Robert Pattinson has come a long way since his teen heartthrob Twilight days. The 29-year-old actor ditched queen of the ‘bitchy resting face’ Kristen Stewart for edgy singer-songwriter FKA Twigs, turned up at a red carpet event donning a drastic undercut, and has been raising the style stakes ever since.
Now, the actor is channelling his inner Kanye and turning to a career in fashion. In a recent interview with Numéro, Pattinson was asked if he had thought about writing or directing. He casually fobbed off that question and revealed he was a fashion designer instead.
“I’ve started making clothes. For the last two years, I’ve been visiting producers and craftsmen. There’s already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills. In Los Angeles, it’s really easy to work with denim and do workwear inspired clothes. In England, I look more towards wool and knitwear. What I do is pretty multifaceted, clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends…But I’m not going into too much detail, I don’t want to jinx anything…” he told the magazine.
We can only imagine what Rob’s fashion line will look like, but we’re guessing it will be a little “dishevelled with a side of unwashed hair.”
