There were hints of the popular menswear trend in the form of masculine blazers, but they made plenty of sense when paired with babydoll dresses and plaid blouses. He hits all of the grunge highlights – grandpa cardigans, black tights, black buckle-covered boots – but he doesn’t let them hijack what is essentially a glamorous, irreverent collection. There are plenty of sparkly dresses, gorgeous fur coats and sexy leather looks in the mix as well. The real 90s grunge girl would find her thrift store pairings in a dumpster behind a burned out apartment complex. The Saint Laurent girl carefully considers her silhouette before slipping on a slim-shouldered leopard coat or flower-scattered frock.
