Speaking of the ’90s: grunge. Plaid, fuzzy sweaters, slip dresses…it could be said that vintage Courtney Love was fashion’s biggest muse of the year. Dries Van Noten really kicked things off with his whisper-thin checked tops (and the subsequent Zara knockoffs). Phillip Lim also hit the note early on, sending models down the runway wearing “I [heart] Nueva York” tees, styled with plaid shirts tied around their waists. Things reached a fever pitch when Saint Laurent walked in the fall, and suddenly that Kurt Cobain-esque star-studded, baby blue cardigan was on everyone’s wish lists. Givenchy also had shades of teen spirit in the form oversized knits layered over sheer skirts.
