Zayn Malik's style sussed
Stylist Jason Rembert loves how collaborative his client Zayn Malik is.
Zayn Malik is a big fan of jackets and slim-cut jeans with a touch of the "unexpected", according to his stylist.
The 23-year-old singer has stepped out with an edgier aesthetic since leaving boy band One Direction in March 2015, something which has only added to his heartthrob status. Fashion expert Jason Rembert has been working with Zayn on choosing outfits for public events, and knows exactly what the star favours.
"With Zayn, we do a lot of darker clothing," he explained to gq.com. "He wears blacks and greys on a daily basis. And then we’ll add something unexpected like Emanuele Bicocchi rings or a pair of Guidi boots and then a great coat that maybe has an interesting length or detail.
"Zayn loves jackets. The Balmain jacket he just wore for The Voice (U.S.) finale was a good example. I thought it was a cool take on the typical leather jacket. But then we just put it with jeans so it didn’t look too crazy. Zayn likes a slimmer cut jean from brands like Ksubi, AGOLDE, and Diesel."
Jason is impressed at Zayn's clear vision when it comes to his personal style. He's always been clear about what he likes and wants to wear, making it very much a collaborative process with his stylist.
For the Met Gala in May (16) guests were required to dress according to the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology theme, with Zayn and his off-on again girlfriend Gigi Hadid rocking similar metallic outfits, including a piece of armour on the musician's arm.
"With the Met Gala, he came up with the idea of what he wanted to wear and I just came back with sketches and small tweaks to the idea," Jason recalled. "For instance, I suggested we do a suit and not a tuxedo, and that we skip the tie. We also went back and forth on the metal with Versace, figuring out what would look right. But he was very involved in the whole process."
