“In a season where soft, feminine, vintage-inspired pieces contrast against sharp, clean, modern
shapes, AW14 places great importance on elegance and the art of dressing up. These beautiful
partnership might be a long, lean ’90’s-influenced suit worn with a lingerie-inspired camisole, or
a voluminous, pleated trouser which speaks of the ‘70s teamed with a luxe textural knit.” - REISS
A few weeks ago I had the immense pleasure of visiting the Reiss headquarters in London and speaking to the whole design team about the new A/W collection. They took me through the very beginning – the inspiration – which in its essence references the past, present, and future. From modern interpretations of designs from the ’70s, to modern architectural shapes, to a ’90s inspired pant suits, to the glamorous ’30s, the collection really takes the best of the best and ties it all together into one strong collection.
After talking with the design team (and seeing their design process – I mean, how cute is that bag mockup?!), I did a little tour of the office building (which also houses their flagship store downstairs). A beautifully designed building filled with beautifully designed clothing and beautifully charismatic people. What more could you possibly want? I’m really excited to able to share this collection with you. I tried on so many amazing pieces which I never wanted to take off. I’ve picked out some of my favourites below, but there’s so so many more! If Reiss is a brand you weren’t familiar with before, it’s one you should definitely check out as soon as possible. The fabrics, fit, and overall quality is so amazing, yet for a very reasonable price. And for those of you who already knew Reiss, it’s high time you go check out the new collection. You’ll be blown away!
