What is Grunge?

Despite its roots being far elder than we all can remember, grunge is still a spectacular trend. With Nirvana's rising in the 90s, it had a rising effect on the fashion world. Of course, we can't ignore Kurt Cobain's charm, too. Followers of grunge were so amazingly devoted that it has become a style of living. Grunge music, clothing, and grimy image have all blended and created a lifestyle: Rebelling against society. From the 80s until now, the grunge aesthetic always represented the image of riot, uprising, and revolution. Grunge influences fashion trends like emo, pastel goth, or e-girl. It's a dark style that can be combined with any color for different aesthetics. We believe that clothing has an enormous effect on the lifestyle. Otherwise, wearing ripped jeans and heavy layering with grimy imagery cannot just be a fashion. Grunge aesthetic isn't only about clothing in a specific way. It's also a style of living that includes its values and motifs. Protesting traditional society, cynicism, and not caring about what people think about you – Grunge aesthetic comprises them all. Also, the colors such as black, grey, silver, red, and purple are the ones that show pessimism. Find the pieces in Cosmique Studio that offer the rebellion in your soul, and start rising!
