In 1993, Marc Jacobs emerged into fame and notoriety with the debut of his “Grunge” collection for Perry Ellis, which was both denounced by critics and praised as a masterpiece. This month, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the collection, the designer is bringing back 26 of the looks as part of his Redux Grunge capsule.
“The ‘grunge’ collection epitomised 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,” said Jacobs in a statement.
The collection, which include strap dresses, floral crop tops, crochet cardigans and plaid button-downs, is modelled by Gigi Hadid and Ella Richards among others.
For this release, Jacobs is also teaming up with Dr Martens to reissue leather boots from the same year. The boots, which retail for US$220, come in four colours – black, shiny patent black, beige and light lavender – and feature the Doc’s trademark yellow-stitching, AirWair soles and a branded heel tab.
