He was the man behind the dapper clothes in Justin Timberlake‘s “Suit & Tie” lyric video, he created JT’s SAG Awards look (left) and now Tom Ford is having a major hand in the design of the superstar’s upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience.
According to a release from the fashion house, the designer has signed on to collaborate with Timberlake to create “redefined style” for his new CD. The two men worked closely together to design eveningwear, suiting, shirts, ties, shoes and accessories that will “be a focal point” of the singer’s third solo project. So essentially, it sounds like Tom Ford is Timberlake’s new stylist. (And that Timberlake may be looking to expand his triple-threat portfolio to include modeling).
“I adore Justin. He has innate style and enormous talent,” Ford says in a statement. “It has been such a pleasure and honor to work with him throughout this creative process.”
We’re psyched to see how these two boy wonders of fashion and music put their heads together to come up with some amazing new style concepts. And though details are still limited about the partnership, one thing is for sure: You can expect to spot Timberlake in a lot more Tom Ford in the coming weeks. And we are totally okay with that. Tell us: Do you think Tom Ford and Timberlake make a good match?
