Kurt Cobain / Nirvana Custom Bikini
This black custom couture bikini is an original Colleen Kelly design, created as a tribute to the undisputed king of the 90s grunge movement, Kurt Cobain. It was made from an original fan tee from the era and combined with Fender guitar straps, blue/grey flannel shirt hip ties, and mother of pearl guitar pick accents. This suit is perfect onstage or in that rock and roll editorial shoot. It's a one of a kind collector's suit in size SMALL to MEDIUM.
This suit was used in the editorial shoot shown in the item's images. It was worn with full undergarments during the shoot and is perfectly clean. We have marked it down from $560 to the price shown.
Each one of these custom couture designs is unique and considered as a piece of artwork created by designer Colleen Kelly. The vintage materials and artistic elements that go into creating these one-of-a-kind "swimsuits" were assembled from original collector, art, and memorabilia sources around the globe. Colleen’s 25+ years of swimwear design experience, along with her seasoned talent in styling for the fashion industry, went into each piece. You will find a perfect blending of the vintage logos, embellishments, and graphics of the subject pop culture icons, bands, or artists featured in the design with the sexy, streamlined fitting requirements of the woman’s body. They aren’t "cheap" but they are more than worth the premium price for celebrities, artists, photographers, and customers that need a custom "styled" look to maintain their image.
Some of these items are rare and irreplaceable, which precludes them from being recreated in most cases, as only original items were used. The inherent value, and sometimes fragile nature, of these collector items makes it very difficult to manufacture more than one piece and prohibits us from offering returns, exchanges & etcetera, so all sales are final.
If you need another size than what is shown in the description and we do NOT have the materials on hand right now, we may still be able to source them for you. Please Contact Us and we will check to see if the materials can be made available to make one for you.
