Lina Arrojo's Latest Collection Goes Beyond Grunge

Nocturnal Beauty

Nevermind Gringe. Nocturnal is the New Vanguard

Lina Arrojo’s latest collection pulls apart the quintessential grunge aesthetic, replacing thrift with couture. “The messy, I-don’t-care look became fashionable during the grunge era,” Arrojo says. “It’s when ‘lived-in’ became a watchword for style. As pioneers of razor cutting, we are aligned with this deconstructed, distressed, perfectly imperfect direction. Yet we also love high-fashion couture. With lots of 1990s-era inspiration running through fashion and beauty right now, Nocturnal is my contemporary, DIY stew ofthe two.” —Kristen Heinzinger, managing editor
