Harry Styles is an outlier. Not only is the “Watermelon Sugar” singer the only man to grace the cover of US Vogue in the magazine’s 128-year history, but his new neutral and eccentric glam-rock looks – whether this The Gucci feather boa he wore to last year’s Grammy Awards, or the flamboyant pink feathered coat he headlined at Coachella this year, will always send social media into a frenzy.
The latest of these is the multi-colored crochet top the singer wore to dinner at famed Italian restaurant Rubirosa in SoHo with Olivia Wilde, which he paired with brown pinstripe pants and a clean pair of white sneakers, and is just one of the charming granny-knitted garments owned by the megawatt singer.
Fans will recall that the JW Anderson cardigan he wore on the Today show was so popular that it got its own hashtag on TikTok (and started a wild DIY trend with its crafting fans). Then there was the crocheted orange tank top he wore in ‘Watermelon Sugar’ which launched thousands of imitations on the online retailer Etsy. Not to mention all the Princess Diana-inspired pieces he’s rolled out while on tour for his Thin line album, which he released in 2019.
Since working with super stylist Harry Lambert, Harry Styles has been the first to discover fashion’s hottest pieces. With crocheted and kitschy knits all over the SS23 runways (homemade cardigans at Loewe; Dowager-style Argyle cardigans at Versace), her obsession with knitting doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
