grunge (high end) shopping: saint laurent fw13

While spending lots of money on your grunge wardrobe seems a bit counter counterculture, the offering from Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent for FW13 seems to fit the bill of grunge style quite nicely. There is a little bit of everything - plaid, baby doll dresses, fuzzy cardigans, ripped and distressed jeans, etc. The real winner for me, though, is the combat boot. Mr. Slimane really nailed the aesthetic and modernized it in a way that gives it a subtle polish and sophistication. You can peruse the selections here, here, here, and here.
