The partnership between Queen of Grunge and Nasty Gal is a consolidated one, as the winning team collaborated together on an equally appealing, party-ready collection earlier this year, which unsurprisingly sold quickly. Like in the case of her first Courtney Love x Nasty Gal collection, for this one Love drew inspiration from her real-life wardrobe, adding, however, more Suffragette, girl-power motifs, as well as more risqué patterns.

“This [collection] still has some nostalgia, but also has sort of Moulin Rouge fantasy pieces that are kind of over the top,” Courtney Love told Vogue. Then, citing one of the collection’s bodysuit, she basically described the entire collection using just 10 words: “You know, it’s for Christmas. Nasty Gal for Christmas.”

From what we can now see, the lineup could be definitely described as a potpourri of rock-meets-Moulin-Rouge vibes with animal prints, black mini dresses and glam rock bodysuits rocking the scene. As for the latter, Love regarded her lace appliqués and sensual silhouettes as a relished comeback, as she is “a fiend for bodysuits”.

More bon-ton pilgrim collars, as well as vaguely Victorian-inspired lace hems and motifs sort of revisit the late decades of the XIX century, adding an intriguing retro-futuristic appeal to the entire collection. A cavalry coat in navy seemed to be specifically designed to recreate such a motif, and more specifically serving as “something you’d see on a suffragette in 1890.”

Of course, Nineties-inspired references could not go missing. Here, Courtney Love translated signature Nineties slip dresses, oversized cardigans and must-have accessories such as chokers and headbands to their more Eighties-inspired counterparts, with lace aplenty and sensually chic floral embroideries embellishing the hems.

Cozy t-shirts and delicate mini dresses in pink are purely grunge-inspired, as we can choose to wear them in a more casual chic way, or with completely contrasting staples, such as shredded jeans and leather jackets, as if we were members of a local girl grunge band.

But above all, these are all clothes Courtney Love herself would wear, and we all know that is all that matters, when it comes to advertising a collection! “These are clothes that I would wear!” fiercely concluded Love. “I’m all about ‘If you got it, flaunt it.’”
