The Making Of: Harris Reed x Missoma

The Making Of:
Harris Reed x Missoma

Explore the meaning behind the symbols in the collection below, and immerse yourself in the creative world of Harris Reed x Missoma.

When our founder Marisa first met gender-fluid fashion designer Harris Reed years ago, they both knew it was a serendipitous encounter.

Conversations followed about what would happen if you took Harris’s vision and made it accessible by creating jewellery for everyone? Harris Reed x Missoma is a collection that brings together Harris’s love of flea market trinkets and whimsical inspirations with Missoma’s cult-status layering pieces.

A feat considering it was conceptualised during lockdown, with ideas and samples transported between Harris and Missoma’s London studio via Zoom and bike messengers. Personal and poignant, its gothic and romantic themes and symbols take from ‘the old world’ and stand for the future as new heirlooms of fluidity and inclusivity.

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.

Behind the Symbols

[inline-img]

The Serpent

A totem of rebirth, the serpent symbolises shedding the skin of our preconceptions – the ultimate example of the cycles of nature.

[inline-img]

The Butterfly

Flying in the face of tradition, the butterfly represents the beauty in self-expression. A transformative creature that embodies both genders and represents the journey to accepting the true versions of yourself.

[inline-img]

Moon & Stars

A celestial journey beyond this world into one of our own.

[inline-img]

Labradorite

A new gemstone for Missoma with iridescence that feels truly otherworldly.

[inline-img]

Hands

An icon of Georgian jewellery, always dramatic and ornate, clasped hands were used to represent friendship and love. With our hands we can link together and raise each other up high.

[inline-img]

Daggers

The dagger represents the cutting away of ignorance, a symbol of strength we can’t be without.

Two Faces

In Roman mythology, Janus was the god of doors, gates, and transitions. The two faces present on our bespoke coin ring.

Arrows

An arrow propels us forward, taking us towards the goals we set ourselves.
