The estate of the late Kurt Cobain has launched “Kurt Was Here,” an official clothing line commemorating the Nirvana frontman. Curated by daughter Frances Bean Cobain, the apparel collection features over 50 unisex garments utilizing the iconic musician’s original artwork and personal journal entries. All the sketches, paintings and hand-written designs are taken directly from Cobain, and that the motifs haven’t been edited or resized on the pieces.

“We believe that the importance of art is exceedingly potent in today’s social and political climate,” a representative tells Rolling Stone via email, “and that it is the right time to share this collection of Kurt’s work with artists, collectors and fans, allowing them to experience Kurt’s legacy in a new way, and collectively celebrate his lasting impact on the world.”

On top of his success as a musician, Cobain has been the subject of many fashion pieces over the years, ranging from fast fashion brands like Forever 21 to Vetements. This collection, however, stands out with the estate’s direct involvement and use of the singer’s personal archive of work.

The “Kurt Was Here” collection is a partnership between The End of Music, LLC and Live Nation Merchandise, and can be found at Barneys, Selfridges and on KurtCobainShop.com. A portion of the sales will be donated to the Jed Foundation, a non-profit focused on suicide prevention among teens and young adults.

In related news, Cobain’s $26.57 USD royalty check was recently found in a Seattle record shop.
