When it comes to introducing fashion fluidity to the mainstream, the ever-iconic Harry Styles is leading the charge

If you've somehow missed the news, Gucci's Alessandro Michele and pop matrix Harry Styles have collaborated on a new design collection. The 25-piece series, which goes by the name “Gucci HA HA HA”, beams in bright palatable colours and eccentric motifs in an ode to fashionable expression.


The announcement came from Michele amidst men’s fashion week in Milan, a day after Mr. Style shimmied across the stage at Wembley wearing an eclectic Gucci ensemble. Taking to social media, Gucci promptly unveiled a first look at the collection, comprising “sartorial suits, treated denim-jackets, and velvet suits in irregular hues”. It doesn’t stop there. “Unexpected printed pyjamas and bowling shirts, lined coats with hoods and frog fasteners, and pleated kilts with leather regulating straps” also permeate the collection. It’s almost edible.
