Weiland for English Laundry to debut at Magic Las Vegas

Scott Weiland, legendary lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, and Christopher Wicks, designer and owner Rock & Roll Religion, have announced the launch of their much anticipated contemporary men's collection -- Weiland for English Laundry. This inaugural collection will debut at Magic Las Vegas on February 17, 2009.

Christopher Wicks, designer and owner of English Laundry, Fender: The Clothing Collection, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, has teamed with Scott Weiland to create a collection that embodies the iconic style of the fashionable STP front man.

"From early on, I was inspired by rock icons like David Bowie and Keith Richards who helped in molding my personal sense of style," said Weiland. "I am really looking forward to launching this line with Christopher Wicks and English Laundry."

"I have the utmost respect for Scott Weiland, both as an artist and as a designer," said Wicks. "He is truly one of the last great rock stars, and his impact on style and music is undeniable. I am proud to be joining forces with him for this collaboration."

Weiland for English Laundry is a lifestyle brand for the true rock rebel. The overall concept is derived from the rock decadence of the 1960's, and inspirations were taken from Savile Row circa 1965 and renowned bands such as The Kinks, Beatles, and Rolling Stones. Eclectic combinations of fabrics, patterns and color have been reformulated to replicate the rich rock culture that defined that era.

The collection boasts a variety of wovens, vests, t-shirts, pants, hats, ties and scarves. All fabrics are based on original vintage patterns circa 1965 through 1979 and have been reproduced for modern-day wear. Pants have a tailored narrow fit with flat fronts, and wovens feature bold chalk stripes, Prince of Wales plaids and tonic two-tone solids.

Scott Weiland has become one of the music world's most highly respected and prolific artists. As the front man for Stone Temple Pilots, Weiland has remained a dominant force in rock music since the group's inception in 1992. STP's 2008 reunion tour re-cemented the group's standing as one of the most successful rock groups of all time, and their impressively extensive and top-selling catalog, including five studio albums and countless hits, has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide. In 2004, Weiland became front man for rock super-group Velvet Revolver and lead the group to achieve both critical and commercial success.

Weiland most recently released his second solo album, "Happy" in Galoshes on November 25, 2008 via the artist's label Softdrive Records and distributed by New West Records/RED/SONY. The release was produced by Scott Weiland and Doug Grean (Velvet Revolver, Sheryl Crow, Crystal Method) with select tracks recorded by Steve Albini. The album also features several guest appearances including Adrian Young, Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont of No Doubt and Gary Beers from INXS.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Rock & Roll Religion, owned by designer Christopher Wicks, is the parent company of brands including English Laundry, Fender(R): The Clothing Collection, Jimi Hendrix: The Experience, and DaVinci.
