Apart from loving the former One Direction member Zayn Malik for his music, the longtime fans are also crazy about his looks. Since leaving the band, the 25-year-old has been acing every venture he has taken up.
His experiments with style, whether the buzzing hair colors, piercings, tattoos or borrowing clothes from the on-and-off girlfriend Gigi Hadid, Malik has won the hearts of millions with everything he does.
Killing millions across the world with his punk, bold, and carefree attitude paired with impeccable looks, the singer is remembered amongst the fans for his frequent pre– and post–One Direction stage appearances in cool punk-inspired styles. Apparently, the personal style of the Bradford boy has been noted by the French Fashion Brand, The Kooples, which has collaborated with him on a line of accessories. Additionally, the brand has named Zayn as their first-ever menswear muse.
As reported by WWD, The Kooples in a press release stated that it picked Zayn for his “rock-‘n’-roll and bold attitude.” The singer is on the brand’s posters for his potential to influence to the contemporary luxury audience that the brand aims to target.
Cofounder and chief executive officer of The Kooples, Nicolas Dreyfus told WWD, “For fall-winter 2018, we have chosen Zayn Malik, who perfectly embodies our style renewal toward more streetwear, oversized cuts and redesigned proportions. He has a rebellious, tough attitude with a casual yet always elegant sense of style. Zayn is sexy, creative and charismatic and was deeply involved throughout the design and creation process.”
Zayn Malik will appear in the fall 2018 advertising campaign of the brand, which is going to be the first for the brand. Besides, he has also helped The Kooples in co-designing a range of backpacks. Believe it or not, the designs are as punky and stylish as Malik himself.
