Courtney Love

The Meadham Kirchhoff Spring/Summer 2012 Show featured Courtney Love-inspired looks.

Other Courtney Love-influenced collections : Dior Spring/Summer 2004 (Courtney Love was one of the inspirations of this collection originally influenced by Marlene Dietrich), Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2013 (the shoes and Peter Philips’ makeup of this grunge-influenced collection were slightly inspired by Courtney Love), Felder Felder Autumn/Winter 2008-2009, Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 (a picture of Courtney Love, in her evening-gown-and-tiara-era, was tacked on the inspiration board ; moreover, Courtney Love is one of Marc Jacobs’ inspirations, for his own brand), Meadham Kirchhoff Spring/Summer 2007 (as part of Fashion East), Quail Spring/Summer 2009 (as part of Gen Art Fresh Faces), 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2013 (some shoes were named after Courtney Love, who inspired some pieces too).

Furthermore, Hedi Slimane photographed Courtney Love during her small tour, for the « Portrait Of A Performer : Courtney Love by Hedi Slimane » book, published by Visionaire Publishing, in 2007 ; Peaches Geldof featured, dressed Courtney Love-style, in the « People vs. Peaches Geldof » fashion shoot, photographed by Edouard Plongeon and styled by Anne Sophie Thomas, in the June 2009 issue of French « Jalouse » (from page 130 to page 140) ; in October 2012, Courtney Love revealed details of her clothing line, named Never The Bride (items repurposed from vintage clothes, influenced both by grunge and Victorian styles).

      Yes, Meadham Kirchhoff’s shows always stand out (and the James Pecis-styled hair always rock !). And you’re absolutely right about Courtney : she still has that extra special something !
