Zayn Malik And Harry Styles Can’t Get Enough Of This Clothing Brand
So far in 2020 we've been blessed with a new Selena Gomez album (arguably her best yet), news that Billie Eilish has penned (and will record) the No Time To Die theme song, and the launch of David Beckham's eyewear brand. We've also seen a rare sighting of Zayn Malik.
Without doubt, 2019 was the year of Harry Styles, who not only hosted the Met Gala alongside Gucci creative lead Alessandro Michele and Lady Gaga but also had more #menswear moments than we can count and released his Billboard-topping sophomore album, Fine Line. Liam Payne had a good year too, launching a collaboration with Hugo and, again, releasing an LP. Zayn, while having a few features on songs here and there (if you haven't heard Shaed's “Trampoline”, you need to), had, however, a relatively quiet year.
Well, that's about to change, and at the time of writing Malik has been spotted not once, but twice – big news for someone who was rarely seen last year (the last image of him was taken on 1 October 2018). It might be down to a want to show off his reconciliation with on/off-again girlfriend Gigi Hadid, but one thing is for certain: he's back in the limelight and he's got a fresh new wardrobe.
Malik has been seen in a minty-green patchwork jacket, as well as a striped, slightly cropped burgundy number, and his designer of choice for the new decade is Bode. Not heard of it? Well, you should have. Emily Adams Bode's eponymous brand has already been worn by Donald Glover, Lakeith Stanfield and even Malik's former band member Styles in his “Adore You” video. The 2019 CFDA Emerging Designer Of The Year recipient makes clothes entirely from antique finds and the result is sustainable collection after sustainable collection that are patchwork heavy, totally wearable and nothing like the blankets your Grandma Jude insisted you use. One jacket on the site, for instance, is crafted from a 1940s quilt. Greta Thunberg would be impressed.
Couldn't quite stick to Veganuary but still want to do your bit? Sustainable Bode is the way forward and below are our top picks from the NYC-based brand.
