You heard it here first: The look for fall 2018 has a distinct "I just threw this on on my way to the petting zoo" vibe. Harry Styles, for one, is doing an excellent job of demonstrating that eternal mood in his latest Gucci campaign, for the brand's Cruise 2019 Men's Tailoring collection. Photos from the campaign dropped Tuesday, well ahead of the official November release, and show Styles dressing up in Gucci's signature boldly patterned, impeccably cut suits while hanging out with a few very cute friends (no, not his former One Direction bandmates).
In one of these shots, Styles wears a classy navy windowpane patterned suit with brown suede detailing at the cuffs and lapel, and lime green edging on the suit and pockets. He pairs the look with casual striped sneakers and, obviously, carries a sweet baby lamb across his shoulders. In another truly stunning image, the musician dons a lavender blouse and pants, topped with a pale gray suit coat, wears a gold crown of leaves in his tousled hair, and carries a tiny piglet in one arm. l.
The campaign was styled and creatively directed by Alessandro Michele, of course, and shot by Glen Luchford, and art directed by Christopher Simmonds. It took place in the lush and peaceful Italian Renaissance gardens of the historic Villa Lante, located north of Rome. See more photos from the gorgeous, '70s-glam campaign below.
This isn't the first time Styles has gotten up close and personal with a squad of barnyard animals for his beloved Gucci. In June, the designer unveiled its Fall 2018 Men's Tailoring campaign, in which Harry once again sported a few perfectly tailored and uniquely styled suits. This time, however, he was photographed in a fish and chips shop in North London, surrounded by a few rogue chickens and a scruffy pack of dogs. Sounds like a setup for a health code violation — and yet another series of amazing looks to make your own this fall.
As for Michele, maybe it's not a surprise that he's cast baby piglets in his latest Gucci campaign. Afterall, one of the few accounts he follows on Instagram features a group of tiny pigs in Florida.
