UK: Ronnie Wood rolls out Liberty fashion line
Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood is teaming up with British store Liberty of London to launch a clothing line featuring prints inspired by some of his artworks.
The musician and acclaimed artist will collaborate with Liberty's creative director Tamara Salman, who has created a collection of men's and women's ready-to-wear, shoppers, clutches, travel holdalls and purses.
Based on Wood's colour palette, Salman has designed a range of stretch cotton shift dresses, jersey batwing dresses, racer-back dresses, cashmere scarves and foiled or pigmented T-shirt dresses in purples, sky blue, crimson red, oranges and greens against a black or white background.
For men, there are T-shirts and cotton shirts quoting Ronnie Wood in graffiti.
Due to be released in autumn/winter 09, the 'Ronnie Wood for Liberty of London' line continues a tradition of artistic collaborations, established by Liberty's founder, Arthur Liberty, in the nineteenth century.
Wood said: "It's inspiring for me to work with such a prestigious British company that has, in the last century, worked with amazing talents such as William Morris and A Knox - so I'm very excited to have completed my first collection with them."
