Fashion’s infatuation with ’90s nostalgia isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The latest revival comes in the form of Marc Jacobs’ famous 1993 collection for Perry Ellis that shaped the decade’s grunge look—and ultimately led to him being fired from the brand.

Despite being blasted by fashion critics, the range of grunge pieces became some of the decade’s most defining looks and went on to kickstart Jacobs’ career. So it only makes sense that now, as fashion continues to look back to the ’90s, Jacobs bring back the iconic pieces under his own namesake brand 25 years later.

With a capsule collection dubbed ‘Redux Grunge Collection 1993/2018 Marc Jacobs,’ Jacobs is reissuing a total of 26 looks from the collection he originally designed for Perry Ellis. The looks will include ready-to-wear, jewelry, shoes and accessories, all made in the original prints, fabrics and embroideries. Prices range from $35 for socks to $1,200 for the suede overcoats.

“The ‘Grunge’ collection epitomized the first time in my professional career I was unwavering in my determination to see my vision come to life on the runway, without creative compromise,” Jacobs said in a statement from the brand.

To celebrate the reissuing of the pieces, the brand unveiled a campaign shot by Juergen Teller, which features a range of models including Gigi Hadid, Slick Woods, Dree Hemingway, and more.

Currently available for pre-order, the entire collection will be available to shop on November 15 at marcjacobs.com and in select department stores and Marc Jacobs boutiques worldwide.
