Marc Jacobs Reissues His 1993 ‘Grunge’ Collection For Special 2018 Capsule

Marc Jacobs announces the launch of Redux Grunge Collection 1993/2018 Marc Jacobs, a capsule celebrating 25 years since the iconic Spring 1993 ‘Grunge’ collection he designed for Perry Ellis. Originally created during Jacobs’ tenure at American brand Perry Ellis, Jacobs was famously fired when critics panned the 1993 show. Highlighting looks from the legendary runway show, this capsule brings the storied collection to a new time and audience.

25 years later, Perry Ellis International congratulates Marc Jacobs on revisiting the “first of its kind collection that changed the direction of contemporary womenswear.” (We can discuss the high hypocrisy of fashion at a later date.)

Jacobs decided to reintroduce the historic collection for 2018, this time for his eponymous label, saying: “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.” 26 key looks are reissued in their entirety, from head-to-toe, offering RTW, jewelry, shoes and accessories, all made in the original prints, fabrics, and embroideries.

A campaign, shot by Juergen Teller and featuring a range of models including Gigi Hadid and Dree Hemingway, will begin appearing in December magazines and on select digital outlets.

The collection can be found starting November 15th at marcjacobs.com, select department stores, and Marc Jacobs boutiques worldwide.

Ralph Lauren, Brandon Maxwell, King Ranch, and Erin Wasson Help Mark the Brand’s 135th Year in Business

Lucchese Bootmaker, headquartered in El Paso Texas, is celebrating its 135th anniversary this year with a variety of partnerships and capsule collections.

Below are a few of the highlights of how Lucchese is marking its anniversary this year:

Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson in the Jacqueline Boot: Designed with Texas native Erin Wasson, the Jacqueline boot ($1,595 with free ground shipping) is a traditional western silhouette for the modern woman. The smooth black goat is accented by white stitch pull holes and piping. Single stitch welt construction. Leather sole. Handmade in Texas.

  • ERIN WASSON: Continuing their presence in the style arena, Lucchese just released a limited collection of fashion-focused boots with model/designer Erin Wasson. The brand has partnered with another iconic Texas brand — Neiman Marcus – to provide wider access to both traditional boots and fashion boots alike. This move signifies a shift in consumer demand, as exotic cowboy boots are now becoming a staple in consumer wardrobes, available at a wider range of retailers ranging from Western-focused to luxury fashion.

    The King Ranch Barn Boot

  • KING RANCH: Lucchese has partnered with another legendary Texas brand, the King Ranch, to produce a limited edition collection of boots that are rugged enough for the harsh environment of South Texas. In addition to this partnership, Lucchese has released a well-reviewed technical product called the Barn Boot, its first foray into the “work boot” category. The mud and grime releasing outsole and cushioned insole was an immediate hit with both new and long-time Lucchese loyalists.
  • RALPH LAUREN: In addition to staying true to its roots with traditional products, Lucchese was in the spotlight during New York Fashion Week in September. Ralph Lauren, who has worn Lucchese boots for many years, selected them as his favorite bootmaker. Lucchese worked with Mr. Lauren to create co-branded boots which debuted in Central Park at the legendary designer’s 50th-anniversary collection show.
  • BRANDON MAXWELL: Fashion designer and fellow Texan Brandon Maxwell used custom boots as the invite for guests at his Spring/Summer 2019 New York Fashion Week show.”It was a dream to work with Lucchese on our invitations,” said Brandon. “Lucchese is a quintessential Texas brand so to share this bit of my home state with our guests immediately showcased hospitality. Seeing videos of friends and guests receive this big Texas dose of generosity made it all the more special.

Texas-based Lucchese is a legendary bootmaker and iconic brand of the American West. Applying the same craftsmanship principles and techniques since 1883, Lucchese artisans use only the finest leathers, preeminent materials and a proprietary twisted cone last to construct boots of unrivaled quality, fit, comfort and style.

Toys for Tots, a 71-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Toys for Tots Program fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in over 800 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 251 million children have been assisted. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. (For more information, visit www.toysfortots.org.)

Today through November 30, Sears members and customers can make a cash donation* to the charity via checkout pin pads at all Sears stores nationwide. All proceeds from donations at Sears will be used by the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to purchase toys for disadvantaged children during the holidays. Toys purchased will include items on the Fab 15 List to bring joy to less fortunate children. In addition, now through December 9, more than 200 Kmart stores nationwide will display Marine Toys for Tots collection boxes. Shoppers are also invited to buy toys sold at Kmart for donation to the organization.
