Reiss Unveil Superb New Collection for SS12

I seriously need to start earning more money. Have you clocked the new collection for Spring &Summer at Reiss, Kate Middleton’s favourite high street store? Not that that’s why I love their clothes so much, although for a royal she is quite good at giving a major heads up and nod to what’s current and on trend, or dare I say it, starting a new trend? Whatever, I hadn’t really noticed Reiss before our Kate started wearing their clobber and that’s a fact. But the beautiful lines in their coat dresses, the simple cuts of their tops and blouses and the gorgeous fall of their trousers have really turned my head. Reiss appear to know how to celebrate the stylish woman, draping her in soon to be iconic pieces but always remaining classics. Here are my favourites from their new collection – swoon!

Isabeli – Leather Front Sleeveless Shirt in Aqua – £159

Reiss leather front sleeveless shirt. Isabeli in aqua is a retro-inspired leather shirt with contemporary overtones. This sleeveless style features a fitted leather front with neat slim collar and stylish concealed button placket. The front trim and voluminous back is in a sheer crinkle chiffon with a curved and on-trend dipped hem. This is stylish leather shirt looks great tucked into a micro pair of shorts for a statement summer look. Alternatively, team up with your favourite pair of skinny jeans or with a floor-sweeping maxi skirt to really channel your inner-Nineties girl.

Thora Printed Shift Dress in Ivory – £195

Reiss printed shift dress. Thora in luxe ivory is a printed front lace shift. The scoop neck, short-sleeved style features a hand drawn, digitally printed abstract floral design to the silky centre panel, while the rest of the style is a fine daisy-patterned lace. This romantic shift dress is beautifully light and summery. The soft colours in the illustrative print lift the design and offer a unique artistic touch. Pretty in fine daisy lace, it works for everyday with a cute pair of chain sandals or for smarter occasions with nude heels.

Crystal – Beaded Maxi Dress in Graphite – £245

Reiss beaded maxi dress. Crystal in graphite grey is a delicately beaded Twenties-influenced dress. This scoop neck, sleeveless column style features horizontal crystal beads and vertical pewter sequins to the front and back with a deep sheer hem and sexy side slits. A real Gatsby-inspired maxi, this statement occasion dress is the epitome of Twenties glamour. Team this louche and luxurious style with fellow gunmetal tones or cream and black, to keep your look as understated and uncluttered as possible.

Ziggy – Embroidered Jumpsuit in Caramel – £149

Reiss embroidered jumpsuit. Ziggy in delicious caramel is a short, retro-inspired playsuit.

Pair with similar tones for an understated look, go for black or bolder pops of pink or coral for a contrast or with metallics to add some after dark glamour.

Nimbi – Fit and Flare Dress in Bronzed Blush – £169

Nimbi textured knit dress in bronze has horizontal detail waistband, styled in a close fitting silhouette with v-neck detail and skirt which flares to the knee. A great option for that transition dress, wear with a softly structured jacket during the day but drop the formalities to stand-out later in the evening when the sun goes down.
