Muse of the Moment – Kurt Cobain

by Fluffleberry on October 18, 2012

I was a teenager in the 90’s and have been grungy ever since, although now I prefer to rock a modern, more luxurious take, (I think we can all agree that Phillip Lim showed us all how to do it this season). Never the less I like to look back each season and take inspiration from icons of the past, and one that is very close to my heart is Kurt Cobain.

Kurt Cobain personified the era of grunge. His music and his image were painful and romantic and it spoke to my teen aged self. I fell in love and it seemed to me that his drug addiction and tragic suicide were a result of the burden of his genius and his deep sensitivity. Whatever the reason he remains in my memory as his 27 year old tortured and beautiful self and I am still heavily influenced by his innate style. The grungy, nonchalant, rebellious, heroin chic of the 90’s that he wore so well lives on in my heart and on the catwalks this season.
