Stylist Harry Lambert, renowned for crafting the iconic looks of Harry Styles, collaborates with Zara to craft a collection that bridges the nostalgia of the past with a contemporary allure. This collaboration, titled Cutie Chaos, is Lambert’s first comprehensive venture into fashion design, translating his distinctive styling pedigree into a wearable narrative.

Cutie Chaos encapsulates over 60 pieces that reflect Lambert’s styling philosophy: garments designed to be mixed and matched and foster a deep personal connection with the wearer.

Lambert makes his mark in every detail, from the vintage-inspired aesthetic to the commitment to sustainable materials, aligning with Inditex, Zara’s parent company’s ambitious environmental targets.

Central to this collection is knitwear that features intarsia designs. The extended rib on the wrists and waist of the sweaters is a thoughtful nod to the past and channeled into the present with effortless ease.

Moving beyond the tactile softness of knitwear, the collection presents an array of outerwear that challenges and redefines menswear proportions. The oversized duffle coat with its faux-fur lining stands out, and a cropped faux-shearling jacket disrupts traditional menswear contours, playing with the interplay between the masculine and the flexible nature of modern fashion.

Lambert’s collection is incomplete without including accessories that both contrast and complement. Jewelry, like the crystal necklace reminiscent of Lambert’s daily wear and a trio of handbags, infuse each ensemble with a personalized touch. Footwear is also treated with chunky-soled lace-ups.

Commitment to sustainability is woven throughout, as seen in the collection’s dedication to lower-impact fibers. This aligns with the overarching vision for a more ecologically responsible fashion future, where recycled and organic materials are not just a statement but a standard.

Cutie Chaos transcends the tangible elements of clothing, encouraging the wearer to embed each piece with personal stories and memories. It is a collection where the fine details are just as pivotal as the overall aesthetic—from the discrete embroidery on the ripped baggy jeans to the rouleaux buttons on the shirting—each element is a tribute to Lambert’s meticulous eye.

The Harry Lambert x Zara Cutie Chaos collection explores personal style narratives grounded in sustainability. Available from November 13, 2023, the collection can be found on Zara.com and in selected stores worldwide.
