RONNIE WOOD TAKES LIBERTY: Another unexpected celebrity has thrown their hat into the fashion ring. This time, Rolling Stone turned fine artist Ronnie Wood is collaborating with Liberty of London to create a collection of clothing and accessories called Ronnie Wood for Liberty of London. The collection, which will launch for fall, includes accessories such as travel holdalls and clutches through to jersey dresses for women and cotton T-shirts for men, all of which will feature 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, written in a graffiti font. “I wanted to work with Liberty of London because of the great tradition that Liberty has of artistic collaborations,” said Wood, referring to the store’s historic partnerships with artists such as William Morris, Archibald Knox and Bernard Nevill. Wood’s line will 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. The collection will also be sold at wholesale from this week onwards.
