Hedi Slimane’s highly anticipated first collection for Saint Laurent – click here for a refresher -- was largely underwhelming. And his second?

Well, it’s super high end luxury grunge. Which... fine.

But I see girls creating this look, and maybe even cuter, from $5 purchases at thrift stores or their boyfriends’ closets. Nothing about Hedi’s designs elevates these pieces. So why would anyone pay thousands and thousands of dollars to recreate something that, in its source spirit of the Seattle sound, would never have a label attached to it anyway?
