Catching Up with Music, Movie and Fashion Superstar Justin Timberlake

100516_lwh_trolls_jt_william_rast-img001main

Music, film, fashion—we love when Justin Timberlake does just about anything. And we loved having him at Macy’s Herald Square last week where he promoted Dreamworks Trolls! In fact, we’re counting down the days until the film hits theaters on November 4! Not only is JT voicing one of the main characters, but he’s also the executive producer of the film’s incredible and star-studded soundtrack….

As if that didn’t keep the star busy enough, Justin is the co-founder of clothing brand WILLIAM RAST (along with childhood friend Trace Ayala), which just relaunched with a new collection of southern-inspired fall favorites. We got a preview of the new looks at Macy’s Front Row and all we can say is, “OBSESSED!” Below, Justin answers a few questions about the roots and inspiration behind his fashion brand, so be sure to check it out!

100516_lwh_trolls_jt_william_rast-mblog-chiclet-24px-hWhat can you tell us about the inspiration behind your clothing brand, WILLIAM RAST?

100516_lwh_trolls_jt_william_rast-jt-chiclet-24px-hTo talk about the brand you have to understand where we grew up. We grew up in Memphis with Nashville down the road, which is the cornerstone of country music. Memphis is the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll. It has to be a little bit country and a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll at the same time.

100516_lwh_trolls_jt_william_rast-mblog-chiclet-24px-hWhy is the brand named WILLIAM RAST?

100516_lwh_trolls_jt_william_rast-jt-chiclet-24px-hWe chose to name the brand after our grandfathers (William Bomar and John Rast), so it’s a big deal to us. The smallest little detail, like a rivet with our grandfathers names on it… that’s a crazy feeling to look at it!
