Gucci has enlisted Harmony Korine to photograph its Pre-Fall 2019 tailoring campaign starring Harry Styles. Korine has worked with Gucci in the past, including on the Pre-Fall men’s and women’s lookbook. For the House’s tailoring collection, Korine captures Harry Styles as an eclectic, care-free character surrounded by piglets, swans and Roman busts.
The campaign shoot spotlights Alessandro Michele‘s fascination with antiquities and challenges the norms of formalwear through the contrast between Gucci suits and the campaign’s setting. Pieces worn by Styles are oversized and nod to the 1970s, with standout pieces including a double-breasted velvet blue suit and pink blazer with exaggerated lapels. Throughout the tailoring campaign, Styles is seen sporting a number of Gucci accessories such as a Crocodile leather Zumi shoulder bag, white leather sandals and a frame-logo coated cotton tote bag.
Take a look at the Harmony Korine-shot Pre-Fall 2019 tailoring campaign in the gallery above.
