“I think a strong, masculine guy can have soft qualities as well,” he told PEOPLE recently at the WWE and Creative Coalition’s Be a STAR event in L.A. “My line is not the girly-girl line. It’s a comfortable line for guys, and that’s how I live my life. I want to be comfortable. I can still be tough. I can still run.”
To find inspiration for the collection, which hits Nordstrom stores soon, Lutz went straight to his own closet. “Every decision came through me,” he said. “All of the designs, we raided my closet, stuff like that. I know exactly what kinds of comfortable clothes I like, so it’s all about the fine linens, knits, tops.”
And it looks like his creations are becoming quite popular with his friends and fellow Twilight-ers — in fact, costar Ashley Greene already steals his clothes! “She always does,” he said. But it’s not a problem. “I think girls who rock guy’s clothes are cute,” he continued. “See-through jerseys. Yes!”
Lutz may be the first of the Twilight cast to delve into design, but he said other co-stars may soon follow in his fashionable footsteps. “[Robert Pattinson] and I were talking about doing clothing lines,” said Lutz. “He didn’t know I was doing mine. He was like, ‘I should do one,’ and then he found out I was doing one and he was like, ‘Really?’ He wants to do one too.” Perhaps vampire chic is the next hot trend?
