Motown legend and onetime Miracles frontman Smokey Robinson has teamed up with the tailor of late boxing legend Joe Frazier to launch a new clothing line in 2012. James Andrew has been working with Robinson in recent months and their line of suits, shirts and golfwear is due next spring.
Andrew, who was also planning to release a line with Frazier before he passed away a month ago, told WENN that "I have always been a fan of Smokey's music and he's a very stylish guy so when he got in touch with me and we started working together I was thrilled."
The signature item in the new Smokey Robinson Collection is an ice-white suit. Andrew hopes his partner will model in 2012 before it becomes available at retailers. Hey, if Smokey wants to promote this line, the best way to do it is by wearing the clothing so people can see how it looks on the human form.
Robinson and Andrew also have plans for a womenswear and accessories line, along with perfume + cologne.
