Grungecore Makes a Comeback Ripped jeans, holey round-neck sweaters, and baggy cardigans are all part of the grunge style that’s making a nostalgic return, reminiscent of singer Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, seen in Paris and Milan. Gucci, for instance, had models wear distressed knit sweaters and small knit beanies as fashion accessories. Givenchy layered long plaid shirts, while Egonlab truly embraced the grunge movement with rinse-washed denim jackets featuring unique sleeves, layered over striped dress shirts and brown-tinted jeans.
Oversized Collars Oversized collars have taken center stage on the Fall/Winter 2023 fashion runways. Ami showcased oversized pilot jackets with enormous collars, and Dior featured wide faux fur collars on trench coats.
