Idris Elba has always had sense of style

Idris Elba believes he has "always had a sense of style."

The 43-year-old actor was inspired by his father to experiment with fashion from a young age and has thinks growing up in London allowed him to explore various trends.

He explained: "I have always had a sense of style - I grew up in East London, and loved all the trends you would see on the streets there.

"It helped that my dad was really into clothes, too."

The 'Luther' star has teamed up with Superdry to launch a new collection and he's confident his pieces will make any man feel "great" and encourage them to "mix and match."

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, he said of what makes a well-dressed man: "Someone who has his own flair, style and confidence. A man who isn't afraid to mix and match. My Superdry collection is diverse, and aimed at men who like to feel great in what they wear."

Meanwhile, Idris' Superdry collection will launch this Thursday (26.11.15) at Superdry International in London.

The line will also be available at premium Superdry stores and online from the same day.
