Dree Hemingway Looks Good in Just the Basics


Last season, Brianna Lance, the former head of Reformation, partnered with musician Freddie Cowan of The Vaccines and designer David Chambers to launch the menswear label Basic Rights. As the name implies, the clothes are elevated essentials, like t-shirts, trousers, and button downs made with high-quality, tailored Japanese fabrics. Due to popular demand, the duo made the collection unisex this season. “We had so many requests from all the girls I know for the clothes in their size, or just permission to wear them,” said Lance. “I think girls just wanted to be a part of the brand, but we are so new that rather than making a completely different collection, it seemed like the right move at this time was to expand our sizes.” For the lookbook, they cast friend Dree Hemingway and the handsome model-slash-interior designer Brett Robinson, who romp around together like Claire Danes and Patrick Wilson for Gap à la 2007. “Dree honestly was shot in the clothes because she stopped by to say ‘hi’ and bring us coffee when we were shooting the men’s retail,” revealed Lance. “It was a very happy accident.” See all the photographs by Stuart Winecoff, here.
