London’s HARRI knows how to make fashion viral. In 2020, the London College of Fashion graduate debuted their first line with APOC Store, before going on to explore the world of inflatables and latex with a sculptural showcase during London Fashion Week SS23. Since, HARRI’s work has been worn by the likes of Sam Smith for their BRIT Awards look, and now you too can get your hands on the designer’s viral SS23 collection.
Comprising four pieces — two tank tops and two pairs of trousers — the collection is made entirely from latex and questions everything from the decoding of gender constructs to the norms of conformity. By blowing the pants up, or sucking the latex in on a tank top, HARRI delivers clothing that eschews conventional silhouettes and gender roles, instead allowing the wearer to play with their proportions and identity.
You’ve probably seen the trousers before, but something new for many of us are HARRI’s Draped Latex Trousers, arriving in a vivid shade of yellow just in time for summer. They are semi-sheer and sit on the waist with a heavy drop, adding a relaxed, almost streetwear-tinged touch to the brand’s offerings. Likewise, tank tops arrive with a twist, coming with square necklines and a straight hem.
Take a look at HARRI’s SS23 range above, and purchase the pieces from retailers such as H.LORENZO now. Prices range from $339 USD to $2,039 USD.
