Former One Direction frontman Harry Styles has always set his own style score, known to leave us swooning with his androgynous, boy-in-the-band look (heavy on Saint Laurent and Gucci) enlivened by his 55-and-counting tattoos. (Should you need to get up to sartorial speed, the Twitter account @Harryworewhat is dedicated to tracking the 24-year-old’s every fashion move.) Let’s just say that Styles was knighted into the fashion world, so to speak, in 2013, when he nabbed the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards and has been on the up and up ever since.
When Alessandro Michele took over the reigns of Gucci in 2015 and fueled it with his wildly successful OTT flair, Styles upped his game with the Italian label’s ruffled and pussy-bow blouses, colorful wallpaper floral suits and widely flared trousers. So it’s not exactly a surprise that now Styles and Gucci are teaming to make their partnership official in a new campaign, teased on Gucci's Instagram page over the weekend.
