I spent my late teenage years in the age of grunge. The clothing we wore could not have been any less sexy. Oversized, boyish, baggy, and well...grungy they were a far cry from the form-fitting outfits I see on 13 year old girls prancing around NYC today. 

Fashion trends are often recycled but they never really come back around exactly the same way; and in my opinion, that's usually a good thing. It's been 25 years since Marc Jacobs was unceremoniously fired from his post at Perry Ellis so to commemorate the event, he's reissued 26 of the most iconic looks from his 1993 Collection. As a Generation X'er who worshipped Nirvana, it feels a bit inauthentic to see Gigi Hadid modeling the "New Grunge" so it remains to be seen if this is simply Marc celebrating Marc or if Millennials will be able to reinvent the trend and make it their own.
