How does a fashion brand with a rich archive of wares manage the problem of deadstock fabrics that cost a pretty penny to acquire? Either let them sit pretty on the shelves until it gets mouldy which automatically seals its fate or give Harris Reed a call. In the case of Etro, it has wisely chosen to exercise the latter option. Reed is in the business of doing something not many designers do, churning out critically acclaimed genderless demi-couture with seeming ease. Applying their upcycling finesse on Etro’s archival fabrics, Reed has recreated pussy bow silk blouses previously designed for the likes of Harry Styles, Troye Sivan, and Ezra Miller. From floral paisley to glitter patterns, each version is obviously limited and won’t be getting a second run.
