Justin Bieber may be the current face, (and bod!), of Calvin Klein, but he has his sights set on designing his very own line — and Kanye West’s foray into fashion has totally inspired the singer to follow his dreams.
With a major fashion campaign, a huge summer hit and new music on the horizon, Justin Bieber is totally dominating the charts and billboards — but he doesn’t plan on stopping there! The 21-year-old also wants to design his very own fashion line — and he told our sister publication, WWD, that Kanye West inspired him to take his time creating his very own line.
Justin told WWD that he was interested in creating a line in 2011 — and it definitely wasn’t a fleeting thought. “I haven’t lost that passion. It’s just such a big deal….I just want to make sure it’s perfect and right and take my time with it. I know Kanye [West] has been working on his stuff for years and failed and came back and tried again and failed. It’s about trial and error and I don’t know if I’m ready for that yet,” he told the mag. “Fashion’s definitely really important, but I got to make sure I’m ready for the failing part of it because I know that comes with it. It’s not easy. It’s not like putting out an album.”
While he may not be ready to unveil his designs, he is embracing the fashion cred that came along with his Calvin Klein campaign. “Just being recognized by the fashion world in such a way so far has been awesome,” he said. “I’m excited to venture into a new lane….Really new and something I’ve always really liked, but now I’m just moving forward into that direction.”
Justin grew up in front of the spotlight — and his style has gone through so many different phases. He describes the looks he’s currently loving, listing Calvin Klein, Balmain and Fear of God as his favorite labels and said he’s “really into, like, drapy things, drapy sweaters, layering pieces.”
We can’t get enough of Justin’s latest looks and are excited for him to one day launch his own line. Will you wear his clothes?
