Inspired by his debut solo album Mind of Mine, and possibly the success of Kanye's Yeezy line, the former One Direction teen heartthrob has created a 23-piece-strong collection of tees, singlets, hoodies and bomber jackets for guys and girls.

"I wanted to approach this as an opportunity to extend my ideas as an artist, and to give fans another facet of who I am," Malik told Vogue.com. To that end, Urdu script from Malik's native Pakistan adorns many of the pieces, including a black silk bomber that on-again, off-again girlfriend Gigi Hadid has been spotted wearing this week. The Urdu words translate to 'Zayn' and 'Mind'.
