Emma Watson and Alberta Ferretti Are Collaborating on an Organic Clothing Line




    When it comes to child stars entering adulthood, Emma Watson is definitely following in the footsteps of Natalie Portman, versus the path treaded more dangerously by the likes of, say, Lindsay Lohan.

    In addition to promoting the most recent installation of the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One, the recently-enrolled Brown University student is busy making sure her homework assignments are in on time—and as an extra-curricular activity, the 20-year old is is now collaborating on an organic clothing collection with Italian designer Alberta Ferretti.

    Details of the collection are scarce, though Watson has said it's very much inspired by 60's British icon, Jane Birkin. According to Us, the partnership comes hot on the heels of the debut of Watson's own organic, ethically-minded clothing line, People Tree, and is expected to drop in stores as soon as early next year—"Just after Christmas," Watson told Us.
