Justin Timberlake: William Rast
Pop music icon/actor Justin Timberlake and his best friend, Trace Ayala, dressed up or dressed down, define class, comfort, and style that fuses the urban glamour of Hollywood with nuances from their Southern country upbringing. Together they design the threads to match, and deliver a brand that infuses the soul of authentic Southern heritage with the energy of contemporary Hollywood. Inspired by Dixieland, William Rast is a testament to Justin and Trace’s Tennessee roots; «William» is the first name of Timberlake’s grandfather and «Rast» the last of Trace Ayala’s. William Rast allows the wearer to go confidently from casual to cosmopolitan. It is perfect for the man on the go or the starlet out on the town. It is fashion minus the pretense. The collection currently consists of denim and T-shirts. In collaboration with Johan and Marcella Lindeberg, a full men and women’s collection will debut in the fall of 2008. William Rast is a brand beyond celebrity; delivering quality, detail, design, and comfort and making a clear statement that rock n’ roll sex appeal and modern sensuality are always in style.
