The Kurt Cobain estate reveals new official clothing line

It’s been a while since we have heard any news come out of the Kurt Cobain estate, which to date has an estimated worth of $11.2 million. 

But we’ve just heard estate has collaborated with Live Nation to produce a fashion collection titled Kurt Was Here

The 50 piece collection will feature prints of sketches and hand-written notes from the Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain himself, launched by this estate in tribute. 

It has also been reported that Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Hole front-woman Courtney Love, has played a role in the line’s development. The 27 year old controls the publicity rights to her father’s name and image and is reportedly responsible for the curation of some of the designs. 

The Kurt Was Here collection of tees, sweatshirts and hoodies will include sketches and notes which have not been edited or resized for the garments. This is in an apparent bid to maintain the integrity of the line.

The new range is a partnership between Live Nation Merchandise and the Cobain estate’s business entity, and will be sold at a number of retailers.

In a statement about the line, Live Nation said:

“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.”

If one thing is certain, we know hardcore Nirvana fans will be snatching the latest Kurt Cobain merchandise up as quick as they can. Or… they’ll hate it.
