William Rast - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) A true maverick in the singer-goes-designer trajectory, Justin Timberlake and childhood friend Trace Ayala's collection drew an impressive crowd of celebufriends--and an even more impressive bevy of fashion insiders (both Anna and Carine were in attendance), whose smiley backstage photos suggest that a large part of the fascination for William Rast extends beyond the actual clothing. Rast's fall collection appeased both the fashion-interested and the fashion die-hards. Leather jackets, distressed denim, fringed accessories and plaid separates could hop right off the runway and onto the streets, but the sculptural jackets, space-cadet tanks and chic fur pieces could just as easily slink right into the glossiest of editorials.
