So now we know what Justin Timberlake was hinting at when he sang his latest single, "Suit & Tie." The singer has joined hands with ace designer and industry giant Tom Ford to create a line of menswear.
Clearly Ford is very pleased with this alliance and has even created a collection of suits for Timberlake's latest number and also styled the video. "I adore Justin. He has innate style and enormous talent," nydailynews.com quoted the designer.
Timberlake is seen looking impeccable in the video and the suits, ties, glasses, cufflinks and pocket squares are all from the Tom Ford label. The collection by the duo will include a number of suits and ties as well as shirts, loafers and cufflinks.
The former Gucci head also created the artwork of the album, which shows a close up shot of the singer's tuxedo and bow tie. Thanks to its sultry mood where the newlywed singer is seen dressed dapper, driving around and smoking while sitting at the piano, the album reminds one more of an ad for a fashion line than an album.
"Ford worked closely with Timberlake and his team to provide made-to-measure tailoring, including evening wear, suiting, shirting, ties, shoes and accessories that will be a focal point of the the 20/20 Experience," Hollywood Reporter quoted the official announcement.
And Timberlake obviously reciprocates Ford's adoration as he has been a patron of the designer for quite some time now. The "Cry Me a River" hit maker's wedding suit too was designed by the American designer with ideas and contribution from the groom himself.
Timberlake also attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards dressed in a brown plaid suit by Tom Ford which made him one of the best dressed stars of the event.
