“I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”

Harry’s hand-painted custom Bode pants feature biographical images and emblems personal to him. A Robin bird, his godchildren’s names, his fathers and mothers birth year along with his own, a portrait of English painter David Hockney, his childhood dog Max and much more - 13/11/20

Harry Styles - Cherry [Acoustic] (via vogue.com) - 13.11.2020
Harry Styles is our December cover star, and Vogue is taking you behind the scenes of the fashion-filled photo shoot, which was shot on location at the Seven Sisters cliffs in Sussex, England. Directed by Lillie Eiger, the new cover video sees Styles perform an impromptu acoustic rendition of “Cherry”—a song from his second solo album, 2019’s Fine Line—while armed with his Fender acoustic, a lacey Bode shirt, and Eliou necklace.
The global superstar was profiled for the issue by Hamish Bowles, photographed by Tyler Mitchell, and styled by Camilla Nickerson. In the story, the musician opened up on experimenting with fashion, navigating this difficult year, and how he found his sound as a solo artist post-One Direction. “I think the typical thing is to come out of a band like that and almost feel like you have to apologize for being in it. But I loved my time in it,” Styles told Bowles. “I think with the second album [Fine Line] I let go of the fear of getting it wrong and…it was really joyous and really free I think with music it’s so important to evolve—and that extends to clothes and videos and all that stuff.”
In the dreamy, picturesque cover video, Styles is seen wearing an array of genderless looks that certainly plays up his willingness to play with fashion. He sports a lace-trimmed Gucci gown, a Comme des Garçons Homme Plus kilt suit, Bode pants, and other striking pieces. In between shots, Styles strummed his guitar on set while taking in the soothing seaside setting—at one point he shared a quick embrace with his sister Gemma Styles, who was also a part of the shoot, dressed in a Chopova Lowena dress. At the end of his special “Cherry” performance, Styles declared, “Thank you, fashion!” No, Harry—Thank you.
