chaos Academia: Preppy Styles Get an Alternative Makeover

    From Miu Miu and Thom Browne to Celine and Chopova Lowena, designers taking collegiate-inspired staples to anarchic new highs.


    Inspired by the resurgence of normcore minimalism and the chaotic messiness of early-’00s indie sleaze, preppy, academic-inspired clothing is back at the forefront of fashion. While this style is happening at the same time as the TikTok virality of #quietluxury and #oldmoney, today’s take on prep is done with a wink. It’s not cosplaying as someone with a yacht, but rather modernizing and customizing styles associated with elite academia and cerebral circles, embodying both book-smart and street-smart sensibilities.
