Marc Jacobs today (October 7, 2018) announced plans to resurrect the looks featured on his famed fall 1992 runway for Perry Ellis. Dubbed “Redux,” the 2018 version of the collection includes 26 replicated looks, plus shoes jewelry, tote bags and accessories that includes a Dr. Martens collaborative boot and a t-shirt featuring a Robert Crumb illustration.
The collection became known as the grunge collection for the inspiration it took from the punk scene. While Jacobs has many legendary collections under his belt, the grunge collection was his most notorious because the uproar over the looks led to him being fired by the label. Writing on the collection, fashion critic Cathy Horyn famously wrote, “Grunge is anathema to fashion.”
“The grunge collection epitomized the first time in my professional career I was unwavering in my determination to see my vision come to life on the runway, without creative compromise,” Jacobs said in a statement on the collection.
As shot by Juergen Teller, models tapped for the campaign include Gigi Hadid, a still pregnant Slick Woods, Coco Gordon Mooore (daughter of Kim Gordon whose music in part inspired the collection), Lily McMenamy (whose mom walked in the original show) and Dree Hemingway among others.
And while the effort was done independently of Perry Ellis, the brand did share historical assets with Jacobs and plans to support the effort on social media.
Prices for the Redux offerings range from $45 for hair accessories up to $1,200 for a suede overcoat. The Redux collection is available to pre-order on marcjacobs.com starting on November 7, 2018. It will launch online on November 15th and will be available in Marc Jacobs stores on November 19th.
