Marc Jacobs Brings Back his 90’s Perry Ellis Grunge Collection

Marc Jacobs Brings Back his 90’s Perry Ellis Grunge Collection Fashion’s infatuation with ’90s nostalgia isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The latest revival comes in the form of Marc Jacobs’ famous 1993 collection for Perry Ellis that shaped the decade’s grunge look—and ultimately led to him being fired from the brand.

The look, as Jacobs said at the time, was inspired by the authenticity of the music world and the way his model friends were already dressing. It was an early bellwether of fashion and music coming together, of youth culture impacting high fashion, and of fashion becoming a talking point for pop culture.

25 years later, Jacobs and his team have meticulously remade 26 looks from that infamous outing. They returned to the mills that produced the original prints and scoured eBay for the now-vintage pieces. The designer had the somewhat crazy idea of reissuing his favourite collection, not to boast or be lazy, he says—he just wanted to mix things up. The fashion system wasn’t working. He felt boxed in by its biannual runway-show structure. Jacobs thought it might be time to try something different, again.
