No you haven’t got it wrong, and there’s not two Robert Pattinsons! We’re talking about that same one, yes that’s right, the heartthrob from Twilight is making his way into the fashion industry. Having accepted a lucrative contract with Dior, the actor has been designing a womenswear and menswear clothing line! So it’s safe to say that Robert’s creativity and talent is not limited to acting, branching out into the creative field of fashion design!
In an interview with Numéro magazine he confessed that he’s started making clothes; visiting producers and craftsmen for the last two years (we wondered where he went, sneaky)!
Feeling inspired by the cities he’s visited, sourcing fabrics and local skills, he mentions two of the locations his upcoming collection is most definitely influenced by, the actor said that “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.”
His passion and enthusiasm for fashion design and his line is clear as he can’t hold back his excitement, letting slip that there are already quite a few pieces, followed by him stating that it’s something he loves doing! In the meantime, Pattinson who is the face of Dior Homme fragrance is expanding his collaboration within the brand, being part of the Dior’s fashion ads. Not letting his passion for fashion design consume all his time and get in the way of his acting, he has a few projects lined up with French director Claire Denis and filmmaker Harmony Korine.
We’re intrigued and can’t wait to see what Robert has come up with! If his dapper and sharp dress sense is anything to go by we’ll definitely love it!
