It seems that former Rolling Stone turned artist Ronnie Wood may have a bit more room left on his resume. The rocker recently announced that he will be designing an apparel and accessories line in a collaboration with British retailer Liberty of London. The collection, aptly named Ronnie Wood for Liberty of London, is set to debut in the fall and will feature accessories such as travel holdalls and clutches, and clothing including jersey dresses for women and cotton T-shirts for me. Many of the designs will fuse Wood's other creative ventures by showcasing images taken from Wood’s paintings, reworked into prints by Liberty of London’s creative director Tamara Salman. Some of the men’s t-shirts will also be printed with choice quotations from Wood’s career, styled in a graffiti font.
Wood was seemingly impressed with the online retailer's former collaborative projects with creative personalities including William Morris, Archibald Knox and Bernard Nevill."I wanted to work with Liberty of London because of the great tradition that Liberty has of artistic collaborations," Wood explained. His line is scheduled to hit Liberty’s flagship store on London’s Regent Street in October and retail prices will range from 175 pounds, or $288, for a t-shirt through to 2,000 pounds, or $3,300 for a hand painted leather holdall. For a $300 graffiti t-shirt, let's just hope they remember to take out the expletives!
