Preview – Reiss Autumn / Winter 17

I was lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive preview of the Reiss Autumn / Winter 17 collection in London yesterday. It was quite fitting that it was a gloriously sunny day as I walked into their head office and onto the plush carpets for a first look at their Autumn / Winter range.

I was also intrigued to see a huge quote from one of my favourite writers and philosophers Albert Camus adoring the wall. I have always felt Reiss and I were a good fit, and this only went to underline that.



They have been quite brave this season, taking quite a departure from their traditional looks in certain areas. Amongst the coats and outwear there was an oversized trend which was really interesting and some quite urban feeling puffa and quilted looks and winter whites which is something they haven’t really explored before. A great example was this oversized white puffa, which I loved…


There was certainly a feeling of a more urban, youthful and street wear trend coming through, including a cap, slick and simple trainers and almost work wear type over shirts which almost had something of the Carhartt to them.

From a colour palette perspective new additions include rose teal in shirts and pullovers and also warm browns, both in suiting and also in a stunning leather jacket…


There are also of course some real Reiss classics, fantastic suiting as always and beautiful suede jackets, an absolute winter party staple for me. There is also the introduction of flat caps, to juxtapose the more street-wear pieces of the range.


It was a real pleasure to have a chance to preview the collection, so thank you to Reiss for the invite. The only bad bit of the day was that I ended up leaving a favourite Harrington jacket somewhere in London! Which I suppose means I had better look for another lightweight jacket, and this one looks perfect…



After “work” drinks…
