Alessandro Michele said: “Harry has an incredible sense of fashion.
‘ Noting his ability to combine clothes in a way that is out of the ordinary with regard to the required standards of taste and common sense and the homogenization of appearance…
“I understood that the styling of a look generates differences and powers, just like its reactions to the designs that I created for it and that it has always made its own; these reactions always give me a boost of freedom.
The collection was created between Harry and Alessandro Michele – the design itself was done by Alessandro and Gucci.
Gucci announced the news at a press conference during Men’s Fashion Week in Milan.

The As It Was singer and the Italian fashion designer have worked on a capsule collection that will include a range of costumes that combine both masculinity and elegance.
The 25-piece line will also showcase the playful energy of corporate Harry through pants, shirts, coats and several accessories.
Alessandro said in a statement: “Harry has a very clear and precise point of view, in addition to great instincts and he chooses his clothes with great care.”
“The idea for this capsule is mundane in its simplicity, and it’s an act of love, but it’s valuable, it’s sophisticated, and we’ve paid a lot of attention to fabrics and sartorial details.

“It was a light and easy activity with this kind of relationship. But the result is serious.
He continues: “The idea of working together came to me one day while we were talking on the phone: I suggested that he create a ‘dream dressing room’ with him, from these little quirks that come together in visions childish.
“We ended up with a mix of aesthetics ranging from 1970s pop and bohemian to revising the image of the gentleman in a disrupted memory of men’s tailoring.”
The collection will hit stores in October and was unveiled as part of Milan Men’s Fashion Week.

Others joked that the collection was called ‘HA HA HA’ because Harry made fun of how ‘broken’ the fans were.
Harry has clearly been a huge Gucci fan for some time, having met the brand’s creative director several years ago when he was part of One Direction.
He is often seen wearing their pieces on stage during his concerts and appearances.
Last month, Harry released his third solo album Harry’s House to huge chart-topping success.
Her debut single As It Was charted at number one for the past 10 weeks on the official UK charts.
The star recently performed at Wembley Stadium, leaving thousands of fans awestruck and mesmerized by her incredible show.
