DRIVING FORCE: Chester Bennington, the lead vocalist of the band Linkin Park, has teamed up with Porsche Design to collaborate on a men’s wear capsule collection. The six-piece offering will have a “rock attitude,” and will include boots, sunglasses, a leather weekender bag, leather jacket, coated denim and graphic T-shirts.
“I’ve always loved fashion and had a deep appreciation for quality design,” Bennington said. The line will be priced from $109 to $1,950 and will make its debut in June at Porsche Design retailers worldwide. Bennington is no neophyte when it comes to fashion businesses, having launched a small cut-and-sew brand, Ve’cel, in 2007. The brand lasted two seasons.
