Jay Z may have recorded the high-end fashion tune “Tom Ford,” but his former tour mate Justin Timberlake will wear the designer himself for his 20/20 Experience World Tour, which began Wednesday, November 6 in Brooklyn.
According to Fashonista.com, JT will kick off his outing in style with a massive collection of 600 individual pieces for the tour, including eight different outfits for the singer as well as original looks for his backup dancers, band members and vocalists.
“Justin has great personal style and knows what he wants which makes designing for him an absolute pleasure,” Fashionista quotes Ford as saying. “He is a tremendous talent and has a kind of effortless cool that makes classic menswear tailoring modern.”
This isn’t the first time the luxury designer has worked with Timberlake, he previously customized suits for the “Suit And Tie” video and for Justin’s album packaging, as well as for his appearances at the 2013 Grammys and the BET Awards.
As previously reported, Justin will perform 69 shows across North America and Europe to promote his latest album, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
