Zayn Malik's collection with Versus Versace mixes grunge with athleisure

"In New York (where Gigi is based), you can sometimes get out in the early hours of the morning for a walk". So they're going to get pictures, they're going to find you.

"The first time I came to America, I had three security checks before I got on the plane", he told the Evening Standard.

Though Malik has fronted for the brand since his collaboration was announced last October, including a Versus campaign which was photographed by model slash shutterbug Gigi Hadid (who is also Malik's girlfriend of over a year) the collection which dropped Monday is his official design debut. In LA [his own usual United States base], it's more catered to these things - you've got back entrances and that.

Acknowledging that recent terror attacks in London and Manchester have contributed to an already existing environment of heightened airport security, Malik said, "I understand why they've got to do it".

He also revealed that Gigi has "assisted" him with his latest capsule collection for Versace's diffusion line, and said that despite their label of "power couple", the pair share a very normal relationship. "I'm her biggest supporter and she's my biggest supporter".

"I understand the level of caution that needs to be taken, especially now, in the light of certain events at home", he conceded. "We just spend time together as a normal couple, cook food, watch TV, have a laugh".

He said: "I didn't want to say but yeah".

The pair's ability to enjoy each other's company away from the shutter bugs is something Gigi herself has mentioned previously, admitting her British boyfriend has sparked off her new-found addiction for Heinz Baked Beans, tea and butter chicken. "Thanks so much to Donatella Versace for allowing me to do the coolest thing ever".
