Stepping into the game of elegance is so exquisite!
The UK luxury department store, Selfridges, has become the first A-1 retailer to pick up Robbie Williams' fashion label, Farrell, and we couldn't be anymore happier for him.
Selfridges' men's contemporary buyer, Reece Crisp talks about Robbie's range:
"Farrell has a very clear brand ethos in its focus on a heritage look, which is executed well. The inclusion of both casual and more tailored pieces make it a great lifestyle brand. Our contemporary menswear business is growing all the time and we're always on the lookout for collections which offer something different - be that a well-known ambassador, an exclusive collaboration or an emerging label. Our British labels are performing incredibly well this season, Barbour being a great example, and we're pleased to introduce Farrell which is very much in the same vein."
Last year, the Take That singer announced that he was inspired by his late grandfather's gear, Jack Farrell, which led to the life of his label.
Then in 2011, Mr. Williams selected former Burberry design director, Ben Dickens to head his designs for his autumn/winter 2012-13 military-inspired line.
Crisp added on about the star's collection:
"The real strength of this collection lies in the outerwear - the coats are especially strong and really well-cut. We're expecting great sell-through on the trenches, pea coats and quilted jackets. Three pieces have been designed for us exclusively, including a double-breasted camel overcoat which is my favourite piece from the line."
Sounds like the collection is going to captivate an abundance of stylish individuals.
Now we're just going to have to patiently wait to get a peek at the garb!
