I Think I’m Paranoid And Complicated: Grunge
I was doing a bit of research as I did know bands like Nirvana, The Melvins, Pearl Jam or Hole but I didn’t really know what was the gurnge movement about. Here it is:
A response to the vanity glam movement of the 80’s. Grunge was huge and a posture against the politics of the moment. Thanks to the likes of Mr. Cobain, kids who didn’t have hope or faith on anything believed they could become someone, someday.
As what goes around comes around it was an “in” trend 1-2 years ago. Luckily some of us are faithful to what we like and I like grunge music but what I really love is its message and the very off duty style. One of my favorite models, Ms. Erin Wasson, is pretty gurngy style wise. I consider this trend very unisex, androgynous and what not and very sexy all at the same time. I love the formula: checked shirts, stripes, ripped jeans, converse, crazy hair and military boots.
I accept every single style as long as it defines the person wearing it but I love to be eclectic, I never want to be the same. That is the reason why I mix everything I like to make it my own. I take a bit of goth, a bit of punk, a bit of heavy metal, a bit of glam, a bit of girlie and a bit of grunge and I mix it all. If I evolute as a person why should my style be plain and boring?
What do you thing about grunge, fashion wise?
