Morbid Streetwear: A New Line Inspired by Dead Musicians

Monday 20 July 2015

Appealing to everyone out there with a penchant for 90’s grunge and the tragic side of rock ‘n’ roll, you can now pay tribute to your favourite deceased musician with a range of new streetwear “garms”. The enigmatic online Pleasures initiative taps into memories of the past to create ‘wearable expressions’, as seen in their debut apparel/accessories drop ‘Pleasures V 1.0’.

In the collection, designed by Alex James, Kurt Cobain’s infamous suicide note has been reproduced in its entirety on jersey tees and outerwear shapes in black or white, along with cotton twill caps that simply bear the last sentence, ‘I LOVE YOU’. Alternatively, Ian Curtis fans can wear graphic T-shirts and powder pink nylon jackets. Most bizarrely, the RIP slogan ‘In Loving Memory – Morrissey 1959-2015’ is emblazoned on sporty hats (the guy’s not even dead yet!).

Fancy getting your hands on one of the designs? You ghoulish thing you. Head over to the Pleasures site to see the full collection.
