Whoever though grunge was just reserved for Marc Jacobs might be wrong.

On Friday, Versace revealed their new Fall/Winter ready to wear line at Milan Fashion Week, and it had an unexpectedly grungy and youthful twist. The luxury label paid homage to the 90s with oversized safety pins, stocking hats, cutout sweater tights, signature fitted bodices, and neon brights. Standout ensembles included electric colored slip dresses with baroque patterns layered over tights and a plethora of asymmetrical cut LBDs which were just about has glam as grunge can get.

In her interview with Vogue, Donatella Versace stated that the collection inspired by her  want of a little bit of imperfection in the Instagram era and her love of 90s music – especially Nirvana who also was the soundtrack for the event. Fashion insiders believe that the fresh, 90s-esque  take on the brand was to bring in a younger fans.

Decades collided on the runways as OG supermodels Shalom Harlow and Stephanie Seymour made their returns to the catwalk to open and close the show. Harlow and Seymour walked aside a myriad of today’s top fashion influencers including Kaia Gerber, the Hadid sisters, and Kendall Jenner, who was notably elusive during much of New York Fashion Week.

Traditional glamour aside, Versace’s designs will always remain sought after and timeless. Many believe that the metal heavy, safety pin adorned collection was a nod to one of Gianni Versace’s iconic gravity-defying safety pin gown made famous by Elizabeth Hurley which debuted on the runway nearly 25 years ago.
