Trend Report SS2013: Modern Grunge
Grunge is back in fashion and it has a slightly new identity. The modern way we express grunge is slightly more feminine, a little more colorful and perhaps therefore a bit more accessible too. Dries van Noten brought back the tartan print back to life and made it sexier by using it on sheer fabrics. Philip Lim gave his models a tartan print to go too as he tied it around their waists in a nineties kind of way. But there’s more to grunge than this Scottish check. Denim, dark leather, piercings and beanies are revived as well, mixed together in a lighter, more playful way then ever before. And though we still see a lot of black leather within this trend Saint Laurent and Lim proof even floral prints can portray grunge. And let’s not forget the grunge-inspired beauty; dark lips & eyes, super straight or funky frizzy hair. See our gallery for all spring/summer grunge inspiration and take a sneak peek at some of the fall/winter collections for even more on this theme.
