Biebs isn’t only known for his ability to sing and dance on stage — he also has a very unique sense of style!
For Justin Bieber‘s tour, he enlisted Ronan to create a one-of-a-kind letterman jacket and sneakers — and luckily, similar styles will be available for purchase just in time for the holidays! We spoke to Andrea Bernholtz, co-founder of the brand, who told us all about what it was liking working on Bieber’s get-ups. Apparently, Selena Gomez can’t get enough of his signature style either!
“I mean he’s great, he’s a style icon and he’s fun to work with,” Andrea said. “We originally made the sneakers for him and when he was going on tour he needed some more things, so that’s when the letterman jacket came about.” Justin, who is a huge fan of the sneakers, has a dozen or two dozen pairs in different colors and styles for his tour.
The jacket may look effortlessly cool on the star, but a lot of work went into it! “It weighs a lot, since it has thousands and thousands of studs on it,” she said. “It was all hands on deck, we had a team of twelve working on it for a straight week.”
“It’s really cool to blend the classic style of the letterman jacket with his personal style and make it a little more edgy,” Andrea said.
So, what does Selena think of his style? She loves it! “Apparently he loved it so much when he tried it on he came out to show it to her [Selena] and she thought it was great.”
The Ronan team is also working on pants for Justin, but luckily for everyone who can’t get enough of his style, you can scoop up a similar, more wearable jacket (sans the JB initials) right around the holidays.
As for Justin, could we expect a designer collaboration in the works? Although they don’t have anything planned, the brand would be thrilled! “Oh yea, I mean he’s great,” Andrea said when we asked about a collaboration. “The way he has managed to evolve and stay true to his own style definitely sets him apart.”
We totally agree! Do you want to see Justin venture into design?
