Harry owes the development of his personal style to his stylist Harry Lambert. “He just has fun with clothes and that’s what I’m talking about. He doesn’t take it too seriously, which means I don’t take it too seriously,” said the singer, who was the first man on the cover in a dress. of the magazine.
During their first meeting, Lambert suggested that the singer wear wide-leg pants, but he thought that was a bit strange at the time. Now it is different. “You can never be ‘overdressed’. That just doesn’t exist,” says Harry. “The people I look up to in music – Prince, David Bowie, Elvis, Freddie Mercury and Elton John – are such showmen. As a child that blew me away. Now I can do something myself that feels very flamboyant, but I don’t feel crazy wearing it. “
Everyone should experiment with clothes, says the singer. “Clothes are there to have fun with, to experiment with and to play with. That’s why it’s nice that those boundaries are gradually becoming blurred. When you take away the idea that there are clothes for men and clothes for women, you remove barriers. and there is room to play. “
Harry himself can often be found in the women’s sections of clothing stores. “Then I look at those women’s clothes and I love it,” he says. “You can have so much fun playing with clothes. I never think so much about what it means – it just becomes an extension of something you create.”
