Twilight star Robert Pattinson has revealed that he is branching out into other creative fields as he admitted he's been working on a clothing line for the past two years.

"I’ve started making clothes,” Pattinson told Numero magazine. “For the last two years, I’ve been visiting producers and craftsmen. There’s already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills.”

Although there's no news on when the clothing line will be launched, Pattinson offered some insight on the overall aesthetic.

“In Los Angeles it’s really easy to work with denim and do workwear inspired clothes,” the actor said. “In England I look more towards wool and knitwear. What I do is pretty multifaceted, clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends. . . . But I’m not going into too much detail, I don’t want to jinx anything.”

“Our collaboration is even extending to clothes starting this year,” Pattinson adds. “The first campaign comes out in April. I just feel super relaxed in that atmosphere, there’s nothing corporate about it.”

The Harry Potter actor also revealed that he will be expanding his collaboration with Dior (where he is the face of the Homme fragrance) to include fashion ads.

While clearly passionate about his new project, the 29-year-old actor and boyfriend of singer FKA twigs, revealed that he would not be turning his back on acting and is looking for projects far removed from Twilight.

“I guess that the public have a certain image of me,” Pattinson conceded. “I still feel like I need to prove myself. I haven’t had enough lead roles for people to associate me with something else, to see me in a different light. In the meantime I’m taking my own route, always with diversity in mind.”
