Shop the interactive Marc Jacobs Redux Grunge collection inspired by the new wave of music, fashion photography, and the personal style of his friends.
Marc Jacobs boldly put Grunge on the runway during his time at Perry Ellis. 25 years later, we bring you Redux Grunge – 26 looks from that original, iconic collection.
It was 1992, a time when fashion was still catering squarely to the practicality of working women and the upper echelons of society, when Jacobs turned his eye to the grunge scene bubbling in the Pacific Northwest, sending out Carla Bruni in Dr. Martens boots, Tyra Banks in Birkenstocks, Shalom Harlow in Converse All Stars, and Kate Moss and Kristen McMenamy in tees with Robert Crumb graphics.
The look was inspired by the authenticity of the music world and the way his model friends were already dressing. It was an early bellwether of fashion and music coming together, of youth culture impacting high fashion, and of fashion becoming a talking point for pop culture. Today he tells Vogue, “The Grunge collection epitomized the first time in my professional career I was unwavering in my determination to see my vision come to life on the runway, without creative compromise.”
