Joining the long list of celebrities that have created their own clothing is none other than … actor Robert Pattinson?
Coming as a surprise to all his fans, the “Twilight” star announced on Tuesday (March 8) that he is in the midst of creating his own fashion brand, and that he’s been quietly working on this endeavor for quite some time.
In an interview with Numero, Pattinson says, “For the last two years, I’ve been visiting producers and craftsmen. There’s already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills. In Los Angeles, it’s really easy to work with denim and do workwear-inspired clothes. In England I look more towards wool and knitwear. What I do is pretty multifaceted, clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends … But I’m not going into too much detail, I don’t want to jinx anything.”
If the idea of Pattinson designing clothes makes you nervous, it’s reassuring to know he’s gained experience by collaborating with Dior Homme fragrance director Romain Gavras, whom the actor has served as the muse for since 2013.
Their partnership will be “extending to clothes starting this year,” Pattinson says. “The first campaign comes out in April. I just feel super relaxed in that atmosphere, there’s nothing corporate about it.”
