Über-glum singer Avril Lavigne has announced plans to release a collection of clothing for US retailer Kohl's. Abbey Dawn is named after Lavigne's childhood nickname and will hit the stores in time for back-to-school in July.

The collection is made up of pieces inspired from Avril's own wardrobe and she'll be wearing them on her latest tour. WWD said the collection will be made up of: "Reggae and skater styles, traditional tartan plaids, checks and stripes, as well as bold colors and mix-and-match prints". My only question is that is anyone still interested in the nu-metal look?
