Mysterious Kurt and Courtney-Themed Clothing Collection Emerges In Japan
From Rolling Stone:
A mysterious Japanese clothing collection featuring photos of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love is making waves online. Apparently a three-part collaboration between retailer Eyescream, Spade Magazine and Number (N)ine designer Takahiro Miyashita, the capsule collection features sixteen "extremely limited" pieces of clothing printed with images of Cobain and Love. At least fourteen of the photos come from photographer Kenji Kubo.
Miyashita collaborated with Undercover's Jun Takahashi on some of the visuals, while OpenStrings provided the t-shirts for the artwork. To complement the grunge tone, there's even a one-off Pearl Jam tee offered as a perk if you purchase 10,000 yen of product (approximately $130). Check out the collection here.
No word yet if Courtney Love knows about the existence of this collection. Watch this space.
