TOP 10: INDEPENDENT CINEMAS

22.10.14

Inspired by the Royal Opera House’ Live Cinema Series, we’ve rounded up our top 10 independent cinemas.

Showing everything from art house and avant-garde, to blockbusting seat fillers, although these cinemas may offer a whole wealth of genres, they all have one thing in common; run-of-the-mill they are most certainly not.

For your chance to win £1000 of Reiss clothing, a night’s stay at The May Fair hotel and tickets to the Royal Opera House’ Live Cinema Season, enter our competition here.

To celebrate launch of Reiss’ AW14 outerwear collection, we’re asking key digital menswear influencers across the world how they would style Reiss coats and jackets to reflect their own personal style. We’re also asking our menswear influencers to reveal the secrets to their cold weather style.

For the series’ first instalment, we asked Mike of Quyen Mike - a London-based menswear blogger and photographer – what men’s cold weather style means to him.

Against London’s iconic backdrop, see how Mike interpreted our AW14 outerwear offering.

Behind-The-Scenes: Wonderland Film

17.10.14

Renowned fashion magazine, Wonderland, have shot an exclusive video – reminiscent of the French film noir during the 1960s – to showcase our AW14 collection. Shot in simple black and white – with a decidedly vintage-inspired feel – an intimate narrative between a young couple unfolds, sound tracked by lilting French dialogue.

Using a retro Super 8 camcorder, the male actor follows the female actor throughout the apartment – cutting quickly from one revealing shot to the next. Reversing roles, we then see the female actor as she becomes the director, and her male counterpart her muse, smoking a cigarette as he takes to the piano. Flitting between both points of view, each frame is a vivid portrayal of their intense relationship; going on to highlight certain aspects of their personalities.

Co-produced by Nick Thompson and James Willis, and styled by Kusi Kubi, the film takes place in Bethnal Green’s Town Hall hotel, the minimalist interior – think high ceilings, wooden panelled walls and ornate windows – providing the perfect backdrop to the unfolding love story.

Read on for our interview with Nick and scroll through our behind-the-scenes shots for a stylish insight into the film’s most memorable moments.

A finely tailored suit is one of the wisest wardrobe investments a man can make. Cut just so, it functions as a sartorial second skin, an armour of cloth, whether worn in the boardroom or at the bar.
