Luxe Grunge anyone?

So, lately I've came across this posts about the "luxe grunge look", it's about the MNG fashion show 2011 motif. Since I have no idea what is it, I tried to do a little research, and here's what I found out.

Luxe Grunge (also known as boho-chic or "luxe bohemian") is a chicer updated grunge-boho collection; an unkempt approach to wardrobe, popularized by celebrities such as the Olsen twins.
First motivated by Seattle's groundbreaking rock scene in the 1990s – the modern update contains all the mainstays of yesterday’s grunge (flannel, plaid, layers and leg warmers) alongside today’s sophisticated pieces, including capes, shawls and jackets ([www.theitlists.com], Sept 2006). Grunge elements featured strongly in fashion collections in Autumn 2006, including styles referred to "cocktail grunge" and "modern goth". via wikipedia
In short, 
I kinda love this look, the rock-and-roll-laid-back kind of style. Very fancy and chic! The different layers of patterns and fabrics of clothes. The boots, scarves, furrr, leather and rocker-chic accessories!
