Golden Globe winning actor Idris Elba (The Wire, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom) has teamed with Superdry to create a premium men’s collection for Fall/Winter 2015. The 250 piece collection includes cashmere knitwear, tailored wool coats, tailored shirting, sportswear, denim, and premium outerwear.
The Idris Elba + Superdry line will be be available at selected Superdrystores, department stories, and online in the UK and the U.S. starting November 2015.
The collection is designed by Elba along with Superdry co-founders James Holder and Julian Dunkerton. Elba says the following regarding his menswear line:
“I like to look and feel great in what I wear and, like Superdry, quality and fit are important to me. Having the opportunity to collaborate on a clothing range has been an amazing experience, and I’m confident that my personal style combined with Superdry’s entrepreneurial spirit will be one to watch!”
Along with fashion, music, and acting, Elba is also setting his sights on filmmaking. At the No Good Deed press junket, I asked him about what elements of directing he prefers the most. Check out the Soundcloud media bar below:
