Harry Styles is now well acquainted with Alessandro Michele's imagination.

The former One Directioner has starred in two of the designer's campaigns for Gucci's Tailoring collections and also co-chaired this year's Met Gala along with Michele, where he hit the pink carpet dressed exclusively in head-to-toe Gucci. Now, Styles is back with Gucci's most eclectic advertising campaign to date.

The third instalment of the Tailoring series, shot by photographer Harmony Korine and art directed by Christopher Simmonds, see Styles exploring the unconventional and antique, described by Gucci as "a dreamscape of statuary and artworks."

Styles stands out in several new pre-fall 2019 pieces, including the electric blue velvet trouser suit which the singer first wore in April at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Michele's boundary-blurring vision of men's formalwear sees Styles rock a £1,600 houndstooth wool cape over a suit jacket and waistcoat, all paired with relaxed jogging bottoms and embellished slides. Other images show pink blazers coupled with casual breton tops and bandanas.

The eccentric outfits are heavily accessorised, most notably with handbags. Styles is photographed holding a men's tote bag, currently available to buy now for £525, while another image shines a splotlight on the unisex Gucci Zumi shoulder bag.

Fans of Styles' previous Gucci campaigns will also be pleased to see that his gang of farmyard friends have made a return. This time, lovable piglets are seen scampering around, while a flock of swans have been introduced to the brood.

In the accompanying campaign video, a nonchalant Styles is seen reading a book to a group of swans, grooming and cuddling his pet piglet, spray painting a statue and making an origami​ swan.

All in a day's work.
