Albert Hammond, Jr. at The Mercury Lounge (07/01/08)
Fashion plate and Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. apparently doesn’t like to shop off the rack, (unless it’s his own that is). This fall he’ll become another one of the countless straight male rockers to have produced his own line of clothing. Could a guest judging spot on Project Runway be far behind?
His line of suits, designed with celeb stylist Ilaria Urbinati (who’s dressed James McAvoy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the ladies of The L Word), will be for sale this fall at her store in L.A. “I want to make suits that I’m going to have for myself,” Hammond says. [NYMag.com]
