Trend Recap: Heavy Metal & ‘90s Grunge
We are loving one of the new season’s key details as a sharper alternative to lady-like looks. Many designers are looking to toughen things up with metal hardware–multiple studs, zippers and buckle details have never looked so chic.
As a juxtaposition to the grown up ’70s references we have seen in many collections, the younger designers in New York are referencing a harder edged ’90s vibe—heavily influenced by the grunge movement—for the ultimate in cool girl style. Multi-layered volumes, mismatched plaid and the season’s must-have parka are all key to the look.
