Headed by the likes of Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens and Meadham Kirchoff, the glam grunge look has had a cult following that is not going away anytime soon. The anti-trend mixes black deconstructed clothes with leather accessories for a tough directional style. For SS09, Demeulemeester took inspiration from a caged bird, with delicate chains hanging from the models' faces. Floor-length black skirts and dresses were teamed with leather waistcoats and tailored cut-out jackets.
This trend is all about street style, so it comes as no surprise that we found many a doting Demeulemeester fan channelling the look. The zebra wedge boots and tartan bag add a personal touch, whilst the black maxi-dress and leather jacket are classic glam grunge. Sheer fabrics and cut out detailing will take this through to summer, but until then layer up that leather.
