Fashion wunderkind Harris Reed is bringing their vision to the jewellery world for the very first time.

In an exciting collaboration with fashion’s favourite jewellery brand Missoma, the collection will showcase Reed’s signature romantic-meets-gothic aesthetic, combined with Missoma’s classic appeal.

Speaking of the collaboration, Reed explained that they had total free reign on creativity, with the aim of blurring the preconceptions people have about gender and jewellery.

“Throughout this collaborative process, I was really able to let my creativity run free and able to dream as big as I could possibly dream," the designer said. "The story I hope to tell with this collection is to be your own light and define who you are through what you choose to explore.

"Using jewellery pieces, like I do with clothes and make-up, as the building blocks in your tool box to best express who you are, exploring your individuality and your fluidity.”

The 25-year-old Central St Martins graduate is a pioneer of gender-fluid design and beauty, whether that's creating looks for Harry Styles, Florence Welch, Miley Cyrus and Solange Knowles, or launching Mac Cosmetics’ first gender-fluid make-up line.

“Beauty is a tool that helps you realise the best version of yourself,” Reed previously told Bazaar. “You’re building up your identity and you’re building up your look. I think the playfulness and the open-mindedness that has happened over the years has completely altered the way I look at beauty.”

The designer wasn't born with the confidence they have today, and credits this to living in a progressive city like London. "If I want to rock a bright red glittery eye one day, I can do that – some people don’t have that safety," they said.

Reed's upcoming collaboration with Missoma launches in September 2021.
