Gender-fluid designer Harris Reed has partnered with Missoma for an opulent range of romantic, gothic-inspired jewellery
With its pieces spotted around the necks and on the fingers of everyone from the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle to Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, ミソマ is undoubtedly the darling of the demi-fine jewellery world.
Part of the widespread appeal of the brand lies in its history of pushing the boundaries of what you’d typically expect from a classic jewellery line – and not just in terms of its affordable price point. It’s known for daring to be different and producing creative, unexpected pieces outside of the world of basic hoops and huggies (although you’ll find plenty of great versions of those on its ウェブサイト, あまりにも).
十一月に 2020, Missoma launched its first men’s capsule collection, demonstrating its “jewellery for everyone” ethos loud and clear, and now the brand has partnered with gender-fluid designer Harris Reed, one of the biggest and most interesting names in the world of fashion right now.
Central Saint Martins graduate Reed may only be 25, but his list of notable achievements reads like the CV of someone decades beyond his years. He’s modelled for Gucci, dressed A-listers including Harry Styles, Solange and Ezra Miller, been profiled by 流行 そして ハーパーズバザー, and teamed up with Mac for its first-ever gender-fluid collection of cosmetics earlier this year.
The partnership with Missoma marks Reed’s debut into the world of jewellery, and exemplifies the signature “baroque romanticism” that he’s known and admired for. Among the influences for his pieces, he lists flea market trinkets, the symbolic dual-gender butterfly (a frequent motif throughout the designs) and even the elaborate ceiling of London’s Royal Opera House.
But though the reference material may be extravagant, Reed notes that the offering is far more accessible in terms of budget than his typical couture.
“Not everyone can buy a Harris Reed gown. But they can have a Harris Reed x Missoma gold necklace or ring to keep for years and years to come,」と彼は言います. “This is my way of being able to give everyone a little bit of the Harris Reed fantasy.”
Part dreamy and decadent, part edgy and gothic, the 64-piece edit spans Missoma’s fine and demi-fine offering, and showcases blue sapphires, conflict-free white and black diamonds and iridescent labradorite gemstones for the ultimate in opulent chic. Each precious stone is set in either 14ct gold, gold vermeil or sterling silver, with maximalist heavy metals like chunky chain-link and signet rings nestled in harmony alongside finer, more delicate options.
