We’ve seen the reemergence of 90s era grunge for the past couple of seasons. And personally, I am thrilled. Yes, I was around for it the 1st time, but my then pre-teen body just looked confused in the trend. I hoping my now post-natal body doesn’t have the same problem! My current grunge meets glamour favorite is the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 Collection.
Fishnets, short hemlines, flannel and sparkle encapsulate what much of this collection offers. Frankly there was an air of having seen it before- not just in the 90s, but on many of today’s cool girls. However there were special moments as well. My favorites are the slashed leather pants, the peek-a-boo moments on the black babydoll dress and the cropped black and gold jacket.
For me, what makes those moments special are their elevated appeal. These aren’t Courtney Love dirty-grunge, but Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent grunge. And I have to believe that this somewhat recycled look speaks to today’s audience just as well as it did in previous times.
What do you think of the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 Collection? Does the grunge speak to you? Or does it all leave you feeling a tad too dirty?
