Harry Styles and Gucci Present the much awaited ‘Ha Ha Ha’ Collection
Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci, reportedly made the announcement during a press conference on Monday in Milan that the two of them had collaborated on a collection to be called “Ha Ha Ha” (a play on their initials).
Michele said that she and Styles have known each other for a long time because of their “shared obsession for fashion,” and that the collection is the natural outgrowth of their frequent WhatsApp exchanges, which are full of “floods of images of what we like” and demonstrate Styles’ extensive fashion knowledge and appreciation.
He went on to say, “He is intuitively attuned to the new ways of self representation, and he is the most courageous person in all the choices he makes.” “His repertoire is vast, he has an interesting idea of sexy, and he’s extremely articulate and aware in his eclectic approach.”
Still, Michele confessed he was “ready to be dismissive” when Styles first wanted to meet, despite the fact that their connection has blossomed over the years. But when Styles arrived there “dressed in a fabulous fake fur coat and I just loved it,” he changed his mind, and so began a lengthy relationship between the two.
After that minor setback and years of dressing Styles, Michele and Styles are ready to reveal a line of 1970s-inspired outfits that reflect the “Watermelon Sugar” singer’s love of whimsical garments and the designer’s fitted sensibility. There are various gingham pieces with graphic patterns of charming animals, such as Ha Ha Ha’s new mascot, a grumpy little teddy bear, and there are also bright wide-legged pants with grommets.
In October, Gucci boutiques will stock the Ha Ha Ha line.
