Glunge Girl

1.23.2014


Warehouse striped dress, Oasis leather biker blazer (sample), TJ Max flannel shirt (similar here), Hue tights, Thrifted Vanessa Bruno clutch (similar here), Vintage aviator glasses ( similar here), ASOS platform booties (also seen here). Shot by Isaac Lacey.





Around the time I started blogging, I was also working freelance with the publisher Rizzoli on a number of fashion and photography books, including my favorite project to date: Rick Owens' monograph. Not only did I have the once in a lifetime opportunity to sit down with the designer in Paris and attend a few of his shows during PFW, but I also helped edit the book's essays, all of which are epic and deserve to be read twice-over in one sitting. If you're looking for an amazing gift for someone who loves avant garde fashion, his monograph is as good as it gets.

Point is, this post was inspired by my resulting admiration for Rick Owens, who coined his signature style as glunge: the perfect blend of grunge and glamour. And, although I'm not draped head-to-toe in his monochromatic layers and buttery leathers, I'd like to think that there's a way to incorporate his gritty, rocker-meets-goth aesthetic into your everyday style, no matter how far removed from that you might actually be.
