Harris Tapper is focussing on a singular pillar of style — the shirt.
The shirt is a time-honoured, sartorial staple that elegantly traverses the line between feminine and masculine. Undoubtedly a piece deserving precedence in one’s wardrobe, it feels appropriate that new label, Harris Tapper, is bringing it firmly into focus.
Marrying the instant gratification of fast fashion with sustainable production Harris Tapper, started by fashion industry veterans Sarah Harris and Lauren Tapper, is creating a unique niche for itself. With designs that focus exclusively on women’s shirting, the brand aims to deliver fresh styles every month, discarding the traditional rules of fashion that dictate seasonal collections. It is an intriguing deviation from convention, that reveals an innate understanding of the market as well as a smart capitalisation on the rising popularity of fast-paced, runway-to-retail operation.
Launching today with a 12-piece collection that offers timeless, classic shapes, alongside bold, experimental pieces, Harris Tapper is made entirely in New Zealand and will inevitably come to take pride of place in any curated closet.
