A new clothing range called “Kurt Was Here,” has been created by the Kurt Cobain estate in memory of the legendary Nirvana lead singer.
The new collection has been selected from Cobain’s large catalogue of sketches and hand-written notes. According to spin.com, a report in Rolling Stone claimed that all the templates for the designs are from the original drawings and not a single one was “edited or re-sized.”
The new clothing line is a collaboration between Live Nation Merchandise and the Cobain estate’s business entity, The End of Music, LLC. Frances Bean Cobain is rumoured to be involved in curating the collection.
The “Kurt Was Here” designer range is being sold through Barneys, Selfridges, and Cobain’s official online store KurtCobainShop.com Live Nation said that they were intent on capitalising on Cobain’s legacy revealing in a statement:
“We believe that the importance of art is exceedingly potent in today’s social and political climate, and that it is the right time to share this collection of Kurt’s work with artists, collectors and fans, allowing them to experience Kurt’s legacy in a new way, and collectively celebrate his lasting impact on the world.”
There has been no response to the statement from Frances Bean Cobain so far. Earlier this year, one of Kurt’s sweaters sold for $75,000 and an auction of the hospital gown worn by Cobain during Nirvana’s 1992 performance at Reading Festival.
