Zayn Malik's acting skills impress in his music video for Dusk Till Dawn

A grey and white striped suit from the spring/summer 2017 Salvatore Ferragamo menswear collection was the outfit worn by Zayn Malik in his music video for Dusk Till Dawn — a new tune sung in collaboration with Sia.

Sporting bleached-blond hair, abstract ink and layered necklaces, the British-Pakistani singer mysteriously tromps through Chinatown with a briefcase and recklessly drives a Jaguar as part of some elaborate heist scheme in the music video.

Throughout, he wears the relaxed Ferragamo suit, paired with a red and navy tropical-print shirt by SSS World Corp (a new label headed by former creative director at Brioni and ex-fashion director at My Theresa, Justin O'Shea).

Though the styling may look off-kilter, it reflects a trend that will be carrying into spring/summer 2018 too. The Hawaiian-inspired shirt, after all, was paraded abundantly on the Paris runways this past June, incorporated into the menswear collections of Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith and more.

If you're a style-conscious man looking to replicate Malik's look in real life, consider losing the blazer and clunky chains, and opt for a non-patterned trouser to complement your tropical shirt.
