“Vogue” Interview

“When I first moved in, I was staying here on a mattress for about six months. I didn’t really want to do anything to it. I just liked the way it felt. . . there was nothing to really hold onto.” Would you ever guess that these were the words of Zayn Malik, singer, heartthrob, and current Vogue cover star? We certainly would not have, at least until now. Sounding off on everything from fashion to fame to his current living situation, Zayn gave Vogue a look inside his home studio on a recent afternoon.

“The studio is kind of like what I always envisioned my bedroom to be like as a child, but couldn’t quite ever afford,” Zayn says. A cursory glance around quickly reveals that the space is indeed brimming with possessions that a younger Zayn would likely have approved of. Supreme stickers are seen repeatedly, while a black and yellow speaker set is layered with sticker depictions of everyone from Mario to Bart Simpson. In another corner, a figurine of Toy Story’s Slinky Dog can be glimpsed.

Nearby, a collage that started off small now takes up an entire wall. (“What I initially thought was, I’m going to put some posters in frames, I’m going to paint them. . . . I never ended up doing that,” Zayn admits.) And not far from there, a coffee table has been creatively filled with Zayn’s personal comic book collection. “They were in a safe somewhere,” Zayn explains. “They had cobwebs and stuff on them. We just decided to take them out and put them in the coffee table.”

A creative use of an almost forgotten set of possessions. But as Zayn says of all the items here, they are “little bits of me.”

Zayn Covers “Vogue”

Midway through Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, a startling transformation takes place: Our hero, Duke Orlando, awakens from a seven-day slumber to find that he has switched genders. “Orlando had become a woman,” Woolf writes, “but in every other respect, Orlando remained precisely as he had been. The change of sex, though it altered their future, did nothing whatever to alter their identity.”

He becomes they. The pronouns shift, but the person remains the same. Woolf’s words, written in 1928, could easily be mistaken for a manifesto posted yesterday on Tumblr, the preferred platform for the growing cohort of “fluid” young people who, like Orlando, breezily crisscross the XX/XY divide. Fashion, of course, has taken note of the movement, which is sufficiently evolved to boast its own pinups, including Jaden Smith, recently the star of a Louis Vuitton womenswear campaign, and androgynous Chinese pop star (and Riccardo Tisci muse) Chris Lee. But where, exactly, is someone neither entirely he nor she meant to shop? And how, exactly, is such a person to be defined?

“They don’t want to be defined,” says Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, one of the many designers taking inspiration from the trend. “You see boys wearing makeup, girls buying menswear—they are not afraid to be who they are. This category or that category—who cares? They want to define themselves.”

When Donatella Versace Met Zayn

For Versus, the Versace contemporary line, Donatella Versace turned to Zayn Malik, a singer and former member of One Direction, as lead designer. At our request, Mr. Malik and Ms. Versace exchanged emails about the collection, which includes zip-up bombers, distressed jeans and brash logo T-shirts.

Zayn Malik: I feel like we came together through so many different people who are involved in each of our lives. What initially inspired this collaboration?

Donatella Versace: For me, Versus has always been a laboratory where we can experiment, be daring, try something new. Music and rebellion have been at the heart of the brand since the beginning. It made perfect sense to collaborate on this collection with you.

ZM: To me it feels like you and the brand were always in my consciousness. I remember all of the kids at school talking about it. So why choose me as your collaborator over someone else?

DV: Everyone knows you are an incredible talent. You’re also intelligent, a deep thinker and someone who sees creativity in everything you do, so it was a natural fit. You truly have such an amazing eye for the details that make a garment and for the pieces your friends want to wear. I was impressed by your ability to mix together utility pieces with sportswear, to play with proportions and to customize things and make them your own. It became an important theme in the collection.

Zayn For Clash 104

As announced earlier today, ZAYN (AKA Zayn Malik) is the fourth and final cover star of the latest issue of Clash. Though currently available to order (here, in case you were wondering), the magazine won’t hit stores until next week, but rather than keep you waiting with just a steamy cover pic for company, Clash is treating you to a teaser extract from the cover story itself.

Speaking with Clash’s Editor-In-Chief, conversation largely focused on the further development of ZAYN as a solo artist as he continues to redefine himself following his liberation from the creatively stifling conditions of One Direction. We find him in New York where he’s wrapping up his second album, mindful of the commercial and critical success of its predecessor – 2016’s sex-dominated ‘Mind Of Mine’ – and considering the progress he’s made since.

Talk turns to the work/life balance, chilling with his girlfriend, his recent collaboration with Versace and his new life in LA… But all of that is yet to come – be patient! In the meantime, here is a sneak peek at a little of what you can expect…

You’ve spoken before about how you feel like your evolution as a songwriter only really began to develop after leaving the band. How do you think you’ve changed in the space of time between your debut album and this new one?

Even though it has been a short space of time, I think you can definitely be able to see a progression in my writing – well, I’m hoping so, anyway. But I feel that way when I listen to it: I feel like there’s definitely a bit more organisation with things, if that’s the way to explain it. Things kind of make a bit more sense to me. I feel like on the first record things were a bit experimental – I was just trying to find my feet – and with this one, I feel like I’ve found that pocket a little bit more and it’s a bit more developed. I’m just a bit more organised and a bit more structured with the way I’m songwriting now, I think.

Evening Standard Interview

Zayn Malik has gone from 1D teen heart-throb to Renaissance man. As his debut collection with Versus Versace launches, he talks power pairings and being raised a British Muslim.

In a cavernous, sun-filled loft apartment in New York’s SoHo, two members of Zayn Malik’s management are planning a rooftop barbecue. “We can’t exactly take him to a park”, one points out. “That wouldn’t end well”.

Because there’s being famous, and then there’s being Zayn, a 24-year-old from Bradford for whom few parks are now accessible without extensive security measures.

“It’s a really weird world”, Malik attests in his flat-vowelled Yorkshire burr, rich and thick as a well-steeped brew. “I don’t think there’s anywhere I could be anonymous now”.

A former member of One Direction, Malik is now a megastar in his own right. His deliriously catchy first solo album, Mind of Mine, debuted at No 1 in both the UK and US charts in March 2016, and has now chalked up a mind-boggling one billion downloads on Spotify.

He’s in New York finishing the final songs on his forthcoming second album, which is pretty certain to go stellar too. And snagging the requisite supermodel girlfriend, in the form of 22-year-old Gigi Hadid, has further compounded Malik’s value as prized paparazzi fodder and target of obsessive fandom.

“In New York [where Hadid is based], you can sometimes get out in the early hours of the morning for a walk”, he says. “But there’s no underground parking here, no escape routes. So they’re going to get pictures, they’re going to find you. In LA [his own usual US base], it’s more catered to these things — you’ve got back entrances and that”.

Having joined 1D at just 17, this somewhat predatory level of fame — Beatlemania with added iPhones — is the only adult life Malik has known, which makes it all the more remarkable how charmingly ordinary he still manages to be. He saunters across the loft space to greet me, languid and mellow, and settles beside me on the large, low cream sofa. I’d prepared myself for his disarming prettiness but in person it’s still enormously distracting, with eyelashes that would seem to have been grown for another, much larger creature, fluttering over velvety brown eyes.

In 1D, who found fame via The X Factor and were managed by Simon Cowell, the aesthetic was tightly controlled and engineered for mass teen appeal. “My main rebellion was growing my beard and refusing to shave”, Malik giggles.

Today, he describes his look as “don’t-give-a-s*** aesthetic” but he’s being wildly disingenuous. Clad entirely in black — jeans, boots, T-shirt — with an array of silver man-jewellery and sporting a carefully tended covering of facial fur, today his frequently changing hair is shaved at the sides and pulled into a tiny man-bun on top. If anyone can pull off a man-bun, it’s Malik. His arms and hands are almost entirely covered in tattoos, and an elaborate ram’s skull peeks up out of the V of his T-shirt.

Now a regular feature on the front row at fashion shows, it’s little surprise that he has teamed up with Versace to produce a capsule collection for the label’s diffusion line Versus, released today.

“I’d wanted to do something in fashion for a while, even if it was just to bring out a couple of T-shirts so we just thought, ‘why not do it with somebody that’s got experience and knows what they’re doing?’ You can’t f*** with Versace”, he observes.

He reaches for a packet of cigarettes on the table, then hesitates. I urge him to carry on. “Would you like one?” he asks, hopefully. I would. “Good”, he beams, looking delighted. “Let’s ‘ave a cig. A cig and a chat”. My inner teen faints and falls off the sofa.

He’s creative director for the collection, which comprises 10 pieces each of men’s and womenswear. “I did sketches and drawings but a lot of the looks came from what I wear every day”, he explains. “It’s my brand and their brand coming together”.

Did Gigi, who has her own collection with Tommy Hilfiger, help him with the women’s collection? He sucks on his cigarette, and twinkles. “I didn’t want to say but yeah”, he nods, exhaling. “She’s very good, and she definitely assisted me”.

Cosily, Hadid’s younger sister, Bella, also a model, is the face of the Zayn x Versus women’s collection. Their mother, Yolanda, herself a former model, now stars in the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I suggest that having a partner so well versed in fame and celebrity must help him navigate its choppy waters. “Oh yes, definitely — she gets it, she’s very understanding”, he says. “But I can understand how it can look, that you’ve got these two people in a ‘power couple'”. He looks uncomfortable even saying the words. “That’s not something I want to be a part of”, he continues. “I’m with her because I like her and I hope she’s with me because she likes me. When we come home, we don’t really talk about that s**t. We just spend time together as a normal couple, cook food, watch TV, have a laugh.

“I’ve got into a thing of cooking pies recently,” he says, proudly. “I cook a mean chicken and sweetcorn pie, with Alfredo sauce. I make my own pastry, roll it out and everything”.

Malik grew up in the working-class Bradford neighbourhood of East Bowling, where his father, Yaser, a British Pakistani and fitness instructor turned househusband, raised their four children — Zayn and his three sisters — while his wife, Tricia, who converted to Islam when she married Yaser, worked as a chef.

Their only son is now the most high-profile British Muslim in the entertainment industry (though actor Riz Ahmed is quickly gaining ground). “I take a great sense of pride — and responsibility — in knowing that I am the first of my kind, from my background”, he says. “I’m not currently practising but I was raised in the Islamic faith, so it will always be with me, and I identify a lot with the culture. But I’m just me. I don’t want to be defined by my religion or my cultural background”.

When he travelled frequently to the US in the early days of 1D, however, he was given no such luxury, subjected to intense security checks and “further processing” simply by virtue of his name and ethnicity. “The first time I came to America, I had three security checks before I got on the plane; first they said that I’d been randomly selected, and then they said it was something to do with my name, it was flagging something on their system…” he raises one of his lustrous eyebrows. “Then when I landed, it was like a movie. They kept me there for three hours, questioning me about all kinds of crazy stuff. I was 17, my first time in America, jet-lagged off the plane, confused. The same thing happened the next time too”.

He relates all this in his characteristic laid-back manner. “I understand the level of caution that needs to be taken, especially now, in the light of certain events at home”, he says. “I don’t think there’s any benefit to getting angry — it’s something that comes with the climate. I understand why they’ve got to do it”.

The widespread radicalisation of young second- and third-generation British Muslims, however, baffles Malik entirely. “I don’t know how to figure out the psychology of why people do it. And I don’t know the remedy for it”, he sighs, lifting his long, skinny, tattooed arms skywards. “I just wish people had more love and care and compassion for other human beings”.

Clearly a sensitive soul, Malik has spoken before of the crippling anxiety disorder that led him to cancel live shows. “It’s not a thing that you just get rid of overnight but it’s getting to a much more manageable place”, he says today. “I think it came from a lack of confidence, just a sense of disbelief [sic] in myself”. Going solo has helped. “You have a certain sense of control, which is nice”, he says. “And I’m more confident in my ability and what I want to give to my fans. I can think of people coming out to see me perform as a positive thing now, rather than something I am dreading”.

This is good news, given that once the new album is released, he’ll be touring it to death worldwide. “Or I might just enter The Great British Bake Off”, he grins, before promising me a steak and potato pie the next time we meet. Sadly, I’ve got a feeling the baking might soon have to take a back seat for a while.
