Harry Lambert Takes High Street With Vintage-Inspired Zara Collection

Before dressing Harry Styles for the Grammy Awards and fitting Emma Corrin into Miu Miu’s knit panties at the Venice Film Festival, Harry Lambert was a fashion-forward intern for British Vogue who spent his days searching Mayfair charity shops for vintage designer pieces.

“I didn’t have the money for any of it when I first moved to London and became interested in fashion. “I wanted to come into the office feeling amazing and like I was making an effort, even though it wasn’t the right time for me to buy a Prada shirt,” he says.

Those treasures from charity shops and the high street/designer collaborations that grew popular in the late 2000s, when Topman introduced young consumers to the likes of Caroline Massey, Meadham Kirchhoff, Christopher Kane, and JW Anderson, quenched Lambert’s thirst for high-end fashion.

Unveiling a capsule collection of his own for Zara, another massive high-street retailer, feels like a full-circle moment for Lambert because of this. “I was like, ‘This is my opportunity to design for myself 15 years ago,’ very selfishly,” he says. “The high street played a big role in helping me find my own style.”

His Cutie Chaos collection, which features retro cuts, ’70s-inspired shades, and quirky cartoon prints, was inspired by “trying to think of something that would look great on a T-shirt,” as Lambert puts it. “I had a huge mood board with historical allusions, including old toy card illustrations. I discovered these adorable yet nostalgic characters, and I’ve been carrying the bag—which is printed with an illustrated fox—around a lot. I intended for this collection to have an enjoyable element.

Lambert is also well aware of the environmental costs associated with high-street fashion’s overproduction and the issues that surround it. The 60 or so items in the Cutie Chaos collection are made mostly of recycled raw materials, including recycled cotton, polyester, nylon, wool, and lower-impact fibers because, as he puts it, “I wanted to make sure that we were being as responsible as possible.”

Lambert focused particularly on the finishes as well. Unlike high-street collections, which typically do not have covered buttons, this one does. Each piece had to be of exceptionally high quality because either the recipient would keep it forever or sell it.

The work of the Norwich-born stylist with his A-list clientele serves as an inspiration for Cutie Chaos, and fans of Harry Styles will recognize pieces such as the sweater vests and the oversized collars that seem custom-made for one of pop culture’s most renowned stylists.

Lambert laughs and says, “He has chosen a few pieces, Emma Corrin has too. But Harry is most excited for the fashion-forward teenagers who remind him of his younger self to get their hands on the collection, even though all of his powerful celebrity friends have already placed their orders. “What excites me the most is seeing Cutie Chaos for the first time in the wild.”
