Style Wise : Reiss SS 2012


I haven't exactly been the trendy sort for quite some time now. Instead I prefer to invest in classic well made pieces with details that make them special. I was instantly intrigued by the Reiss SS 2012 collection when I saw it described as fusing the simplicity of minimalist nineties style with the playfulness of 1940's poolside glamour. To me this sounds like a perfect marriage of tailoring and femininity and I'm finding myself drawn to these streamlined wearable shapes. I'm coveting the knee length Hula Fully Pleated Skirt (top left) with it's pretty sculpted scalloped waistband along with the sleek Bette Lace Jersey Cardigan on top. I'm loving the silhouette of the textured Lola Chunky Pointelle Jumper (bottom right) and the Percy Wide Leg Fluid Pant it's paired with. The elegant biker style Dahla Technique Luxe Jacket (bottom center) with the macramé collar is on my wish list as well. Actually my closet would welcome any and all of these pieces. Are there any looks here that speak to you? See more at Reiss

Love that dusty rose blouse of course, but really love a good cropped pant, which is tricky since I have long legs--I would definitely want to try on a pair -- such a great collection!

ShyScout said...

The outfit on the top left is perfection. I really do like the simplicity of all the pieces though - so pretty!

Shop N' Chomp said...

Love love love that first outfit and the second last one! I love minimalist style too. :D

Love these, I'm with you, I like classic pieces. I think these would fit perfectly in my closet. Wonderful finds!

I'm really impressed by this collection. I walk past the store dozens of times but never walk in. It's not until a fellow blogger (you)talks about it before I actually stop to look. I will have to check the clothes out the next time I'm in London.

mes bijoux said...

I could wear all the second and third line without any doubt. By the way, I didn't know this brand (and I think that you cannot find at Barcelona, but I will check the website...)
kisses!

I like how all these pieces are simple and interchangeable. The very first look is my favourite.

I'm not really familiar with this designer, but I agree with you about the top left and bottom right. I also like the tops on the bottom left.

I would love to add something to my closet from Reiss! These are all amazing pieces, however, I especially love left look in the 2nd row. That collarless leather jacket and dress is amazing!

This season looks fantastic.. I could definitely add the pleated skirt and the skirt in the top right photo to my wardrobe. Fortunately for me (but not for my bank balance) Reiss is just a short walk away now!

Jessi said...

I love the soft structure of the clothes and the clean lines. These are great pieces that probably go with everything! My favorites are the accordian skirt and that milk-chocolate-y brown leather jacket.
