Reese Cooper’s unique vision and quick ascension in the fashion world has made him one of the youngest and most respected designers of modern day. Born in Atlanta, raised in London, and currently living in Los Angeles where his work is created, Cooper combines the influences of his travels with the skills he obtained in each location, working behind the scenes in various fashion-related fields.
With each of his collections linked by a common thematic thread, Cooper’s work is presented from the perspective of a storyteller, composing new chapters every season for a continuing narrative showcasing his modern view of classic Americana.
With a primary focus on text and graphics, Reese Cooper’s designs are casual versions of essential apparel and accessories that take his elevated streetwear on a roundabout journey through the rural byways of the American experience.
Inspired by a photo taken of a helicopter dropping water onto a wildfire, this image became the focal point for this season’s collection and foundation for its color palette. Hues of the red fire retardant phos-chek and glowing amber are contrasted by the soft blues, lavender and greens.
