Checkmate coats, jackets, shirts or pants are everywhere you look this season, from grunge-tastic, tartans, to gingham checks – I absolutely love them! Going along with the nineties revival and in particular grunge style, I am definitely feeling a checked shirt and checked jacket could be on the fashion cards. I’m thinking bold check style, most likely an oversized option, layered over skinnies, with just a hint of Nirvana.
California grunge, was the inspiration for Hedi Slimane’s second women’s collection fall 2013 for Saint Laurent, the biggest shock for all fashion journalists! Creative director Hedi Slimane sent a valentine to the women of ‘90s indie rock, most especially Courtney Love – sparkly dresses, combat boots, plaid flannels, moody florals, dark eye make-up, oversized sweaters, and undone hair were all present on the runway, making Saint Laurent the grunge princess’ new favorite go-to brand. This grunge trend is not limited to the Saint Laurent catwalk; we’re seeing heavy nods to the nineties everywhere.
