Courtney Love is an indelible force on the music, art and fashion scene. The iconic living legend queen has made enticing appearances on Sons of Anarchy and Empire, leaving fans and admirers following and anticipating her next surprising debut. Fortunately for the fashion set currently regaling in the revival of the 90’s grunge scene and avid fans of Ms. Love, the team at Nasty Gal has collaborated with Love on a collection, Love, Courtney, that is reminiscent of Love’s most memorable and beloved looks. Outfits that hold a whisper of sultry doll baby, a hint of gregarious sex, a smattering of body and grit, and a full helping of unapologetic, charmingly narcissistic, attitude.

Without a doubt the collection is nostalgic and full of something sentimental. Perhaps the sentimentality is drawn from memories or a yearning for another time. Perhaps the sentimental feelings come from the notion that this collection isn’t simply a collaboration that will crash and burn and fade out with passing trends. The Love, Courtney collection feels like an intimate invitation from Love herself. An invitation to get examine her doll parts and to be the girl with the most cake. It’s full of Love’s tantalizing spirit and includes pieces that embody the 90’s. Velvet, lace, satin, crystal, rhinestone- these are embellishments meant to dazzle, and fabrics aching to be touched, lived in, lived through. This collection is Love.
