NEW Interview with Sam Heughan from Entertainment Weekly   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Sam Heughan from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Yes, he’s a hot Scot with a crazy popular show, piercing blue eyes and the manners of a prince, but you may not know that Sam Heughan’s repertoire extends far beyond acting and Hollywood heartthrob. In fact, he just added designer to his resume. The 37-year-old star, who plays Jamie Fraser on Starz’ mega-hit Outlander, serves as the global brand ambassador for Barbour. And this fall he made his mark on the label, designing a signature men’s and women’s capsule collection for the brand.

On Thursday, Heughan did a meet-and-greet with fans at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City to debut his signature line, and PEOPLE was lucky enough to catch up with him.

More after the jump!

Below, everything you need to know about his Barbour product drop and of course some Fraser facts.

Barbour Has Always Been a Brand Close to Heughan’s Heart
“I was born and brought up in Scotland in the South West around the corner from where John Barbour was born and raised. When I met Barbour a couple of years ago, we really struck up this great friendship and collaboration and we decided to do this capsule collection. We discussed everything I look for in clothing. The things I like and don’t like and they went back and we had quite a few meetings. I went down to their factory in South Shields and saw the process and how it’s made and actually their archive as well, which is incredible. They have an archive of all their clothing dating back to the 1800s and that was amazing to see how they’ve maintained this heritage and this line. From Scottish manufacturing to the fabrics to the knitwear to the tweed and the herringbone, which I really wanted to be part of the line, to the tartan…it’s really rewarding to see it all together.” (Shop his go-to jacket here!)

He Has a Few Favorite Pieces from the New Women’s Capsule
“I’m so happy with itInitially, we were just going to keep it a male collection, but I was really adamant that it would be nice to see both. The women’s wax jacket is beautiful, it’s fitted. It’s elegant. The quilted jacket is perfect for everywhere, and it looks cool. The oversized shawl I love as well. It’s a great gift.”

  1. A very busy young man! So much to do and so many places to go! Between acting, style promoter, physical training and “My Peak Challenge” (the lists gets bigger) – any down time here?
