How a J.W. Anderson cardigan went viral on TikTok, thanks to Harry Styles
Harry Styles and J.W. Anderson unintentionally made TikTok magic, after the performer wore a multi-color cardigan from the brand, which inspired people to recreate the look and share the results on the platform. It's brought a lot of attention to not just the design and the outfit, but also to the British brand, Vogue Business reports. "This is a great example of how TikTok creators showcased their crafty skills and expressed their fandom for Harry Styles's iconic looks, in this case, his trendy J.W. Anderson patchwork sweater," Cece Vu, fashion content partnerships lead at TikTok, told the publication. Styles's stylist, Harry Lambert, added: "What I have learnt is that Harry's fans are really creative; I regularly see them recreating looks inspired by his outfits and now some have learnt a craft to do this. This brings me so much joy [and] I have never seen it on this scale before." {Vogue Business}
