Steven Tyler Shops His Daughter's Closet, Once Wore One of Liv's Shirts Backwards for a Month
The fashionably flamboyant and legendary Aerosmith frontman (or American Idol judge who is not Jennifer Lopez to those born after 1990) Steven Tyler kicked off the launch of the exclusive-to-Macy’s Andrew Charles line this past Friday, with an appearance for roughly 300 avid fans at the Herald Square flagship. Tyler serves as the muse for the Andy Hilfiger-designed Macy’s exclusive men’s and women’s wear Andrew Charles line, as well as the aptly-named "Rock Scarf" collection. Considering the frontman’s penchant for wearing the flowy neckpieces on his person and tying multiples onto his mic stand, Rock Scarf is pretty much a no-brainer. Tyler also stars with his 22-year old daughter Chelsea in the ad campaign. We caught up with the man of the hour--wearing enough bracelets on each forearm to be the life of a Man Repeller-approved Arm Party and sporting DIY nail art (i.e., hand-drawn black vertical Sharpie-lines on each nail)--to get his take on music-meets-fashion. “I’m androgynous,” declares the “Dude Looks Like a Lady” singer. “I’ve just got more female energy. I like that flowing and nurturing and I’m a songwriter, so I’m into form and fashion and how it all goes together. Always have been, so it’s just perfect.” Not quite sure if he’d consider wearing a Versace pencil skirt to meet the Queen of England, but we did hear this rumor about him gleaning wardrobe ideas from daughter Liv Tyler’s designer-filled closet.
Steven Tyler Is the Face and "Inspiration" For New Macy's Line Featuring "Rock Scarves"
Steven Tyler is enjoying his umpteenth resurgence as a pop culture commodity right now with his popular stint as a judge on American Idol. A long-time style icon, and still proving he has a good eye--he was an early adopter of the hair feather extension, after all--Steven Tyler is the inspiration for a new contemporary clothing line called Andrew Charles. The line will be exclusive to Macy's, and will be sold in the store's Impulse department. Andrew Charles is the brain child of Andy Hilfiger, brother of Tommy (who isn't involved in this endeavor). The Hilfigers are well-documented supporters of the music industry, and Andy told WWD, "I grew up on Aerosmith and Steven Tyler. I've always loved his music and his style." Andy was involved in J.Lo's Sweetface line, so the blurring of music and fashion is familiar to him.
