WHEN JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE brings his Man of the Woods tour to Infinite Energy Center in Duluth on May 11, he’ll be wearing Stella McCartney’s clothes.
Timberlake wore a custom-made McCartney design in February, when he performed at halftime of the Super Bowl; they then collaborated on his wardrobe for this tour. The tour began in mid-March in Toronto and includes more than 100 dates in North America and Europe over the next 10 months. It returns to metro Atlanta, to Philips Arena, on Jan. 29, 2019.
The singer will mix and match favorite pieces from the Stella McCartney Menswear Autumn/Winter 2018 collection with customized designs and pieces from his own wardrobe. Key styles include camo-splattered Prince of Wales check bomber jackets, trench coats and combat trousers teamed with wildlife prints, retro-inspired chevron tracksuits and signature McCartney tailoring on flannel fabrics.
Timberlake’s wardrobe features sustainable elements that are part of McCartney’s core philosophy, which emphasizes organic cotton and repurposed fabrics.
“Justin has such innate style,” McCartney says, “and he embodies our menswear collection in many ways.”
Man of the Woods, Timberlake’s fifth studio album, was released Feb. 2. It’s named after his son Silas, whose name means “man of the forest.” The album debuted atop the U.S. Billboard 200; two singles, “Filthy” and “Say Something,” both reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
