John Malkovich, the Fashion Designer
John Malcovich and fashion designer may not be two things you expect to see in the same sentence. However, the world renowned actor has had a recent change in career path and decided to follow his life-long dream of being a clothing designer. This is not the first time Malkovich has tried his hand in the design world as he has two fashion lines under his name already, the first coming out in the early 2000’s and the second debuting in 2011.
His collection will be made available for purchase on his website and will consist of a Spring/Summer menswear collection that includes chino pants and silk scarves. Unlike most celebrity and designer collaborations’ where where the star’s name is simply stitched onto the clothing with all the work coming from the designer; all the designing will be done by himself from drawing the sketches to choosing material.
On his website he states that “fashion should be sincere because it’s rooted in self-expression. Fashion is about putting something together, and defining and transporting yourself. It’s about being bold and discreet at the same time. Above all, it’s about focusing on what you want and not worrying about what others expect you to be”.
And… That’s it!
