Harris Reed, a rising designer, is aiming to increase loungewear’s popularity with the launch “Fluid Basics”, a collection of gender-fluid wardrobe staples that can be worn off-duty.
“Fluid Basics” will launch in this month. It features seven staples such as tanks, T-shirts and blazers, as well as a shirt and shirt.
Harris Reed released the following statement in response to the launch: “I wanted the world of Harris Reed to be more accessible by creating a more wearable collection for those who want their fluid fantasy to come true every day.
“I reimagined wardrobe staples and created something completely new and Harris Reed. My message is furthered by Fluid Basics. I fight for fluidity’s beauty.”
Reed explains that fashion’s future is about creating a fluid world to inhabit. The new collection will be available at Matchesfashion and Bergdorf Goodman.
T-shirts and tanks have been reinvented with new label placements that are inspired by vintage corsets as well as the idea of gathering and ruching. A French terry jacket with wide 70’s-inspired lapels can be worn as a robe by being wrapped around and tied with matching flared jersey pants. This is a laid-back version of Reed’s signature flared suits.
The seven-piece collection of neutral-coloured loungewear is completed by a cotton-cashmere poet t-shirt.
This collection is a new direction for British-American Central Saint Martins Graduate, who was first recognized after dressing Harry Styles in a concert and closing London Fashion Week in September with his demi couture collection of monochrome wedding-inspired looks.
Prices range from 111 to 276, / 128- 318 US Dollars / 128- 318 Euros.
