Bad girl Courtney Love worked with hip-hot fashion retailer Nasty Gal, launching a collection that recreates her signature 90s looks with flirty dresses, sultry lingerie, Mary Jane shoes and even racy must-have accessories like Titty Tape.
Musing about her first clothing collaboration, Ms. Love says: “I haven’t put my name on much, and I wasn’t going to be in on it unless it was a real collaboration. We went through my closet and pulled out some very special pieces that I had saved. I doodled on the original sketches, adding details like handcrafted, romantic, three-dimensional accents.”
Rock star lingerie meets real world was inspiration for the collection points out Love, “We looked at some of my rock-star ’90s stuff and redid them in a more contemporary way … two dresses are modernized from really famous ones I wore back in the day, done in fabrics that are so luxe.”
Among her favorites, the Doll Parts Babydoll in black or light blue satin is empire-waisted, slightly scrunched at the neckline and trimmed with small navy rosebuds. It has drawstring closures that pucker sleeves, a plunging square back, raw-edged asymmetric hem and robe belt.
Her absolute favorite? The Celebrity Skin long-sleeved, unitard in sheer black lace, with long sleeves, raw hems, boat neck, small navy rosebud at center and a daring scoop back.
Its inspiration? “I found my inner bitch and ran with her.”
The super-sexy lingerie includes aptly named Sugar Coma high-waisted lace panty and Burn Black lace crop top and panty.
A Bulletproof Heart velvet choker, Take the Throne tiara and sultry net life stockings can complete looks, transforming any girl into alt rocker dimensions.
The collection launched earlier this year in Nasty Gal’s Los Angeles flagship store, and is now available on the retailer’s website.
Loving the last word (and always making it memorable) Courtney Love comments on the collection’s mood: “It says ‘I’m not only a woman. I’m a force of nature.'”
