Justin Timberlake Wore Custom Stella McCartney for Super Bowl LII
Justin Timberlake wore custom Stella McCartney pieces during his halftime performance at Super Bowl LII. The last time he took the stage at the Super Bowl was in 2004 with the unforgettable Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction. In fact, Spotify streams of Ms. Jackson increased 150% during the halftime performance.
JT’s collaboration with Stella McCartney was motivated by his fifth and newest album, Man of the Woods. Justin Timberlake’s album was named after his son Silas, which means “Man of the Woods” in Latin. In an interview with E! News Justin revealed "this album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I've ever written, where I'm from and it's personal.”
His slick ensemble aligned with themes found in Stella McCartney’s latest collections; sustainable materials and social responsibility. Some featured materials included alter nappa (an eco-friendly alternative to leather), organic cotton, and repurposed wool fabric. According to Esquire columnist, Christine Flammia, “JT sported a fringe jacket, a t-shirt displaying landscape artwork by Martin Ridley, and Prince of Whales Check/camouflage splatter print trousers.” Justin’s outfit was the center of attention, especially without the distraction of guest star appearances.
