Adele Wears Harris Reed’s First Search for Nina Ricci

Harris Reed debuted his first search for Nina Ricci on none apart from Adele.

The singer wore a custom look from the newly minted creative director on stage during her “Weekends With Adele” concert Saturday night in Las Vegas.

She wore an off-the-shoulder gown in black velvet, with voluminous circle sleeves in black tulle, with sequin polka dot embroidery and Swarovski crystals. The singer’s name was embroidered inside in a scrolling pink script.

“I’m honored to decorate any person that completely embodies, magnifies and shines with true femininity. Adele wears a hand embellished polka dot gown, the polka dot being a powerful Nina Ricci archival brand code,” Reed said in an Instagram post. The dress is the primary custom VIP search for the brand in five years.

The 26-year-old was appointed creative director of the home in September, and can debut his first runway show during Paris Fashion Week in February.

He has promised a “magnified femininity” at Nina Ricci, which he teased Saturday night. He called Adele “eternally inspiring” and said the robe is a “small nod of what’s to return.”

“It’s hard to place into words what this moment means to me. It often feels as if the whole culmination of my life’s work has led me to this moment. I’m so proud and humbled to be working with my amazing Nina team and each single person along the way in which who has helped me get thus far,” he continued. Reed thanked Adele and stylist Jamie Mizrahi for supporting his profession from the very starting.

“Should you would have told me after I was a primary 12 months at CSM [Central Saint Martins] that I’d be dressing Adele because the creative director of Nina Ricci, I never would have been capable of fathom the trail that got me here. The experiences I’ve had, the opportunities I’ve gotten, all of the exertions, long days, sleepless nights and tears of joy. The ride has been incredible and I can’t wait to see the way it continues to unfold.”

The American-British Reed is the youngest designer to take up the Nina Ricci reins, and is thought for his demi-couture gender-fluid designs with daring and theatrical silhouettes before his appointment.

Since graduating from London’s Saint Martins in 2020, Reed has quickly gained a fame for daring and theatrical silhouettes that play perfectly onstage. He has worked on sets and live performances with Sam Smith and Adam Lambert, and his designs even have been worn by Harry Styles and Lil Nas X.
