John Malkovich is a man of many talents within the filming industry, from acting to directing and producing. While many embark on side ventures such as actor-turns-singer, the results don’t always bode well. Lucky for Malkovich, he can turn his hand to anything and do a good job of it apparently, including the launch of Technobohemian – his men’s beachwear capsule collection exclusively for virtual store yoox.com.
“Techno, I think of technology. Bohemian is meant to be a free, romantic way of living but it actually comes from the Greek word ‘techno’ which means both the art of living and living art.” Coming straight from the horse’s mouth, this is the essence of his summer collection. Malkovich mixes simple, relaxed shapes with exquisite fabrics taking you from poolside to cocktail hour. The offering covers unstructured jackets and Bermuda shorts to shirts and accessories – all crafted from the finest linens, seersucker and cotton soured from some of his favourite fabric mills in Italy.
In an exclusive interview with yoox.com, John Malkovich talks about his inspiration, his personal sense of style offers visitors a rare glimpse into the creative mind’s eye of this modern-day Renaissance Man. Click here to watch the video.
