Marc Jacobs is recreating the 1992 collection for Perry Ellis that got him fired.
It has been 26 years since the show that saw Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss strut the runway wearing knitted beanies, slip dresses and combat boots. After the glamorous Eighties, this new grunge theme was hard for the fashion crowd to swallow and it was the end of the road for Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis.
Now however, with the rise of streetwear and generation Z embracing the mix of era’s, the remake of 26 looks could prove to be a huge hit. Him and his team searched the archives to replicate each piece exactly and named the line ‘Redux’.
Launching online November 15 and then in stores November 19, the look book was shot by Juergen Teller and features Lily McMenamy wearing the exact look her mum, Kristen McMenamy wore when she closed the original Grunge collection as the groom to Kate Moss’ bride.
Expect loose outwear, floral slip dresses, check shirt, Beetlejuice striped trousers and of course the knitted beanie hats. Smells like teen spirit.
