From Nokia to Crocs, Has The World Fallen Back into 2000?


In a strik­ing 2000 rem­i­nis­cence, Nokia re­launched its iconic 3310 model in a rather re­vamped look that beau­ti­fully em­bod­ies the essence of its pre­de­ces­sor while also in­tro­duc­ing a twist of vi­brancy and moder­nity in line with our cur­rent times. Dubbed Nokia 3310 just like its an­ces­tor, the com­pany’s nos­tal­gic cre­ation op­er­ates un­der Nokia’s Se­ries 30+ soft­ware with a 2-megapixel cam­era and mi­crosd slot among other specs and has stirred quite some hype on so­cial me­dia af­ter it was an­nounced. Slicker, lighter and more col­or­ful, the 3310 is avail­able in yel­low, red, dark blue and matte grey. Now if that’s not enough 00s nos­tal­gia for you, it looks like an­other cher­ished blast from the past is also get­ting a mod­ern makeover: Crocs. Yes, you read that right, Crocs. The ugli­est shoes of all time made a re­mark­ably em­bel­lished ap­pear­ance on the 2017 run­way to com­ple­ment the Spring-sum­mer cre­ations of Bri­tish de­signer Christo­pher Kane, lead­ing so­cial me­dia users and fash­ion en­thu­si­ast alike into a sig­nif­i­cant melt­down. All in all, it looks like 2017 is head­ing to­wards a se­ri­ous 2000 throw­back on mul­ti­ple lev­els.
