Marc Jacobs Gives His Iconic ‘Grunge’ Collection Another Go

COVID-19 recovery is on the horizon but the pandemic's impact on sustainability, retail, product development and consumer buying patterns means the denim industry must evolve. Join Rivet on April 20th at 11 am ET for the COVID, One Year Later roundtable.

Grunge seems to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Marc Jacobs on Wednesday announced the launch of “Redux Grunge Collection 1993/2018 Marc Jacobs,” a capsule collection celebrating the designer’s iconic Spring ’93 runway collection for Perry Ellis.

The original polarizing collection, which is often described as one that changed the direction of womenswear and runway fashion, ultimately led to Jacobs’ dismissal from the sportswear label in 1993.

The “Grunge” collection encapsulates the style of disengaged, alt-rock ’90s youth with flannel shirts, skate jeans, vintage prints and beanie hats—a look that resonates with fashion’s current mood for nostalgic ’90s style.

“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,” Jacobs said in a statement.

The re-issued collection includes 26 looks, ranging from ready-to-wear, jewelry, footwear and accessories—all made in the original prints, fabrics and embroideries. Highlights include a series of fruit-printed chiffon dresses, shrunken cardigans and striped suits, black denim with contrast stitching and simple slip dresses.

For the launch, Marc Jacobs teamed with photographer Jeurgen Teller for a campaign starring “It” models Gigi Hadid and Dree Hemingway.

The collection can be found starting Nov. 15 at marcjacobs.com, select department stores and Marc Jacobs boutiques worldwide. It is also currently available for pre-order online.
