Harris Reed will follow Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh who departed earlier this year.
Per instagram Reed announced: “I am honoured and humbled to announce my appointment as the new Creative Director of the House of Nina Ricci across fashion and, following, fragrance. To be a 6’4” (without heels), red-headed, long haired fluid designer (who everyone thinks is a fabulous woman) who is unapologetically myself entering a brand I could have only ever dreamed of in Paris just leaves me full of excitement and love. I’m truly speechless… I have dreamed of this moment for so long, from the time I was a small child, through working my fingers to the bone at CSM, to now. This feels like something out of a movie, a storyline I might sit down and watch at the cinema. Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking these fantasies that felt so silver screen to me and turning them into a reality. I want to say a deep thank you to Puig and to José Manuel Albesa for this opportunity to bring the brand to incredible new heights.”
The appointment of the London-based designer, known for his gender-fluid creations and for being a renowned LGBTQ+ advocate, follows the recent arrival of Edwin Bodson to Nina Ricci’s as General Director Fashion & Beauty.
Harris Reed is wearing Haute Couture SS92 tulle gloves from Nina Ricci archives.
