Courtney Love deserves a large dollop of credit for popularising vintage-meets-grunge dressing in the early 90s. Now, the Hole frontwoman and ELLE cover star is making her signature style available to the public through a new clothing line.
Called Never the Bride, the range consists of reworked vintage pieces, all embellished with lace trims, sequins and beading.
Love publicised the line in a series of tweeted photos. In them, model Chloe Norgaard comes across as an ombré-tressed Miss Havisham, sitting in her attic and listening to old Nirvana records in a lace crop top and satin bloomers.
The project has been years in the makingdecades, even. The singer says she built the collection out of pieces she acquired from the Paramount Pictures wardrobe department in the 1980s. She was supposed to dispose of the musty pieces, but instead squirreled them away much to our benefit, it appears.
Love tweeted that fans should expect to see the line on Net-a-porter soon, but the luxury etailer has yet to confirm the arrangement.
What we really want to know is this: where can we find those cobalt-blue metallic DMs?
