R13 is the American brand made in New York that comes straight out of the grunge and super creative imagination of Chris Leba, whom we adore at La Grande Boutique. If classic jeans, a perfect ripped white T-shirt, black leather biker jacket and a pair of black lace-up rangers are some of his essentials (see his exclusive interview for La Grande Boutique), he revisits the essentials of rock wardrobe every season like leopard and military prints and layering, this art of putting layers, which always gives a slightly lanky but cool look. During his 2020-2021 fall-winter fashion show in New York, Chris Leba presented a new version of his urban fashion vision. This season, it was the photographer Anton Corbjin who was his inspiration. Black and white images and rock icons. Here’s what we remembered and, luckily, we already have at La Grande Boutique. Don’t thank us!
Chris Leba’s signature? Gigantic coats, which swallow the silhouette. The more you feel like you have a coat for two, the better. Comfort ratio, a thousand. Style ratio, infinite!
What could be more stylish than daring a hat that stands out? Halfway between the fashion accessory and the provocative piece, the gigantic hat is the detail you need.
Denim is the identity of the R13 brand and its originality is also part of the brand’s DNA. Asymmetrical, destroy, torn, it takes on a different form each season. The jeans that we spotted on the catwalk? Cross over denim, with an asymmetrical zip and button fastening. We already have some (below).
Style is a question of attitude, but also of fabric! Leather is a big winner in Chris Leba’s next winter collection, which he combines with denim to give it a more urban look. Adopt it without further delay.
So stylish that it is on the way to becoming a basic item in rock wardrobe, leopard faux fur is a must! Adopt it now, wear it every season, you’re sure to never make a mistake. The leopard is the only guaranteed flawless print. We take advantage of it, right?
What could be better to twist a slightly wise look than an army touch? The good news in all of this is that you can wear a military-inspired jacket under a big coat in winter, under a wool jacket in autumn and over a slightly bohemian dress in summer. If it’s essential? It was you who said it!
Perfectly in the grunge trend, the camouflage print is super attractive! We love it on easy pieces such as a t-shirt or a sweatshirt, which we match with basics to stay feminine. Right in the army and rock atmosphere, it’s fun, so we dare!
Who says grunge silhouette does not say abandoned silhouette. Without delay, we are wearing beautiful belts to give structure to our looks. The must ? Choose them very large so that they hang a little. Yes we want structure, but we still like it when it’s free. Ah, fashion …
We love the mix of genres, and turquoise jewelry has nothing to prove to us, we love it all the time, during summer and winter, with a bohemian dress or with a 100% rock look. You don’t have your range yet? It’s now or never!
What could be more rock than a biker jacket? Go to the basics and start from the beginning, by adopting a leather jacket that will follow you from summer to winter. Take it oversize, and wear it with everything, that’s how it will fit you. Do not leave it anymore. There, you are trendy.
