Terrace style has been represented on the big screen many times – albeit not usually in the best light – but casuals kit and top-quality filmmaking came together in the 1995 French film La Haine
. British football fan culture had spread further afield, to the banlieue of Paris, where Vincent Cassel and Saïd Taghmaoui’s fictional counterparts mooched about in zipped-up track tops and crisp white tennis shoes. Around the same time, the rise of Britpop
saw key features of the casual look like Harrington jackets
and shellsuits revived and adapted. The latter, in particular, evolved from training pitch cover-up to wearable, everyday co-ord, despite the introduction of wacky designs and garish colour clashes.
