MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx recently spoke to Statesman.com about Royal Underground, his clothing line with former St. John CEO Kelly Gray.
Like other celebs before him, Sixx has turned to fashion, with a line of rock 'n' roll-inspired T-shirts, slim Japanese denim jeans, cashmere hoodies and jewelry in his Royal Underground collection, which is sold at select Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's stores.
But what makes him any different from the Diddys, Paris Hiltons, Jay-Zs and Jennifer Lopezes of the world?
"I've been designing clothes since I was a teenager," Sixx, 48, says. "Always very instrumental in the way I've looked personally and how our bands looked. With MÖTLEY, we always changed our look every single time. There's something in me that likes to create new stuff. It was a perfect fit when me and Kelly got together and to be able to take it to a retail level."
Regarding his favorite must-haves in the collection, Sixx says, "Our cashmere zip-up hoodies. They can be worn more high-end, and you can dress them up with a nice pair of pants and a jacket even. Or you can wear them casually with jeans and tennis shoes. They are so comfortable I actually hang out in my house in them."
