Reiss AW12 Collection For Women

Category : Reiss

Reiss have just released their Autumn/Winter 12 collection for women so in this blog post we look at the mood, feel and key looks.

Taking inspiration from the artistic and romantic to the strength and power of forties icons the new collection is sexy and minimalist for effortless chic. This season volume is the key with dropped shoulders and oversized shapes creating clean lines. Soft and ethereal woodland shades whisper over Autumn with icy blues and blush pinks making a return.

There is a truly relaxed approach to this collection wearing sequins with knits, leather with wool, and blurred prints on sheer silk all effortlessly thrown together.

Reiss Constance Casual Top. Constance in luxurious cream silk is a relaxed and fluid short sleeve style. In textured silk with a traditional shirt collar, this smart style also features rolled cuff sleeves, a peek-a-boo and single-button front, centre yoke back and stylish curved hem. Neat and cool – it’s the best of both worlds.

Reiss Aurelia Maxi Skirt. Aurelia in black is a free-flowing swishy maxi. Featuring inserted panels of blurred woodland print in mossy green, this full-length lined style is pleated at the waistband and secures with a concealed zip to the left side.

Reiss Eve Trouser. Eve in charcoal grey is a slim-fitting casual trouser. This sports-influenced style features contrasting black panels running down the outside of each leg and ankle zips to the inside. With side slit pockets and a narrow waistband with double belt loops, this casual trouser secures to the front with a single gunmetal button and fly zip fastening.

Reiss SS12 Womens Preview

Category : Reiss

We are really excited to be able to preview the Reiss SS12 collection for women which is inspired by 90s minimalism,  with references to the clean lines from past Calvin Klein campaigns, and the sex appeal and cut of vintage Jean Paul Gaultier.

Playing with proportions, fabrications and layering ensure that the clean lines of the 90s silhouettes feel fresh and modern. Layering separate items in new lengths creates a distinct softness and heralds a ‘new way of dressing,’ which is both feminine and wearable.

The injection of prints enhances this further, as sheer fabrications are overlaid on bold rainbow graphic prints. Prints of various colours are also pieced together or inserted with sheer panels.

Knitwear ranges from micro textures to chunky stitches, in chalky pastel tones and soft neutrals.

THE TRENDS

Structured tailoring and playful textures make up the essence of COQUETTE CHIC, where strong tailored silhouettes are created in heavy geo lace to give newness and power to occasion dressing.

The High Summer collection sees a nod to 40s POOLSIDE, as swimsuit pin up Ester Williams becomes the poster girl for this look. Holiday wardrobe favourites include: printed shorts, crop tops, sheer pleats a plenty and a hint of cheekiness with semi sheer dressing.

Mixing butter-soft leather biker jackets with fluid printed maxis, 1971 goes GLAM GRUNGE this season. Drawing inspiration from 90s supermodels, this story looks particularly to The Face’s early 1990s Kate Moss shoots by Corinne Day.

THE DETAILS

A study of PRINTS is evident this season. The journey begins organically with intricately hand drawn florals, which are repeated and distorted to give a more graphic illusion. Hand drawn birds are digitally printed onto smoky backgrounds and insect wings are blown up to become unrecognisable.

Watery abstracts and stripes feature later for a poolside vibe. Unusual coloured, almost snake-effect textures in print and burnout feel effortless, versatile and easy to wear. Clashing palm prints and botanicals are styled together for a playful juxtaposition.

Finally the collection is completed with a palette of irresistible neutral tones is complemented this season with pastel hues of mint and apricot. New depth is added with shades of auburn. Pops of aquamarine and citrus yellow feel fresh when used in prints and burnouts. Whites are layered together in soft sheer and structured fabrics, and then mixed with creams and metallics for a fresh and modern approach.
