Grunge is... being 19 and waking up in the morning, grabbing your boyfriend's soft, worn plaid shirt, and wearing it with an anonymous 1940s sheer floral chiffon dress you picked up in some five and dime vintage rummage bin and maybe pulling on your own long sleeve striped tee to layer if it is chilly.
Grunge is... Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis 1992. Grunge is infamous and inflammatory. Grunge is expensive and beautifully made. Grunge gets you fired from designing for the house of Perry Ellis.
Grunge is... resurrected by Dries van Noten for Spring 2013. I personally think every wardrobe should include a little Dries each season. It is always so wearable, so well made, so somehow personal. The Dries girl/woman is smart, sexy and creative. And the Dries girl/woman is a little grunge this coming Spring 2013.
Girl meet Woman meet Dries meet Grunge... happiness ensues...
coming Spring 2013
