Like the air of a distorted guitar, the grunge movement has perpetrated the atmosphere of the Fall 2019 menswear collections.
Taking cues from the original movement with a “who gives a f*ck” attitude, designers funked up a fusion of punk and metal sending models down the catwalk in torn oversized sweaters, mismatched stripes, distressed and frayed elements. Oversized streetwear graphics helped move the needle past the records recorded during the music scene of Seattle in the 1980s.
Marni, Vetements, Y-Project, Dsquared2 and JW Anderson for Loewe lead the movement with angst-ridden looks that exemplified the general feeling of the era which was all about disenchantment with society. The look is as fresh today as it was yesterday offering the designer customer the opportunity to dress as a complete individual who can’t be bothered by what is trendy, in The Impression’s first fashion trend of the season.
