Remember Justin Timberlake's denim line, William Rast? It's still around! This week, the brand unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, starring supermodel Anja Rubik and Oakland-based rapper G-Eazy. According to a press release, William Rast picked the pair because they "bridge the worlds of high fashion and music" and G-Eazy "fittingly embodies the modern interpretation of Rat Pack and casual tailoring of the men's line." (It certainly can't hurt that G-Eazy, one of MTV's Artists To Watch, is also signed to Timberlake's record label.) Regardless of the brand's motivations for picking the These Things Happen artist, the black-and-white campaign, shot by Paola Kudacki, is gorgeous. If you didn't know G-Eazy before, you'll certainly remember him now.
