It’s no surprise that Grunge’s King and Queen weren’t too happy about designer Marc Jacobs making what they wore on a daily basis fashionable for the masses. Back in 1992, at the height of the Grunge movement, Marc was head designer at Perry Ellis and decided to capitalize on trend of flannel shirts and Doc Martens boots. The collection wasn’t a success and actually got him fired for Perry Ellis in 1993.
Jacobs sent some pieces to Mr. and Mrs. Cobain, and of course them being them, they trashed it all. In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Courtney said, “Marc sent me and Kurt his Perry Ellis Grunge Collection….we burned it. We were punkers, we didn’t like that kind of thing.”
I’m sure she wished she would have kept it. Vintage Marc, hello! Courtney just launched a new fashion website, WhatCourtneyWoreToday.com.
The craziness continues.
