Summer of Grunge by Abandon

The alternative 90’s style is making a comeback, and Abandon are borrowing elements from that era without making us all look like Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan.

Abandon has bought the Grunge Deluxe trend back up to speed again, taking inspiration from Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs using deluxe washes.

The key trend of the era, which was heavily represented on the catwalks, was grunge. Abandon is keying on this versatile trend that champions the nonchalant, layered, un-groomed casual look that is set to become popular for Spring/Summer 2010.

Layers of lattice – and strips of shredding – are inserted into jersey tops, dresses, and leggings. Rock-inspired, denim trucker jackets can be teamed with haunting acid-wash tees and shredded leggings for a psychedelic twist to the grunge-chick look.

Recreating summer grunge with a deluxe edge, ditsy carnation prints are mixed up with lashings of lace, evoking wild nights of abandon.
