The singer took time out of her busy schedule of being Courtney Love to tweet at Hedi Slimane: “having gasms at the idea of rich ladies buying what we used to wear, finally someone got the actual look exact, no beanies.”
Just who exactly is she referring to who got the grunge look wrong? Oh, just you know, Marc Jacobs, who many in the fashion industry consider to be the king of Nineties grunge. In his review of Saint Laurent’s fall 2013 collection, Style.com‘s Tim Blanks brought up both Jacobs and Anna Sui as examples of designers who do justice to the decade. “Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs immediately spring to mind as masterful mediums of pop-cultural watersheds like The Factory or the Beats,” he wrote.
But Love disagrees. “Hedi is a genius,” she told The Fashion Law‘s Julie Zerbo over a Facebook conversation. “No offense to MJ but he never got it right. This is what it really was. Hedi knows his shit. He got it accurate, and MJ and Anna did not.”
“I love it,” she added of the collection. “It reminds me of Value Village.”
You heard it from Courtney Love: Value Village at luxury prices. Just what the world needed.
