While scrolling through Zayn Malik‘s Insta-stories yesterday, we were thrilled to see the rockstar post a pic of our friend in London, Nakul Patel, wearing a jacket by Zayn X Versus.
It must be a huge high to wake up in the morning and find your photo has been shared on the Insta-Stories page of one of the world’s leading musicians and fashion icons.
And that’s exactly how our friend, Nakul Patel felt, when he was made aware of his photo on Zayn Malik’s Instagram Stories feed.
Says Nakul, “Last week, I had the opportunity to try out the Zayn x Versus gear for my shoot for a British style magazine. The spread will feature me in my personally selected favourite looks, which will include the new line of Versus Versace. I’ve been looking forward to the Versus collaboration with Zayn ever since I heard about it happening last year and it certainly lived up to the expectations. Zayn has always had a great sense of fashion, he’s also a massive creative individual not just with his incredible music (Mind of Mine is a masterpiece) but also his love for art, drawing and graffiti. So it only made sense that he would and should delve into designing his own gear and he did, that too for Versace.”
Adds Nakul “I definitely dig the Versus collection Zayn has designed, so much so that I now own several items of the collection including the ZXV Bomber in Wine, ZXV Bomber Trench, Eco-Leather Biker Jacket, ZXV Active Jacket (that I modeled in) and the ZXV Printed Sweatshirt. Yes, as you can tell, I love the jackets. For me, the jackets are the highlight of the collection. They look great, stylish and the range of jackets means you’ve got a wide selection perfect for any and every occasion. The eco-leather biker jacket is one of my favourites, the Versus design on the back and on the sleeve looks very aesthetically pleasing, it works.”
And finally, Nakul tells us, “I think the Zayn x Versus collection has a bit of something for everybody no matter how you like to dress. It has subtlety if that’s what you want, it has edgy if that’s what you want, if you want to be a little out there, there’s that kind of thing available too. It’s a perfect, very well thought out collection that appeals to a mass market and tastes of all kind. Very rarely do you get a collection that has so much variety in style yet delivers on all fronts, this collection achieves that, it hits the nail on the head. The quality and detail is clear for all to see, Versace is Versace after all, they’ve always been fashion leaders and icons and they continue to be with their latest endeavor with Zayn. Well done Versace, well done Zayn.”
