Cody Simpson reveals what has spawned his new career as a fashion designer

Cody Simpson revealed the genesis of his clothing line Prince Neptune: The Label on Tuesday.

The Olympic athlete, 25, recounted Harper’s Bazaar his career as a fashion designer initially sprang from his love of poetry.

“I published a collection of poetry [in 2020] and originally the name and idea of ​​Prince Neptune came from the book because I was actually writing and planning to publish the work under that alias,” he said.

Cody continued, “We designed the trident symbol around it and I loved it so much that I wanted to expand it into a larger, more diverse brand – and my first thought was clothing. So that’s where it started.’

Cody told the publication he started working on the line in 2020 when he started working with brands in the fashion industry and attending shows.

There the musician-turned-swimmer developed “understanding and appreciation” for fashion designers.

Cody announced the launch of Prince Neptune: The Label in June when he modeled several items from his clothing collection.

“I was looking for really comfortable sweatshirts and t-shirts that were made sustainably, and I realized how hard it is to find them,” he said.

“It was very important to me to stay true to my vision, both in terms of design and what I represent.

“I published a collection of poetry [in 2020] and originally the name and idea of ​​Prince Neptune came from the book because I was actually writing and planning to publish the work under that alias,

“We took the time to think about things like saving water, using fewer chemicals, compostable packaging and using recycled materials, all without compromising on comfort and style.

“It’s important to me and hopefully to you too.”
