Take That have had some ‘interesting’ outfits and looks over the years which have been questionable, but since their reunion in 2007 the band have got it just right. Although he hasn’t been there all of the time, Robbie Williams has gelled with the recent style of his (ex) bandmates and embraced modern menswear.
Last summer he announced that he would be launching a menswear collection named ‘Farrell’ after his late grandfather, and would take direct inspiration from his ‘british gent’ style. “I like that it was important to him to look smart, it’s something I have carried with me throughout my life.”
Williams has the former Burberry design director, Ben Dickens on board as head of design. His experience with the british heritage brand shines through his newest project with touches of military styled blazers, trench coats and quilted jackets.
The strong, tailored collection has been snapped up by luxury fashion department store, Selfridges who have strong belief that the collection will do well. Although the design isn’t ground-breakingly new there are elements of the collection that hasn’t been celebrated that much in menswear. It is refreshing to see a balance of sexy, smart, casual and relaxed all in one well executed menswear campaign.
Boys, take notes. Us girls like this look!
