21-year-old American designer Reese Cooper continues to add to his impressive list of global retailer partners with the debut of his eponymous line at Barneys New York. Reese Cooper (@reesecooper / @reesecooperinc) will make the debut on the floor of Barneys New York with the release of the brand’s Pre-Fall 2019 Collection “Against the Wind,” which was commissioned exclusively by Barneys as part of their XO Collections. “Against the Wind” will be available at Barneys New York Madison Avenue, Barneys New York Copley Place, and Barneys New York Beverly Hills locations as well as online at barneys.com starting April 25th, 2019.
The “Against the Wind” collection is Cooper’s personal metaphor for fighting for his young brand to continue to grow – both in the sense of backend business and in the more intangible sense of growing respect of the industry as a valid and competitive designer. It’s also a continued narrative on his exploration of California’s remote, dusty towns. The collection features new iterations of the brand’s most popular silhouettes like a classic varsity jacket, straight leg twill trousers, cotton twill work jackets featuring the brand’s signature metal hook detailing, and heavy-weight hoodies and t-shirts that feature artwork inspired by the designer’s travels through the Californian landscape, which serve to tie together his experiences, fantasies, and metaphors for his work and life.
A multi-disciplined artist, Reese Cooper is a storyteller. Recently named as one of the “Top 10 Emerging Brands” by Hypebeast and “The One to Watch” by Highsnobiety, Reese Cooper continues to grow a cult following for his brand as he documents his explorations and personal experiences with each of his collections across menswear, womenswear, and accessories. From fashion to photography, film to events, each project or collection tells a story – some fact, some fiction – woven together through powerful imagery and messaging all underpinned by precision detail.
