He is best known as being one of the lead singers in hit boy band Take That but a couple of years ago Robbie Williams tried his hand at fashion by launching a new clothing range.
Unfortunately for him, the fashion venture- which he called Farrell- has collapsed.
The 39-year-old founded the British menswear line back in 2011 which he named after his grandfather Jack Farrell but it has now gone into liquidation.
A statement by the entertainer said: “The support of the men’s press and retailers internationally since we started has been incredible and I want to thank them. I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the talented Ben Dickens and will miss creating and working with and wish him every luck for the future.”
On the singer’s official website, it states that Farrell was “built upon the foundations of old-fashioned, British values- honesty, integrity and the sense of men being men.” The brand’s motto was “Wear it in, wear it out.”
However, the clothing range has now gone bust just six weeks after its first London pop-up store opened in Covent Garden.
The short-lived label has ceased trading and the e-commerce site is no longer live.
Robbie hired Ben Dickens, a former design director for Burberry, to support the brand. The range was stocked at prestigious high-end stores including House of Fraser and Selfridges.
But he’s not the only celebrity to struggle with finances lately. Party-loving Calum Best filed for bankruptcy earlier this month and Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas was also declared bankrupt following a dispute over unpaid taxes.
