The Reiss SS17 women’s collection strikes the perfect balance between classic and contemporary style, offering design-led pieces that nod to the trends depicted by this season’s runway presentations. There’s a utility influence that feels particularly prominent in shirting designs, with silk fabrications in variations of khaki setting the tone for a relaxed daytime aesthetic. Later in the season ruffles and tiered silhouettes prevail, welcoming a modern romance just in time for the start of spring. Tailoring too, takes a statement turn, with oversized cuts referencing vintage designs and a fresh colour palette keeping the overall aesthetic relevant. Bags become a strong focal point, imagined in varying sizes and crafted using premium Italian leather. The result is something beautifully luxurious yet loaded with everyday appeal.
For SS17 Reiss menswear explores the diversity of the modern man’s wardrobe, presenting fresh, new ways to dress both off-duty and at work. Tailoring feels relaxed and has been designed to be mixed and matched, giving a traditional craft an innovative spin. Meanwhile, muted brights, reinvented denim, bold stripes and diverse prints give off-duty dressing a spirited and explorative feel. As always, quality runs throughout the collection with each piece offering affordable luxury that has been designed to stand the test of time.
