Robert Pattinson: Vampire (Actor), Model, and Now Fashion Designer
He’s really a jack of all trades. Aesthetically speaking.
For the last two years, I’ve been visiting producers and craftsmen. There’s already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills. 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…
WWD notes that the Twilight actor’s agent in London declined to comment on his fashion design aspirations and that right now it’s unknown as to whether “he aims to launch a full collection, or wholesale it” (if at all).
Pattinson, who’s also the face of Dior Homme, is of course not the first actor to make his foray into fashion. There’s Antonio Banderas, who enrolled in a short course at Central Saint Martins in London to learn about men’s tailoring; Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who co-founded brands like The Row, Elizabeth and James, and more affordable lines Olsenboye and StyleMint; and Kanye West of course, who’s trying to take over the world one Yeezy sneaker at a time.
