Let’s get a show of hands — is anyone else obsessed with Harry Styles‘ epic sense of style? From bright and colorful outfits to sparkly and lace suits, the One Direction singer is constantly pushing the boundaries when it comes to his clothes. But when he’s not wearing them, what does the “Sign of the Times” crooner do with his fabulous looks? Well, his stylist, Harris Reed, just revealed that Harry keeps his clothes in a “frozen vault” that has 24-hour surveillance!
“I can’t say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive. It’s basically like a giant refrigerator — a frozen vault — somewhere in London where I am not going to disclose. But the clothes all have 24 hours surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically done for his outfits, and they have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them,” the designer told GQ. “That’s also what is more surreal for me. After his first solo tour that I produced 14-15 looks for — he wore about six or seven — I was wondering where the others were and he was like, ‘Don’t worry, they are all under surveillance.’ I was like, ‘Oh, that’s chic.'”
Wow. Not only did Harris design a bunch of Harry’s tour looks, but he also styled the 25-year-old for his recent “Lights Up” music video!
“The outfit I did for the ‘Lights Up’ video was sleeveless and the trousers had a slight flare, so he could dance and do his pelvic thrusting, which he loves to do,” Harris explained, adding that he wanted the outfit to make Harry look like he “was about to go on stage and take the world.”
Harris met the 1D heartthrob back in 2017, through a mutual friend named Harry Lambert, who is also a stylist.
“It was November 2017 at one of his shows, at the Hammersmith Arena, and I got a text message from Harry Lambert saying, ‘OK, just meet us at the stage door.’ It was insane — a sea of screaming girls, men and women were fainting and being taken away in ambulances… I was like, ‘What the f**k?’ It was insane,” he said. “And so I found the stage door and went up to this woman who was wearing this huge red coat and I went, ‘Hi, I am here to see Harry Styles.’ Obviously she laughed in in my face, saying something like, ‘Who the f**k are you?’ I replied, ‘I am going to be Harry Styles’ designer.’ Like that, I’m not sure where the bravado came from! She goes, ‘Of course, come with me.’ I was led me through the crowd and right then and there I met Harry and the rest is history, I guess.”
As for what’s next for Harry, Harris already has some epic outfits in mind.
“I think people can expect some pretty crazy, fabulous things coming. I can’t say too much. I think with Harry I am hoping this is really just the beginning and as he evolves with his own music, and I evolve as a young designer, I hope we can work on more possible projects and clothes,” he concluded. “It’s never just music with him as for me it’s never just clothes — it’s the message too. That is what inspires me.”
