What's Next for Nick Wooster? His Own Line at Lardini

"By no means do I think I'm a designer."

Nick Wooster (pictured above), the ever-evolving former men's fashion director for Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, has a new venture: He's collaborating with the Italian suiting brand Lardinito create his own line of menswear.

After joining the company as a consultant, the street-style star was asked to create "small capsule that would summarize my style," and he was happy to oblige.

"By no means do I think I'm a designer like Rick Owens or Thom Browne, but I'm a retailer and somewhat of an editor," he told WWD.

The collection is due out next spring, and will comprise 12 to 15 looks focused mainly on tailored clothing with a few sportswear elements mixed in. Wooster describes it as his "take on what's interesting out there." Lardini is perhaps best known for manufacturing men's tailoring for Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Valentino, Etro and Burberry.

Of course this isn't the first time Wooster has linked arms with a brand. Last year he did a capsule collection of camouflage accessories with Want Les Essentiels de la Vie. And the year before that he worked on a clutch bag with Parabellum and swimming trunks with Orlebar Brown.

It comes as no surprise that so many brands turn to Wooster for a style refresher. After all, he's one of a small handful of menswear industry icons who isn't a designer. And he's always down to shake things up.

"They make perfect clothing," he said of working with Lardini, "and this will be imperfect."
