Not one to do things by halves, Justin Timberlake is pulling out all the stops for his new album release The 20/20 Experience as we’ve already seen with his annoucements and lyric video, and now he’s taking things a step further on the fashion side of things, too. The singer has enlisted designer Tom Ford to create and tailor accessories and other items to be featured in his new videos and artwork.
We’ve already seen some evidence of this collaboration in the cover work for the first single “Suit & Tie” which features a dapper tuxedo jacket with satin lapels and a bow tie, and also in the lyric video where a keen eye would have spotted Justin flashing a Tom Ford tie to the camera.
Ford has previously worked Timberlake as he had the prestigious job of designing the tuxedo to be worn at his wedding to Jessica Biel, and it looks like the two have a mutual admiration for each other as Ford gushed to WWD about the singer’s style.
“I adore Justin,” he says. “He has innate style and enormous talent. It has been such a pleasure and honor to work with him throughout this entire creative process.”
Looks like we’ll be getting some more suave fashion to come from these guys.
