What goes around, comes around.

In an exciting turn of events, Marc Jacobs is reissuing his controversial Grunge collection – the one that flopped on the runway and got him fired from Perry Ellis in the ’90s.

If you’re not familiar with the story, a young Marc Jacobs presented his Spring 1993 grunge-themed collection under Perry Ellis, which was slammed with criticism worldwide.

25 years later, as fashion continues to embrace a ’90s revival, Jacobs is set to bring back the iconic pieces under his own eponymous label. We’re talking 26 looks that will be reproduced seam-by-seam, meaning there will be no updates to the original garments.

With the blessing of Perry Ellis, the reissue dubbed Redux Grunge Collection 1993/2018 will feature ready-to-wear, jewellery, accessories and shoes all recut in original prints, fabrics and embroideries.

So, basically, what goes around, comes around.

The collection is currently available to pre-order and will be released in Marc Jacobs boutiques worldwide and online November 15.
