Harris Reed named creative director at Nina Ricci
Harris Reed is about to shake up 90-year-old luxury brand Nina Ricci. The Los Angeles-born gender-fluid designer, who uses they/them pronouns, has been enjoying an ascent as one of London fashion’s most prominent talents as of late, and now Paris has come calling. Reed will join Nina Ricci (owned by Puig) as creative director and business chief while Edwin Bodson, commercial director at J.W. Anderson, is also heading to the brand in the role of general director. “I am truly excited to challenge the landscape of what femininity means across fashion and beauty in such an iconic house,” Reed said in a statement. The 26-year-old ‘demi-couture’ designer who’s amassed fans including Sam Smith, Iman (who could forget that Met Gala look!), Beyoncé, and Adele, and collaborated with the likes of Missoma and MAC, replaces Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh who exited the house in January after three years at the helm.
Mariah Carey and Chopard paint the town
In order to launch the Chopard X Mariah Carey collection and the Happy Butterfly X Mariah Carey collection, the needs-no-introduction performer recently joined the luxury brand for an intimate cocktail party in New York City. Fittingly, the event took place on the 25th anniversary of her seminal album, Butterfly. Carey was joined by Chopard co-president and artistic director Caroline Scheufele to toast to the collections and to showcase them in all their dazzling glory to the tastemakers and press in attendance at the Soho Grand Hotel. As per Chopard, “These collections are a natural extension of the creative universe of a singer who has become one of the most famous voices in the world over the decades. A symbol of metamorphosis, the butterfly is the dazzling emblem of the energy that has borne Mariah Carey to unprecedented longevity.” Take a peek at the collections below—we’ll have what Mimi’s having!
Brad Pitt unveils Le Domaine, a line of genderless skincare
Taking a leaf out of GP’s book—literally, as he revealed former girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow actually did teach him about self-care—Brad Pitt has launched Le Domaine. Tipped as a science-meets-nature line of genderless skincare essentials, the venture is a partnership with the Perrin family, who are also his partners in Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rose. As such, the brand takes its lead from grape-based antioxidants, particularly the homegrown ones on the family’s estates in Provence. Pitt exclusively told Vogue that over 15 years of research have gone into the products. Get ready to hear more about ‘GSM10’ which is an exclusive molecule in Le Domaine’s Serum, Cream, Fluid Cream, and Cleansing Emulsion that’s said to reduce the harmful effects of oxidative stress, while ‘ProGr3’ aims to keep skin cells healthier for longer in a bid to slow down the aging process. Ok back to Gwyneth! “I love what Gwyneth’s done [with Goop],” Pitt said. “She is still a really dear friend, and she has built this empire. She has always had that in her as a curator, and it’s been a lovely creative outlet for her. In fact, come to think about it, she was probably the first one who got me to even wash my face twice a day… maybe.”
