Harry Styles Teams Up with Gucci on Surprise Collection, Ha Ha Ha

Bonafide heartthrob Harry Styles has gone from a scruffy-haired, beanie-wearing teenager to a full-fledged fashion icon in a matter of years, in part thanks to his friendship with Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele. Now the two have announced an official collaboration with the launch of Gucci’s Ha Ha Ha collection, and it’s no joke.

At a press conference in Milan announcing the collaboration, Alessandro Michele waxed lyrical about Styles’ natural style and why he was drawn to collaborate with the musician.

He’s the most courageous person in all the choices he makes, and he’s intuitively attuned to the new ways of self representation. His repertoire is vast, he has an interesting idea of sexy, and he’s extremely articulate and aware in his eclectic approach.

Michele revealed that the collaboration grew out of years of conversations mostly limited to phone calls and Whatsapp messages. In fact, this is where the collection’s Ha Ha Ha name comes from. The name is drawn from a combination of the pairs’ initials, but it’s also a play on the laughing face emoji, which is the way that Michele and Styles have ended their messages to each other for years.

The collab came to be rather organically.

The idea of working together came to me one day while we were talking on the phone, I proposed creating a ‘dream wardrobe‘ with him, starting from those small oddities that come together in childlike visions. We ended up with a mix of aesthetics from 1970s pop and bohemian to the revision of the image of the gentleman in an overturned memory of men’s tailoring.

The collection features jackets, coats, pants, shirts and accessories with 70s-style silhouettes and boho prints mixed in with British-inspired patterns and classic men’s tailoring.

The 25-look collection is set to be released this October.
