WHEN it was announced last year that the former creative director of Dior Homme, Hedi Slimane, would replace Stefano Pilati at the helm of the YSL brand, everyone was eager to see what the Frenchman would do. Cue one rebrand and one hell of an Autumn/Winter ready to wear collection.

Fishnets, black eyeliner and the ‘bedhead look’ took centre stage at Slimane’s first A/W show under the Saint Laurent name. From patterned mohair cardigans to biker jackets and boyfriend blazers, no one did grunge as well as this French fashion house. And we mean no one.

Grunge may have appeared on the catwalk before (Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis 1992, Felder Felder 2008), but Slimine’s vision made grunge likable again, and not just for the emo elite. Don’t believe me? Then take a look for yourselves:

Won over? Then take a peek at our catwalk look-alike below!

cream pearl necklace / red tartan shirt / sheer maxi dress
black fishnet tights /essie ankle boots

Fishnet, studded boots, mesh and tartan. All scream grunge and the whole outfit only costs £75.98! If you deconstruct this look, each item is not only a wardrobe staple for the next season, but they are all perfect Summer/Autumn transitional pieces too! Pair the tartan shirt with some Topshop denim shorts and cowboy boots for the current western look, and team neon accessories with the sheer maxi dress for Ibizan chic!

Are you gonna go grunge this Autumn?
