Courtney Love is a rebel and the queen of 90’s grunge rock. She’s always gone full force in anything she’s done. Whether it be crowd-surfing in a slip-dress, starting a fight with Madonna at an awards ceremony, or being the first person sued for defamation on Twitter; Love has always been a whirlwind of unpredictability.
The former “Hole” front-woman has re-emerged over the past few years acting in the critically acclaimed television show ‘Empire’ and now adding fashion designer to her many hats. Love has collaborated with Sophia Amoruso of the trendy brand “Nasty Gal” for a line of clothes that makes our inner 90’s teen pull on her mini dress and black lipstick.
The collection, “Love, Courtney”, is everything we could hope to see from the free-spirited songstress. Love looked back in time for inspiration from some of her most iconic moments.
“The starting point was lingerie meets real world. We looked at some of my rock-star ’90s stuff and redid that in a more contemporary way. There are two dresses that are modernized from really famous ones I wore back in the day, done in fabrics that are so luxe. It’s such a cool collection: it feels new and slightly nostalgic at the same time.” –Courtney Love
There are very clear nuisances to some of her most famous videos, and performances throughout the collection including baby doll dresses, silk slip dresses, a tiara (which is now sold out), and her favorite piece a lace bodysuit (pictured below).
The collection, which ranges from $48-$188 is a modern ode to the balance of rebellious turmoil and femininity Love embodied during her most successful musical years. Love’s effortlessly cool, edgy; style translates to the very essence of what it means to be young, wild, and free.
