Will Harry Styles Launch His Own Line? We Talk Fashion With The One Direction Star

Harry Styles has received a British Fashion Award, knows his Saint Laurent from his Celine, is a front row veteran and has created his own signature look of printed shirts.

So when we had afternoon tea with him at the launch of the new 1D fragrance Between Us (more on that here), we had to ask if he has any plans to move into fashion, or even, to start his own clothing line. Harry’s headbands has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

When we asked if he plans to move into fashion he said: “It’s definitely something I’m interested in. I don’t know if I necessarily am qualified to do my own thing, I just wear what I like and what’s comfortable, so I don’t know how qualified I would be to do something like that.”

He added: “But I definitely find it fun, the fun thing with clothes and everything like that is it’s just complete personal opinion and so it’s just whatever you want to say and you want to get across.”

So he wouldn’t want loads of people dressed like Harry Styles? He said: “No maybe not no!”

Former 1D boy Zayn Malik made his Paris Fashion Week debut this week on the front row at Valentino. But don’t expect the whole of 1D to be a front row fixture, Louis said to us: “it’s not that I’m not interested in fashion, I just don’t know about it. I shop in Topman that’s about it.”

Now if you want to win over Harry Styles, go easy on the fragrance as he said he likes “subtle stuff” and “nothing too crazily overpowering” on a woman.

Now in case you’re wondering what Harry Styles smells like, it’s Tom Ford.

Exclusive Interview: Fashion Photographer Matteo Montanari

Think film is dead in the world of fashion? Think again! We sit down with amazingly talented fashion photographer Matteo Montanari to discuss what it’s like shooting film in a mostly digital industry.

  • Clients: Gucci, Chloé, Calvin Klein, Allsaints, J-Crew, Replay, Mr. Porter, Max&Co, Diesel
  • Publications: i-D, Vogue US, WSJ magazine, Another Man, Teen Vogue, Vogue Russia, L'Uomo Vogue, M Le Monde, GQ Style


Why do you choose to shoot film?

I choose to shoot film because I love concentrating on taking pictures and not looking at a screen to see what I’m doing. Improvising, experimenting without boundaries, and I actually like the idea I might fuck up.

Then there’s nothing more exciting and amazing than those 24-48 hours between the shoot and the contact sheet. Its a mix of anxiety and butterflies and fear and excitement… you always think you might have fucked up big time or maybe you took some great shots… you have a feeling but you don’t know for sure. It’s like when you are on your way to the airport to pick up someone you love and haven’t seen in a while.. I could never live without that feeling. Its what got me into photography so yeah I will never stop shooting film.
