Throwback to the 90s, Calvin Klein "Reissues Collection" has arrived.

The 90s brought us Grunge all the way from Seattle, a fusion of post Punk fashion and music. The most notable exponent of this slouchy style was, of course, the late Kurt Cobain, Nirvana's iconic front man. The secret of “Grunge” style apparently is to not try too hard, be a little bit messy, be a little bit I don’t care what I look like. Laid-back layering, denim jacket over an over-sized flannel shirt worn over a long sleeve thermal or t-shirt and well-worn jeans. Stomping around in an old pair of combat boots, Doc Martens or beaten up hi-tops and a plain leather bracelet, the only jewellery allowed. Long messy hair flying free or hidden beneath a beanie or restrained with a cotton scarf and that's not just the blokes. Grunge has now morphed into Surf and Skate Style and is as popular as ever. One brand that also encapsulated the ‘90s was New York’s Calvin Klein Jeans, whose iconic adverts with Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss became a symbol of the decade. Great news their Re-Issues range has just arrived at Urban Outfitters, the label has brought back its classic CK t-shirts and denim to be embraced by a new generation as seen on One Direction’s Harry Styles spotted with a scrunched up scarf on his mop and a super cool Calvin Klein Jeans Re-Issue Black Sweatshirt
