Helena Severin gets us in the Grunge mood in ‘Nirvana Stimmung’ by Bernd Priml for the F/W 13.14 issue of Die Presse Magazine. Standing on the Sturmfront of sartorial nihilism this artful interpretation of 90’s Nirvana presents a powerful picture of post apocalyptic angst. A revival of the highest order, by remaking this trend in the least likely way, the ultimate anti-fashion statement has found a home in the high art of haute-couture. Capturing the era of aesthetic apathy (stylist) Barbara Zach honors the roots of the original movement with defiant designs that rage through the pages in a frenzy of punk/metal madness. Daring to disturb, with dirt filled makeup by Nicole Jaritz and harried creations by Alex Moser, this dramatic collaboration brings the beauty of Grunge-Glam to life. Fashion on the fringe while these images are a far cry from the flannel world of Kurt Cobain they still evoke the spirit of independence that has come to define the seminal Seattle Sound.
