From the events and dates for your diary to the most coveted pieces which have arrived online, see what’s on Reiss HQ’s radar for March.
Our SS14 collection was inspired by travel and leisure, so it made perfect sense to ask Spanish-based menswear blogger Jeffrey Herrero to tell us about his favourite places to travel and his style for leisurely days spent off-duty.
Find out how Jeffrey spends his down time, and see what travel essentials that he put inside of our Channing men’s holdall.
Though, theoretically, March heralds the beginning of spring, the actuality of temperature and temperament often tells a different tale. Ever the optimistic types, we’re hoping that the start of the season will bring more sunshine and less showers – the ideal climate for getting out and exploring the various events that the month brings.
So, for cultural cheer in March read our guide to what to do, how to eat, what to see, and where to be seen.
At last! With the arrival of March, spring is nearly upon us. And as days get lighter, temperatures begin to rise and winter coats become increasingly redundant, we’re looking forward to the promise that the season brings – not least for spring fashion, and of course there’s the small matter of pancake day.
Here are just a few of our visual inspirations for the month ahead.
The character of SS14′s menswear collection speaks of a love of venture and leisure, of journey and destination. To showcase our favourite pieces and styling cues for SS14 we photographed our model alongside the iconic Café Racer motorbike.
And, though he didn’t take a starring role in the final fashion feature, as you’ll see below, our model’s inquisitive canine companion made quite the impression.
Here are our behind the scenes takes from the shoot.
For our SS14 menswear collection a desire to update the resort style of the halcyon days of continental café culture took the Reiss design team on a journey of inspiration with varied reference points.
One man whose dress sense made a lasting impression was Alain Delon, an enduring icon of both mid-twentieth century cinema and men’s style.
It wasn’t just the girls putting their most stylish foot forward for New York Fashion Week’s FW14 presentations, the men more than held their own too. Don’t just take our word for it though, see which stylish men we snapped on the ground in New York City.
Forget that temperatures may not be comfortably northerly on the thermometer just yet, and instead let the behind the scenes shots from our SS14 campaign transport you to the enviable setting of Toulon, France – a stone’s throw from the sparkling Riviera.
Under the Gallic sun our new collection came to life, and the following photographs provide a morsel of what to expect for the season ahead, capturing our SS14 vision coming to fruition.
SS14′s coats and jackets have arrived, offering a whole host of inspiring and exciting outerwear designs.
And, though all of the pieces feel relevant for the season ahead, each design is steeped in tradition. Read this week’s menswear diaries to discover our guide to men’s jackets, now and then.
February is for many, the month when we’re ready to start doing things again. If January was a bit ‘dry’ with diabolical bank balances, then February brings with it a feeling of freshness and a little excitement to re-awaken our social lives.
So, this month we’re ready to be inspired, from fashion week – both on and off the catwalk – to new art and photography exhibitions and a little bit of lovin’, there’s plenty to look forward to during this short but sweet month.
February – the month of love. And even if we aren’t exactly feeling loved up, we at least love that it’s no longer January…
So indulge us in a little romance on the blog today, as we say bonjour to the most romantic month of the year, and post the images inspiring us this February.
Note: It does include just a little hint of pink.
Having transcended associations with bookishness and subsequently geek chic, a pair of natty spectacles are now a bona fide part of a stylish man’s arsenal of accessories. Tortoiseshell or jet black, rounded or unapologetically square, choosing the right pair of glasses isn’t just a matter of taste; it’s crucial to pay due attention to the shapes and colours which will balance your face.
