Janis Joplin’s niece is paying tribute to her style with Made for Pearl, a sportswear collection inspired and named for the late rocker.
Before Beyoncé had her Sasha Fierce alter ego, Joplin took on the persona of Pearl, (her posthumous album was also titled that) so Malyn thought it fitting for a company name. While the designer never met her aunt, who died of an overdose in 1970, she said she hears her referenced many times a day by relatives and strangers alike, as well as through her ties to the Janis Joplin Estate.
