See Every Piece from the Nasty Gal and Courtney Love Collaboration

Spoiler: there are babydoll dresses involved.

It didn't take long for news of the first fast fashion collaboration of 2016 to hit the web: just days after Christmas, nostalgia-loving retailer Nasty Gal announced that it had teamed up with Courtney Love on a collection due out on Jan. 14. Called "Love, Courtney by Nasty Gal," the range promises to provide shoppers with pieces inspired by the Hole frontwoman and pioneer of the grungy Kinderwhore aesthetic, or, as the label posted on its Instagram page, to "make all of your 90s fantasies come true."

On Monday night, Nasty Gal released the first preview images of the collection, modeled by blonde bombshell Hailey Clauson. Unsurprisingly, the clothing is characterized as "badass lingerie you can wear all day," and it certainly harkens back to the "Live Through This" era, when Miss Love became known for her ripped tights, babydoll dresses, hair barettes, wrinkled slips, Mary Janes and the like. (A look that's most recently been referenced by one Hedi Slimane, who looked to Love's late husband Kurt Cobain for inspiration at Saint Laurent as well.) A glance at the collection's landing page on the website also hints that mohair sweaters and puff-sleeved smock dresses will be available, too.

According to Vogue, the line will consist of 18 pieces and will range in price from $48 to $188. While much of Nasty Gal's clientele might not remember (or had been alive) when the "Doll Parts" video was in heavy rotation on MTV, we doubt that will stop them from scooping this collection up en masse when it's released next Thursday.

UPDATE: Images of the full product offering have arrived, and you can browse the entire collection in the gallery below.
