Saeed Jones is the author of the memoir HOW WE FIGHT FOR OUR LIVES, winner of the 2019 Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction and the poetry collection PRELUDE TO BRUISE, winner for the 2015 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry. His poetry and essays have appeared in the New Yorker, New York Times, Oxford American and GQ among other publications.
This Pride, renowned writer and poet Saeed Jones is thrilled to partner with personal-care brand Harry’s on a journey that brings the artist’s passion for exploring the intersection of identity, power, and legacy to consumers’ daily routines.
The partnership contains a limited-edition Shave Set, for which Jones has crafted an exclusive poem, titled “Repeat After Me,” exploring the beauty of introspection and poetry’s power to serve as a mantra and a mirror through which we find our unique and inherent value. The reflective box, which features an iridescent handle, and a selection of Harry’s grooming essentials, invites people to take in Jones’s words, while simultaneously engaging with a reflection of themselves.
Recognising the critical role that access to care plays in each individual’s journey to self-reflect, this year, Harry’s continues their work to provide the LGBTQ community with ongoing support and access to mental health resources.
For each set sold, Harry’s is donating £5 to their longtime partner Albert Kennedy Trust, with an additional £10K donation to support AKT’s Rainbow Starter Packs (helping young people into independent living).
The limited-edition set launches at Harrys.com on 24th May and is priced at £32
