84 Grunge Fashion Advertorials

From Nostalgic 90s Catalogs to Flannel-Wearing Rocker Campaigns

— September 17, 2014 — Fashion
Grunge fashions are making a major comeback both on international runways and on the street. Looking to the 90s for inspiration, these looks are a fresh translation of nostalgic styles and are set to appeal to moody rockers with an appreciation for understated pieces. This effortlessly cool fashion fad marks the return of Nirvana-esque styles like ripped jean and flannel shirt pairings.

Whether embracing the return of plaid prints or combat boot accessories, grunge fashion ads are reviving nostalgic styles for the masses. These advertorial examples range from rocker-themed catalogs to campaigns that look to the past for inspiration.

A pioneer of grunge fashion is Saint Laurent's head designer Hedi Slimane, who's effortlessly cool rocker aesthetic rejects traditional notions of glamour.
