When brands collaborate with celebrities on exclusive collections, there’s usually two possible outcomes. Either the result could manifest into a lineup of Halloween costumes or a sad, watered-down version of the icon’s signature style. When Nasty Gal, the chief outfitter for all Coachella fashion bloggers, announced they’d be teaming up with Courtney Love, our expectations were rightfully modest.
The Hole singer, who’s famous for her grunge-femme wardrobe, has an arguably untouchable legacy with regards to fashion—her baby doll dresses and can’t-be-bothered nonchalance have been longtime sources of inspiration for top designers, most recently with Creative Director Heidi Slimane’s Saint Laurent takeover.
Fans of Love’s lingerie slips and Mary Jane footwear have never needed to tap into commercial outlets to emulate her look; similar pieces fill the shelves of local thrift stores, some marked by penny price tags. But for those who fear the thought of wearing a stranger’s leftovers or having to wash a worn-down piece before wearing it out, Nasty Gal’s conveniently boring collection is the perfect one-stop-shop to look like you have really great music taste and an all-organic fridge.
See a preview of the snoozy 18-piece offering, below, which will debut next Thursday on Nasty Gal’s site. The good news is, Courtney Love’s still amazing, her discography’s still undeniable and we’ll happily give her a pass because a girl’s gotta make some coin—we totally get it.
