TOM AND JUSTIN: Tom Ford and Justin Timberlake have teamed for Timberlake’s upcoming album “The 20/20 Experience,” his first after a six-year break in which he focused on acting. The designer created the looks sported by the performer in the video and artwork for the album’s first single, which is fittingly called “Suit & Tie,” featuring Jay-Z. The cover of the single sees Timberlake sporting a tuxedo with satin peak lapels, pique front shirt and a signature Ford oversize bow tie, while the video makes much of the designer’s wares with Timberlake wearing a three-piece suit and a black peak lapel two-piece tuxedo as he sings, “As long as I’ve got my suit and tie/Imma leave it all on the floor tonight.”

Ford is said to have worked closely with Timberlake and his team to provide made-to-measure tailoring and accessories that will feature heavily in the album, which is expected to be released later this year. “I adore Justin. He has innate style and enormous talent. It has been such a pleasure and honor to work with him throughout this entire creative process,” said Ford.
