A preview of Reiss A/W 2011



I was going through the Reiss site last night and found some interesting clothes that are currently on sale. Since my friend Ingrid introduced me to online shopping, it’s made everything so much easier and attainable. Her site is connected to a few retailers that ship directly to the Philippines. Now that I have sponsors and ads on my site, I’m also looking at shopping some more. Reiss is a British brand that started 40 years ago selling men’s suits in Bishopsgate, London. Through the 80’s and 90’s the company grew and diverged but remained a UK menswear business. Now it has international stores and women’s clothing that has got the Duchess of Cambridge as a fan. And good news, you can now shop the women’s sale at Reiss US Online. Up to 50% off! While supplies last.

Reiss sent me a sneak peek of their Autumn Winter look book. I love the 70’s glamorous vibe of it all. Here are a few snippets from their press kit:

For Reiss’ 40th anniversary, its womenswear collection for AW11 takes inspiration from 70s luxury heritage brands: Gucci, Hermès and Halston. Muses include: Bianca Jagger for her iconic tailoring prowess, Diane keaton’s Annie Hall for her inimitable sense of style and Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger who effortlessly encapsulate old and new Glamour at its best.

ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS. In celebration of forty years, Reiss has created a limited edition collection. Clothing to cherish, the collection is symbolic of an uncompromising approach to fabrication, detailing and labour. 40th specials include: a sumptuous Alpaca Suri coat, luxury wool Mac, super-glam gold snakeskin bag and a gold textured sandal. Hand knits and hand draped evening gowns with a 70s heritage also add to the fray.
