Justin Timberlake set to launch womenwear line
Next Fall you will be able to purchase a piece of Justin Timberlake! The singer is set launch women’s and men’s sportswear collections under his William Rast label. The clothing label has signed a deal with J. Lindeberg founders Johan and Marcella Lindeberg to branch out into womenswear via a new sportswear line. “I have always admired the modern designs and sophisticated aesthetics of Johan and Marcella Lindeberg,” the singer, who founded William Rast with childhood friend Trace Alaya in 2005, told WWD. “I am really excited that we have the chance to develop these strong collections together and that my vision for a complete William Rast lifestyle brand is in the hands of two of my most favorite designers.” The result will be a collection with a “sexy tomboy attitude,” with intricately constructed T-shirts, tailored jackets, high-waisted skirts and fitted pants. Men’s wear fabrics such as wool herringbone will be used to create the more feminine silhouettes. Prices haven’t been set but are expected to be in line with the denim, which wholesales between $90 and $100.
