Tinie Tempah’s new “Disturbing London” fashion range and other notable celebrity lines

By Gerald Lynch on April 19th, 2012

The ever-dapper Tine Tempah has been on the press offensive this week after launching his own clothing line, the Disturbing London range, exclusively for Selfridges.

A collaboration with streetwear label MH1, the GQ Best Dressed Man of 2012 will also be the face of the upcoming London Menswear Week in June.

“At the end of the day, I’m a 23-year-old male from inner city London. Of course I’m into tailoring – but in the right circumstances: swanky events, awards or fashion shows,” Tempah told The Telegraph.

“I want [the collection] to show the different layers of what makes me who I am. I thought it would be good to do something that was high-end streetwear, based around the whole Americana storm that is happening now.”

But Tine Tempah is not the first celebrity to launch a fashion line. Far from it in fact; from sports stars to popstars, many have dabbled with a needle and thread over the years (or at least gave the blessing to have their name attached to a project by those that do all the hard work).

Just this week Mancherster City’s Joleon Lescott launched his own fashion line, with a star-studded event that saw team-mates Yaya Toure, Nigel De Jong, James Milner Micah Richards and Adam Johnson checking out his threads.

In the pop world, having your own fashion line is just as common an occurrence as putting out your next album.

Rapper Sean John Combs (AKA Puff Daddy AKA P. Diddy AKA Diddy AKA Swag AKA…) also launched a line back in 1998. Sean John Inc. sold men’s shirts, jackets and trousers. The star has also invested heavily in other fashion brands, including couture label Zac Posen. He also bought Enyce from Liz Claiborne.

Mr Beyonce himself, Jay-Z, has had great success in the fashion industry. Based on his own “street-style”, the star’s Rocawear brand has brought in annual sales of over $700 million.

Justin Timberlake brought sexy back with his Willam Rast clothing line in 2006, working alongside childhood friend Trace Ayala. It was a denim-heavy line. Timberlake also designed a small collection for Target in 2010.

Outspoken Kanye West took a slightly different tact by launching a line aimed at ladies. A big fashion fan, Kanye has worked with Fendi and Louis Vuitton, and has often spoken of his admiration for designers Riccardo Tisci and Raf Simons. For his début line he enlisted the help of Brit designer Katie Eary.

WISHLIST: River Island Marvel Cap

By Will Reid on May 14th, 2008

riverislandmarvel.jpgNow I know for a fact that I wasn’t the only one disappointed with Met Gala-attending celebrities lack of Superhero costume inspiration. In fact, Zac Posen was the only attendee who matched up to my high standards of fancy-dress. Therefore, I was delighted when I came across this River Island cap with Marvel Comic decoration (Persil, Armani, River Island- what isn’t Marvel on at the moment!) The only River Island I have ever entered outside the realm of cyber-space was in Fife, Scotland and the fact that the staff could collectively set up a tattoo and piercing parlour helped me to never return. Add to this that I was once told I don’t have a “hat-face,” I was understandably cautious of putting this on my WISHLIST. No longer shall I worry as this cap has enough Wham! Zap! Pow! to last me at least another month of pretending I could wear it.

Marvel Cap, £12.99, River Island

Met Institute Costume Gala 2008: Jack White & Karen Elson, Ashley Olsen & Christian Louboutin and Zac Posen & Kate Mara

By admin on May 6th, 2008

A slightly uncle Fester-esque Jack White turned up with spouse Karen Elson, who looked like a woman from a Rossetti painting with her pale skin, burgundy dress and ginger hair. Despite White’s slightly corpse-like appearance I think he looked good in his white three-button waistcoat.

Christian Louboutin went to the other end of the spectrum with an attention-grabbing badge and I have to say I love Ashley Olsen’s new look. Speaking of attention-grabbing, check out Zac Posen’s outfit after the jump.
