This week's essentials have a whiff of teen spirit, as our favorite designers modernize a look that Seattle’s grunge scene popularized. Riccardo Tisci updates plaid, an archetypal print from the era, with an oversized cut on this season's incarnation of the Doberman print. A pair of distressed jeans from Pierre Balmain retains a formal edge with a mock-pleat front. Patchworked textures, like brushed suede, matte leather, and calf hair, nod to the layered look, as seen across Saint Laurent's high-top sneakers or Rick Owens' "Island" dunks. The devil’s in the details with a distressed leather wallet from DSquared2 or Saint Laurent's leopard print mohair scarf, to be worn loose and unwrapped.
