WATCH: The Genius Behind Courtney Love’s Crazy Personal Wardrobe
Let’s give some credit where credit is due. Courtney Love is sort of a major fashion person — and, well, this is not a recent development. The singer has apparently been collecting clothing longer than she’s been ruining expensive real estate — longer, in fact, than some of us have been alive.
Our friends at Stylelist enlisted the help of model manager extraordinaire Scott Lipps to usher a tour of Love’s closet, which has pieces in it that date all the way back to the 1920s. Love says she’s been collecting clothing since the early 1980s, when she worked in the costume department at Paramount. Since then she’s amassed a huge wardrobe that touches every fashion house from Chloe to Marc Jacobs — and a few places we’ve never even heard of.
And that’s probably the coolest thing about Love’s collection: it comes from everywhere (on occasion, it’s stuff that she cut up and sewed back together herself) and makes no judgements or distinctions between things that are basically thrifted (read: stolen) and things that are couture. Take a look at her collection below.
