In scouring over Style.com to put together this post, I became o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d with up-and-coming design compnay, William Rast. Designed by Justin Timberlake, and his best friend Trace Ayala, William Rast is a company that features down-home vibes, but still a rock-star attitude. Perfect for the girl-next-door who's a little bit edgy. Featuring amazing jackets, denim, vests, and flirty dresses, the women's line has something for an girl who's an all-American girl at heart, but lives in a sophisticated, fashion forward concrete jungle . The men's line also features slim cut denim, leather jackets, casual and dress shirts, and blazers. Considering Justin Timberlake is one of the best-dresses male celebrities [in my opinion], I expected nothing less from his menswear, and was pleasantly surprised by his womenswear. It's really refreshing to see a "celebrity designer" who's clothes aren't just a gimmicky, over-priced, simply designed, and flashing the "celebrity" all over the label. I'm interested and excited to see future collections and see how this brand grows.
Here are my favorite William Rast looks:
