Inspiring Style: JT Does Tar-Jay

And the hits keep coming. Following in the footsteps of greats like Rodarte, Gaultier and Zac Posen to name a few, Justin Timberlake is set to release a line for Target from his William Rast collection.

The collection is slated to be released December 19--just in time for the holidays. As far as I know, many people really like JT. He can sing; he can dance; he's not a bad actor; and he's super hilarious. I know everyone's seen his numerous SNL skits. And he'll be in a few movies in the next couple of years, including that little Facebook movie next month.

The Social Network

But back to the fashion: I think he's a good dresser, but I haven't really seen much of his William Rast line. The William Rast line for Target will feature denim, outerwear and sportswear for both men and women. It'll probably include a lot of leather jackets, tailored blazers, and everything from skinny to flared denim.

These photos are taken from previous collections as there aren't any photos of the WR for Target line just yet. I am hearing that it may be a bit pricey for Target though, but I guess we'll just have to wait a few more months to find out.

So what do you think of this collaboration? Will you be interested? How do you feel about celebrities becoming fashion designers?

And have you seen the H&M fall 2010 collection? Here are some pieces.

I've never really been a fan of the celebrity = fashion designer dealio. I get that it's good publicity and yadda yadda but REALLY. (But there have been exception: Mary Kate and Ashley, Sienna Miller, even Victoria Beckham.) JT? HMMM. We'll have to see how the cookie crumbles! Go with the flow! Yeah, you get the idea... ;)

Ahh I'm absolutely in love with H&M. I have a ton of clothing from there, it's definitely one of my favorite stores. ^_^

I think celebrities becoming fashion designers isn't a bad thing at all. I mean, apart from singing and dancing and acting, they're also able to create and do things that in a way give back to their fans/community, whether it's providing wonderful new fashion and styles or doing community service.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE! first tequila then clothing, nice. and as much as I don't want to see that facebook movie, it actually looks decent...

Kristie said...

That's an awesome idea. I love H&M but the latest fashion is a bit matronly to me.

Miss*Kimmy said...

How interesting! Had no idea about any of this .. I think its awesome his line will be available to more people, at Target. I don't have probs with JT, in fact I've never really heard anyone say a bad thing about the guy .. Hope all is well, Cheryl!
