Pyer Moss aims to use its voice and platform to challenge social narratives and evoke dialogue. The Pyer Moss collections are produced in New York City, Italy and Portugal.
Pyer Moss continues to redefine itself every season with collections and runways that combine storytelling, activism, debate, theatre and social commentary; all while using collaboration with artists and brands as a medium to further the dialogue around seasonal themes.
Pyer Moss is sold limitedly and in no particular schedule at exclusive high-end boutiques worldwide. In 2018, Pyer Moss launched its highly anticipated collection with Reebok named “Reebok by Pyer Moss” as part of their newly announced partnership with the footwear giant.
Blog response – it’s inspiring to see the worlds of fashion and politics fuse to create a positive statement. It exemplifies the impression fashion has on the world because they are using clothing as a tool to get younger people to vote and to bring awareness to the presidential election. Using limited edition clothes urges buyers to act quickly so that they may be apart of the exclusivity. That’s a great way to earn proceeds for the community because people love exclusiveness.
