SHOP WOMEN'S NEW ARRIVALS

Welcoming an intimate group of style makers to a private dinner on the rooftop of The Boundary hotel, we unveiled the Reiss High Summer collection.

Guests were greeted with a champagne reception as they enjoyed the impressive views of London’s skyline from our exclusive dining room. Una Joyce, Womenswear Director at Reiss, then took the crowd inside the world of High Summer with a private presentation, revealing how the collection came to life and an insight into the key colourways, details and prints for the season ahead.

“Head-to-toe neutrals are a luxurious way to style this season’s apricot tones,” she revealed. Also recommending they are paired with emerald green hues for an unexpected outfit combination. Monochrome colourways were also a strong message for both work and weekend wear, “I love the idea of adding black and white into your summer wardrobe, it just feels so fresh.”

“Each piece captures the authentic, spirited mood the season”

Referencing vintage prints and a relaxed take on tailored separates as some of her most prominent inspirations, Una also revealed how classic Reiss staples such as blazers and occasionwear dresses were updated for High Summer with rich colours and runway-inspired finishes courtesy of our in-house atelier.

After the presentation, guests were then seated to enjoy a Mediterranean-inspired three-course meal with a mix of sweet, exotic and savoury flavours mimicking the vibrant mood of the collection.

After dinner, coffee and dessert was served and attendees got a chance to take a closer look at each outfit and see the bespoke detailing, tailoring and fabric choices that are signatures of the Reiss’ sartorial DNA.
