NicoCarp_back2Grunge_1

From all corners of the globe this early nineties style is being soaked up for inspiration in current collection.  For designer Nico Carp, based in Bucharest, Romania he used the “back to grunge” concept in his AW 14.15 collection.

He says “This collection aims to keep the image of the past but also wants to reflect the grunge attitudef of these days, the joy of our own freedom.”

Remember in school when you ditched class to smoke ciggs on the fire escape? Oh, don’t pretend like you didn’t. We all did. Just like a group of misfits running around enjoying these days that will inevitable pass you by in a flash.

In this photographic essay by Maggie Fisher + Sophie Holin, we explore all areas of breaking the rules and kicking school hard.

Inspiration : At the Bottom

tumblr_mkdi74QKDl1rs1gaeo1_500

Sometimes when there is change there is a feeling of hitting a sort of low or bottom. When you rise out of that fog, you become a chameleon and adapt to the change. There are some changes going on here but eventually the waves will calm, and a new dawn will approach.

I’ve created this inspiration post to go with an alternative music video by The Vines that I happened to find on the internet (I haven’t seen it in years). So watch the video and scroll down this weeks inspiration patch.

The New Class: Swim Deep

c3b2caf3d196da04cfe5296b179c1b73

This post is a little bit of a departure from the usual, but what would it be without a little change. Swim Deep is a group from Birmingham, UK formed in 2010 with an indie pop sound and a nod to early 90s style. While their music is not typically what one would identify as the “grunge” sound, it’s clear that they were influenced by the style. I have their song “King City” on one of my Spotify playlists for late night dreaming. So, this post I thought would be good to appreciate the grunge style of the past that really transcends many musical genres even today.

Young Buzz: Jack Kilmer

1399628785049.cached

This Spring I happened to catch “Palo Alto”, director Gia Coppola’s debut feature film based on James Franco’s book on adolescent life in Northern California. I was instantly drawn to the “Coppola aesthetic”, as it relates so much to what high school was like for me growing up in Washington, DC. It really is a film to put on your list to watch.

Jack Kilmer, who is the son of actor Val Kilmer had a breakthrough role in the film. I think its safe to say that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing from him. His honest portrayal of Teddy reminded so much of the demeanor of guys in my own classes in school. From his grungy attire and all around angst, it really put me right back to being the awkward girl in school doing random things for all sorts of reasons.

He even captured the attention of Hedi Slimane, as he walked in the Saint Laurent mens SS15 show just a few months ago. Whether actor or model he’s got an interesting look that lends to all sorts of genres.

Photography by Piczo

Piczo is a London based photographer who has captivated me with his photography for i-D magazine (one of my longtime favorite mags). Originally from Osaka, he began taking photos of Japanese rock bands. Now his work captures the raw London youth and rock spirit that he is inevitably drawn to.  Much like myself.

Fallen Icon : Kristen Pfaff

WiYNYGtUpAI

In going through the icons of 90s past I was surprised that I hadn’t mentioned Hole bassist, Kristen Pfaff. While she was only in the band for a short time, she played and sung backup on their most critically acclaimed album, Live Through This.  She was a friend of Kurt Cobain and much of the grunge scene.

When she attended college in Minnesota she learned the bass and formed the band Janitor Joe with some friends. The band begun to take off in the early 90s and while on tour in California she caught the attention of Courtney Love and Eric Erlandson of Hole. After much persistence, she became the new bass player for Hole in ’93. She moved to Seattle to work with the band on the most iconic album of their career, Live Through This. During this time in Pacific Northwest it was such a creatively energetic time, enter friendships with Cobain and Erlandson.

The negative side to living in Seattle during this time was the noted heroin problem the city was facing. on June 16th 1994 ( just months after Kurt’s death) she was found in her apartment by a friend. She died of a heroin overdose. There are so many notable figures who we have lost during this musically rich time, but we can never forget them. Kristen Pfaff still holds a place in rock history, and is one of my favorite fallen stars from the grunge era.

Meet Skateboarder Ben Nordberg

tumblr_mxs5pf0QWn1s62g0ko1_1280

It seems that the skateboarder-model hybrid is reaching its pinnacle in the world of fashion these days. Much like the musician-model or actor-model days of the 80s and 90s. Since living in California I’ve been more influenced by skateboarders as models. Not models in the traditional sense of an editorial way but more of a muse and inspirational figure that inspires photographers.

Ben Nordberg is a British born skateboarder for Flip Skateboards. He grew up in Bath, England and started skating at age eleven. Now he’s based in Los Angeles, one of the skating meccas and doing some shoots along the way. Not only do I love his ‘off duty’ style, but his editorial work is pretty dope too.
