Courtney Love releases clothing collection inspired by memoir


Courtney Love has teamed up with label Midnight Studios for a limited-edition capsule clothing collection.

Inspired by 2006 memoir Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love, California’s Midnight Studios partnered with the Hole vocalist for a capsule of graphic gear exclusive to the first annual Hypefest in Brooklyn, New York this weekend (06-07Oct18), presented by street style website Hypebeast.

Courtney shared the news of her forthcoming collection on social media, tweeting: “#Repost @midnightusa… MIDNIGHT STUDIOS for COURTNEY LOVE. PHOTOGRAPHED IN COURTNEY’S LOS ANGELES ESTATE FEATURING HER PERSONAL WARDROBE. AVAILABLE AT @HYPEFEST OCTOBER 6-7”.

The collection of shirts, sweaters, pants and bags are emblazoned with imagery lifted from the pages of Courtney’s book, with the photos shot at the singer’s Los Angeles estate.

Styled alongside clothing and jewellery from the singer’s personal wardrobe, the collection includes her handwritten diary entries and lyrics, alongside photographs, artwork and DIY show flyers. Oversized T-shirts highlight the bold imagery, with newspaper clippings, doodles and even the book’s title emblazoned on the front, rear and sleeves of the monochrome layers.

A hoodie and tote bag sport lyrics nabbed from Tom Waits‘ album Heartattack and Vine, “Don’t you know there ain’t no devil, it’s just god when he’s drunk.”

Hole’s classic album Celebrity Skin turned 20 in September, and later this month, the 54-year-old singer will receive a star-studded tribute at Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser in New York.
