My teen years were so heavily influenced by grunge for a while that I felt Dr Martins were synonyms for footwear, ripped fishnet stockings were normal and tartan shirts , well , I kinda lived in them – day or night. This season Saint Laurent made a return to grunge, but the fabrics Heidi Slimane used are much more luxurious and tactile than polyester or nylon , even though they look similar. While I am all for celebrating grunge, I feel too old for ripped stockings and bad materials, so I am embracing the new luxe grunge. It truly can be a tough, cool but utterly sexy and polished look if done right.
This picture is featuring an evening wear version of the trend that is all crock print glamour, spike metal heels, dark lipstick and gleaming silver jewellery ( dress Toni Maticevski, heels Casadei, clutch Proenza Schouler from Land’s End, jewellery by Tiffany & Co , lipstick by Nars )
Take a spin on the old rock n’ roll classic with classic army tones mixed with motorcycle inspired Camilla & Marc leggings and a sheer tartan Zambesi shirt. ( vintage Versace jacket, Balmain boots, Agent Provocateur leather bra and Pushmataha for Manning Cartell jewellery..
