By admin on March 3,2024 • Comments Off on As Harry Styles Invests In SS Daley, The Designer Reflects On The Transformative Impact Of His Famous Fan’s Support

Applause was still resounding at Steven Stokey-Daley’s autumn/winter 2024 show in Florence tonight as the news was breaking that Harry Styles has invested in “a minority stake” in the designer’s quirkily British SS Daley brand. It’s kind of a natural – although unusual – story of a mutual admiration that’s grown up between a heartthrob popstar to a generation, and a young fashion designer.

It’s been very much organic,” said Stokey-Daley. “One of the really nice things is, Harry approached me and sort of made it apparent that he was a fan of what we’re doing. And of course, I’m very much a fan of his.” Stokey-Daley is 27 to Styles’s 29-years-old; close in age and eye-to-eye on the enjoyment of championing a new cosily-cool, trad-modern stamp on British dressing.

Their relationship tracks back to 2020, when Stokey-Daley had just graduated from Westminster University within a hair’s breadth of the first pandemic lockdown. Things could’ve gone very wrong for him at that point – despite the rave reception he got from the few who’d seen the accomplishment of his queering twist on British aristocratic school and sporting codes. He returned home to Liverpool and started posting his collection on instagram – within weeks, his radically super-wide pleated Oxford bags were garnering orders from young men from the US to South Korea, all similarly locked down.

That was the point at which a friend told Stokey-Daley that the stylist Harry Lambert had posted an instagram call-out for emerging designers to submit their work to him for a project he was working on. Lambert soon called Stokey-Daley and asked him to send pieces from his grad collection for something else: Harry Styles’s video for his track “Golden”, shot in Portofino. “When it came out, he completely widened the spotlight for me,” the designer remembers. “There was a huge acceleration in my orders. And it just escalated from there.” Styles was seen – and obsessed-over by fans – running around in SS Daley’s breezy pleat-fronted cotton-linen shirt and a pair of floral printer Oxford bags. “They were made from curtains my grandmother found in a charity shop in Liverpool. She was brilliant at doing all my sourcing of vintage materials at that time.” (The “Harry” trousers and shirt are now stopping crowds of schoolchildren in their tracks at the Rebel: 30 Years of London Fashion exhibition at the Design Museum.)

It seems silly to say “and the rest is history”, because this was under four years ago, and Stokey-Daley has only just turned 27. His drama-led productions have since caused sensations, and Harry Styles has kept on popping up in the brand: his mallard cardigan, a suit and other things. But with this announcement of financial investment, his support is now of another order. “It means I’ve been able to relaunch my direct-to-consumer website, and take on staff,” Stokey-Daley says. With the new polish of the made-in-Italy tailoring he showed today, along with his signature Oxford bags and cute bunny rabbit and gambolling lamb sweaters, it’s a boost that’s sure to enable him to get to the next stage of fulfilling his promise – and all of the orders that’ll flood in once the Harry Styles news gets out.

Harry Styles has used his solo career to lean into the music of bygone decades before, with his first two albums heavily drenched in the rock singer-songwriter stylings of the ’70s. His new single, too, has a flair for music as it was — but it’s far from a rerun of those previous albums. “As It Was,” released late Thursday, sounds like it has its roots in the synth-pop of the 1980s. You could even say he’s vaguely in a Depeche mode… or having an A-ha moment.

By admin on March 3,2022 • Comments Off on Harry Styles Dropped Out of Robert Eggers’ ‘Nosferatu’ Remake With Anya Taylor-Joy

Article by Deadline: Harry Styles was briefly attached to Robert Eggers’ “Nosferatu” remake before he dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts. The New Yorker first reported the casting exit. Contacted by Variety, a representative for Styles confirmed the news. Had Styles not pulled out of the movie, then “Nosferatu” would have paired the Grammy winner and “Dunkirk” actor with Anya Taylor-Joy.

Variety first reported in 2017 that “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse” director Robert Eggers was planning his own “Nosferatu” movie with Taylor-Joy, who collaborated with Eggers on their breakthrough indie “The Witch.” Taylor-Joy stars in Eggers’ upcoming Viking epic “The Northman,” in theaters April 22 from Focus Features. Production on “The Northman” got delayed by COVID in 2020, which is part of the reason the director’s “Nosferatu” plans have remained open-ended. Eggers confirmed earlier this year that he’s still in discussions with Taylor-Joy to do the movie, which will reimagine F. W. Murnau’s iconic 1922 vampire movie.

Eggers has long cited Murnau’s “Nosferatu” as one of his all-time favorite movies. As the director once told Shudder, “It was an indie horror in its day, a bit rough around the edges yet it’s one of the greatest and most haunting films ever made. The newly restored color tinted versions are really impressive, but I still prefer the poor black and white versions made from scraps of 16mm prints. Those grimy versions have an uncanny mystery to them and helped build the myth of Max Shreck being a real vampire.”

As for Styles, the “Nosferatu” movie would’ve added to his growing filmography that includes Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” Chloe Zhao’s “Eternals” (he appeared in the post-credits sequence, opening the door for future appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling” with Florence Pugh and Michael Grandage’s upcoming “My Policeman.” The latter title casts Styles opposite “The Crown” breakout Emma Corrin in the story of a gay policeman in the 1950s. The drama is based on the novel by Bethan Roberts and is expected to debut this fall.

Before “My Policeman” arrives, Styles will release his third solo album. The musician confirmed earlier this month that “Harry’s House” will be released May 20. The album follows his self-titled 2017 debut and his acclaimed 2019 follow-up “Fine Line,” which won Styles a Grammy for pop solo performance thanks to the single “Watermelon Sugar.” The first single from “Harry’s House” is titled “As It Was” and will be released April 1.
