Lessons in...Grunge

Back in 1992, Marc Jacobs caused quite the stir while showing his collection for Perry Ellis. With plaids, leathers and punk edge, the collection did get him fired from Perry Ellis and led him on his journey to his two namesake labels and one of the most watched shows, Louis Vuitton. 
Not since '92 has a fashion show caused the same kind of controversy in the same looks as Saint Laurent '13. Nothing but changes have occurred since Heidi Slimane took over the brand. Anywhere from changing the name of the label to actually moving the design studio to California, he has shaken up the brand and perhaps the customers. 
With the same plaid type shirts mixing with sheer stockings and short dresses, Heidi is once again reinventing the term 'grunge' and no doubt about it, will probably lead to even bigger things for the designer.
