John Legend is hoping to expand into fashion by creating his own clothing line one day.

The stylish award-winning singer, who recently released a collaboration with footwear firm Sperry, has rocked chic looks on the red carpet in recent years, and the self-confessed fashion lover is keen to release his own line in the future.

“I’ve always considered it but I’ve been so busy doing other things, it hasn’t been the first priority… yet,” he told WWD. “Again, I love collaborating with other artists and I see fashion as an art form.

“I don’t claim to be an artist in that sense, but I do have my own taste and my own sensibility and if the right collaboration came along, I would be interested.”

The All of Me hitmaker stunned at the Grammys last year in an unusual single-breasted suit by Alexander McQueen, and he enjoys mixing up classic tailoring with casual pieces.

“I am wearing a lot of McQueen lately – I love what they do. I’m wearing Gucci, Rich Fresh, Saint Laurent, a range of great designers and brands. I love classic shapes and styles but with a twist,” he explained, before touching on his show-stopping Grammys outfit.

“That McQueen suit for the Grammys was a great example: in many ways, it was a classic shape, but then that half kilt really made it rock star and gave it a cool twist,” John added.

The musician was also quizzed about life with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, but the 42-year-old refused to say who he thought was the most stylish.

“I think we both love fashion. We both see it as a way to express ourselves and collaborate with really great artists. Fashion is a cool part of our lives and we enjoy collaborating with great designers and expressing ourselves through fashion,” John shared.
