Pyer Moss announces return to runway after hiatus
Following a two-year absence, Pyer Moss, the New York-based fashion brand led by Kerby Jean-Raymond has revealed that it will be returning to the runway on the second weekend of September.
Presented in September 2019, the label’s last show was hosted at Kings Theatre, in Jean-Raymond’s native Flatbush, Brooklyn, and was the third and final installment of “American, Also.”, a series exploring the issue of the erasure of African American narratives in popular culture.
The show, which featured live musical performances and attracted some 3,000 guests, including industry insiders, celebrities and fans, was seen by many as one of the highlights of the New York season.
The news of the brand’s runway comeback follows on the heels of the CFDA’s announcement that next season’s New York Fashion Week, which will take place from September 8 through 12, will see the return of a more complete calendar of physical shows.
Founded by Jean-Raymond in 2013, Pyer Moss has amassed a dedicated fan base, which includes U.S. vice president Kamala Harris, who wore a tailored camel coat by the brand to the Covid-19 memorial service on the eve of this January’s presidential inauguration.
The label, which is known for its social activism, won the CFDA Fashion Fund Award in 2018 and was named CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year in 2020.
As well as leading his own brand, Jean-Raymond has served as global creative director at Reebok since 2020, having first teamed up with the sportswear brand for a collaborative collection in 2018.
In 2020, he also partnered with French luxury conglomerate Kering to launch Your Friends in New York, a platform conceived to empower the next generation of innovators.
