Antonio Banderas has unveiled his first-ever clothing collection, which will be created in collaboration with Danish design label, Selected Homme. Actor and film producer who currently studying fashion at Central Saint Martins in London believes that this fashion collection is a true reflection of his personality. “As an actor, I’ve been close to fashion and the idea of taking clothes to create a personality. Whether it’s in front of a camera or onstage, set in the past or something contemporary, clothes very much take part in the creation of an identity, and that’s something that I have always understood pretty clearly,” Banderas said, according to a press release.
The fall collection is divided into three stages that reflect his life: vintage, indigo and tailoring. “In the morning, I wear jeans, something comfortable, sneakers, a T-shirt and maybe a leather jacket, and I go out,” said Banderas. “If I have meetings, I want to go a little bit more elegant so I wear chinos, a blazer to have a meeting with the producer, or a cocktail. At night I have to go on the red carpet, so I’d like to use a tuxedo obviously or a black suit.”
The Antonio Banderas Design by Selected Homme is a 30-piece range that includes black motorcycle jackets, a leather bomber jacket, overcoats, wool-blend blazers, trousers, chinos, jeans, shirts, cashmere knit cardigans and a vest. Prices range from 18 pounds, or $26, for a T-shirt to 330 pounds, or $485, for a black biker jacket. The collection will be sold into retailers globally beginning in January, and then it will be available for consumer purchases come August.
