When it comes to taking care of his clothing, Harry Styles does not mess around.
In an interview with British GQ, one of the 25-year-old singer’s clothing designers spills the beans about the lengths to which the One Direction member will go to keep his stage outfits in pristine condition.
Harris Reed, who created the singer’s unique look for his “Light Up” music video, reveals that Style keeps his most treasured outfits in a deep-freeze cryogenic closet monitored with 24-hour surveillance.
“I can’t say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive,” says Reed, who will only say that the cryogenic closet is somewhere in England.
“It’s basically like a giant refrigerator — a frozen vault,” he adds. “The clothes all have 24-hour surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically done for his outfits, and they have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them.”
Reed designed several outfits for Styles’ first solo tour, but wondered what happened to the ones that he didn’t wear onstage.
“That’s also what is more surreal for me,” he explained. “After his first solo tour that I produced 14-15 looks for — he wore about six or seven — I was wondering where the others were and he was like, ‘Don’t worry, they are all under surveillance.’ I was like, ‘Oh, that’s chic.’”
