Famed for capturing the most influential grunge bands of the '80s and '90s including Nirvana, Mudhoney and Pearl Jam, seminal photographer Charles Peterson and streetwear pioneers KR3W have teamed up to create the 'Rights Refused' collaboration. Take a look at this.

Peterson once said, "amidst the chaos of a live show, I wanted to find that sense of grace. I wanted people to experience what it was like being there; the sweat, the noise, being pushed against each other”. Moments captured by the photographer include Kurt Cobain's infamous stage dive in Seattle, 1990, as seen above.

Now appearing across a range of tees, wovens, cut and sew thanks to KR3W, Peterson's works tell their own story of a snapshot of time that changed the face of music forever. 

Rad stuff.

The KR3W x Charles Peterson collaboration is in store now, available at Slam City Skate and other select retailers.

KR3W x Charles Peterson Exhibition is open to the public for a limited time only. You can catch it at:
