As the host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison has doled out plenty of dating advice. Now that he’s preparing for the launch of his own clothing line, can future contestants also expect to benefit from his sartorial wisdom?
“I’m working very closely with Cary Fetman, who has been our wardrobe designer for nine out of the ten years we’ve been doing The Bachelor,” the TV host told EW. “He’s working with me and [co-designer] Christopher Wicks on this deal and helping me incorporate [the clothes] into the show.” As it happens, the Chris Harrison Collection by Da Vinci will arrive in stores the same day the Bachelor finale airs next month. “I’ll wear one of my suits on the finale, and then we’re going to roll over to a launch party at the Da Vinci store on Melrose in L.A.,” Harrison explained. “I’m really excited about it!”
Harrison took his new togs out for a test run on Sunday night, donning a jacket, vest and tie (pictured above) from his eponymous line to host the TV Guide Network’s Grammy Awards red carpet show and attend a post-ceremony party. “I had a red tie, kind of skinny tie with this cool Eldridge knot,” he said of the ensemble. “Neil Patrick Harris could not stop talking about it.”
Harrison hopes the buzz will continue to grow once his designs make their Bachelor debut.
