The Jam’s Paul Weller Designs For Liam Gallagher’s Label
Former [lastfm]Jam[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Paul Weller[/lastfm] has reportedly teamed up with [lastfm]Liam Gallagher [/lastfm]to offer a few designs to the former [lastfm]Oasis[/lastfm] singer’s clothing label, Pretty Green. In a recent interview with Spinner.com, Weller explained that his designs were meant to fit into a day-to-day wardrobe.
“Nick [Holland], Pretty Green’s creative director, measured me up and it turned out top. It’s double-breasted, grey with a chalk stripe. Almost like a gangster suit, but with a little kick to the trousers,” he said.
“I’ve got designs for suits, jackets, shoes — I’ve been talking to Liam about them,” Weller added. “It’s the same principle as what he’s doing, really — stuff I’d wear myself. I certainly admire [Gallagher's] Northern style; I’ve got a fantastic white Parka from Pretty Green. Mind you, up there they have to wear big coats, being so cold.”
Weller’s latest album, Wake Up The Nation, came out on April 19 and peaked at number 2 on the U.K. chart.
