Justin Timberlake Still A Part of Clothing Brand
Justin Timberlake has further defied reports he ditched clothing label William Rast last year by being involved in the brand’s AW14 line.
The singer and actor remains as the brand’s co-founder, alongside childhood friend Trace Ayala, despite claims he severed ties due to falling sales, which he went on to say were untrue.
Slim cut denim and other casual pieces including plaid shirts, bomber jackets, shirts and semi-constructed and deconstructed blazers make up the latest collection.
Inspiration comes from the tailored style of the Rat Pack, a famous group of actors and musicians, such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr, which rose to fame in the 1960s.
Colours have been kept simple and classic, with navies and blacks as well as hints of reds and burgundies.
To update the look, William Rast has chosen London-based, tattooed model Stephen James to front the new season.
Completing the AW14 range is a line of accessories made up of knitted beanies and baker boy caps.
Launched in 2005, the label uses a combination of both founders’ grandfather’s names.
Prices for the collection, which will be available to buy from www.usc.co.uk at the end of this month, range from £25 for T-shirts, to £50 for shirts, £65 for denim, and £100 for jackets.
