From the man who gave us skin-tight lycra and Kiss-inspired make up in ‘Let Me Entertain You’, Robbie Williams has moved on to menswear, cultivating a label and burgeoning brand that represents the new Robbie most perfectly (having undergone his miraculous life change over the past few years – a combination of maturity, ambition and the love of a good woman). Accompanied by his Head of Design, Ben Dickens, formerly of Burberry, both have laid a solid foundation with their collection of high-end classic menswear with a twist, in what I hope is a successful endeavour for Mr Williams. It goes without saying that I’m usually dubious of artists-turned-designers. It’s early days yet but so far, Robbie carries off his new role with aplomb, initiative and his quintessential cheek, with his influence abundantly clear in their AW12 campaign.
