Justin Timberlake relaunching clothing line
Justin Timberlake is relaunching his clothing line.
The 'Suit & Tie' hitmaker and his business partner Trace Ayala have announced their Fall/Winter 2016 William Rast collection, and they are expanding as it will now be sold at several new national retailers including Macy's, Nordstrom, Dillard's, Belk, Bon-Ton, and Bloomingdale's.
The duo - who launched the label in 2005 - said: "William Rast has always been important to us because it represents where we began - our southern roots - and we are excited to show the world where it can go as we evolve the collection."
In a new promotional clip for the collection, Justin and Trace reflected on how their small-town upbringings influenced their style.
Justin said: "Nashville, right down the road is the cornerstone of country music, but Memphis is also the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock 'n' roll.
"It's gotta be a little bit country and it's gotta be a little bit rock 'n' roll at the same time."
And the 35-year-old singer also cited Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley as his major style influences because they were "guys that were just never really trying to be that, they just were that."
The collection has a strong country influence with garments including fringe skirts and patched distressed denim, while rock 'n' roll is shown in ripped black skinny jeans and embellished moto jackets.
