They say that nostalgia is on a 20-year cycle, so '60s nostalgia peaked in the '80s, '90s trends came back in the 2010s, and so on. The Curse of Von Dutch is, in many ways, a look at American culture in the 2000s. The story is an example of how street fashion got appropriated by celebrity culture, especially by icons who symbolized a certain type of wealth, like Paris Hilton and Tommy Lee Jones, and sneakily becomes an entertaining look at class and race in America. The series may feel like a time capsule, but the content is relevent in ways no one could've guessed 20 years ago.
