It’s been a wicked near-year in waiting for the debut of Courtney Love‘s clothing line, Never The Bride. We’ve always been able to depend on Courtney to keep us on pins and needles, wondering what the hell she’s got up her sleeve this week or the next, and I can say that when she teased the universe with a suggestion of launching her own clothing line last December, I got myself quite the fashion-boner. And I don’t even have a downtown dangle, y’all! Plus, from the looks Courtney tweeted from the upcoming line, that thing would mess up all the she-sexy in a few of her pieces.
The line is inspired by Courtney’s signature quirky affinity for tattered, vintage clothing. There’s an impeccable clincher to the history and development of this clothing line, too. All of the included pieces are re-purposed from her days in the costuming department at Paramount. Every last one of them had a play date with destiny where play date was more like an expiration date and destiny looked more like a dumpster on the backside of the studio lot that reeked of rotten catering and film extras’ urine. I’m talking about garbage, ladies and gents. This clothing line, that is expected to sit at a luxury price point, was supposed to be sent off to the Los Angeles landfill. Not surprisingly, another we-are-all-concerned-because-of-the-questionable-hat that Courtney wears is Teh Hoarder hat. Ooh, is that cat poop on your astro turf sombrero, Love?!
I’m really looking forward to seeing the collection in its entirety whenever she ends up launching it (rumored channel for release: Net-a-Porter). What do you think? Are you excited or totally grossed out by the 30-year-old, moldy-chic approach to the clothing line? Or more importantly, ARE YOU SURPRISED IN THE SLIGHTEST?!
