Considering everything new that have been coming out nowadays, millennials obsession with vintage may seem odd. To explain this weird and unexplained taste, with or without calling it hipster, it may be needed to analyze what are leading us to look for the comfort of the good old things, that weren’t even a part of their life.
Millennials have been living in the fastest and though more technology changes than every other generation have ever lived though, so there is a comfort simple thing, especially considering most millennials childhoods revolved around simple things and technology just exploded one day out of nowhere and now we live in its world.
Live To Experience
We millennials are obsessed with experiencing everything. We have all lived through our parent’s stories of the past and how much fun they use to have with things that are now known as vintage, and at some time, we all want to experience this “good old days” fun and we end up feeling nostalgic with memories we ourselves may have never had.
Vintage Is New To Us
The vintage we love so much now is most of the times new to us, and as the good millennials living in a capitalist world we are our desire to own things have may not always make sense to others, but have a nostalgic feel to it is real.
Our Obsession with Our Own Childhood
So far I have talked about vintage things our generation didn’t really have as it was already considered old in our childhood, but we are also obsessed with our own childhood things.
Today, our generation feels just like our grandparents felt about our parents’ generation, even known, unlike them, most of us don’t have kids of our own yet. Because we see a decadence on the news, products (other than technology), and the media itself, by the memory of how much better quality content had during our childhood; from better TV shows to the durability of technology and manufactured products.
