Kurt Cobain by Jesse Frohman



ONETSHIRT has teamed up with New York based photographer Jesse Frohman to create a unique capsule collection with his iconic shots of rock legend Kurt Cobain. 

In July 1993, Nirvana was the biggest band in the country, and Kurt Cobain was subject to an unprecedented, unasked-for level of fame and public scrutiny. In New York City to play the Roseland Ballroom and promote their new album In Utero, Nirvana consented to be photographed by Jesse Frohman - and Cobain gave a candid interview to punk historian Jon Savage - for an article in the London Observer. It was one of the last photo shoots Nirvana ever did, and among the last interviews Cobain ever gave.

Frohman's insightful portraiture transcends the nature of celebrity photography. The pictures are as humanizing as they are glorifying. Cobain appears as a goofily provocative rebel, with his vintage air force cap, Jackie O. sunglasses, and leopard jacket.

The collection presents four of these stunning portraits and will be available in November exclusively at Colette, Paris.


The capsule collection features the classic ONETSHIRT regular fit, available for both men and women. Fabric is a high-quality 100% cotton, special dash sewing and embroidered “2 dots” logo on the front. Sizes for men: S, M, L, XL. Sizes for women: XS, S, M, L. Digital printed in Italy.
