We remember the Nirvana frontman on the anniversary of his death

Nineteen years after his death, Kurt Cobain's influence on fashion has never been stronger. For Fall 2013, Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent presented an entire collection inspired by the musician, with distressed jeans, loose cardigans, and plaid galore. Back in the '90s, Cobain single-handedly triggered the grunge movement, as hordes of Nirvana fans raided thrift stores to emulate the frontman's style. A shy boy at heart, Cobain not only used music as an outlet to express his frustration, he also translated his distaste for societal convention through his rebellious dress sense.

Striped Crew Neck T-Shirt by Uniqlo, $5.90. Distressed Skinny Jeans by 7 For All Mankind, $218. Bomber Cardigan by Topman, $100. Low-Top Chuck Taylor All Stars Sneakers by Converse, $50.
