He might be known as one of Hollywood’s more eccentric dressers, but David Arquette is about to launch a signature line of clothing that’s showing off a whole new side of himself. PEOPLE caught up with the new designer who dished about his clothing line Propr, produced in partnership with one of the founders of preppy favorite Penguin. As for which side of the preppy/eccentric divide Propr falls on, David says, “It isn’t conservative, but it wouldn’t be like what you’d expect out of me — crazy dresser. But, you know, it’s somewhat conservative clothing but it’s got a sort of vintage twist to it that you can sort of mix and match to sort of represent your own style.” So far Arquette has only shown off his wears during a sneak peek at N.Y.C. fashion week (attended by famous friends Jennifer Aniston and Laura Dern), but he’s planning a blow-out launch event in his native L.A. And what does his famous wife, Courteney Cox Arquette think about the designs? “She’s had tons of input,” he says. “We went into her closet, and [I] asked her about the clothes that she loves.” And then, proving that he’ll never completely abandon his flair for whimsy, he adds, “We found a spider in her closet and took a picture of it and put it on some shirts.”
