The Kurt Cobain estate has launched a new apparel collection featuring Cobain’s artwork and personal journal entries
The End of Music LLC, the business entity behind Cobain’s publicity rights, has teamed up with Live Nation for new clothing inspired by the late Nirvana frontman.
Curated by his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, the “Kurt Was Here” collection features T-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies featuring Cobain’s sketches, paintings, and handwritten notes. The collection is available today at Barneys, U.K. department store Selfridges, and online at KurtCobainShop.com.
“We believe that the importance of art is exceedingly potent in today’s social and political climate,” a rep for Live Nation merchandise tells Rolling Stone, “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.”
A portion of sales from the collection will be donated to the Jed Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention among teens and young adults. Learn more about the foundation here.
