Luxe fabrications and precision design are at the heart of the Reiss Premium collection – an extension of the mainline series that’s ever so slightly more indulgent. From statement shearling coats to floor-sweeping evening gowns, these elevated pieces will make the ultimate addition to your style almanac. Here, we look at how best to work them into your winter wardrobe.

The Reiss Premium collection will add a little luxury to your wardrobe in time for the height of the season
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAIL
There’s an art to fusing classic black-tie attire with something a little more trend-focussed but the chicest way to do so this season is with clashing textures, and the bigger the contrast the better. Layer long-haired shearling over semi-sheer fabrications to experiment with depth and offset the tough-luxe appeal of leather with glistening bead embellishment or a sequin-studded clutch.
AN INDULGENT TOUCH
The right statement outerwear has the ability to transform not only a simplistic outfit combination but an entire winter wardrobe. The shearling gilet is this season’s answer to contemporary sophistication, but steer clear of classic black and neutral hues to really make an impact– midnight blue is just as versatile but ever so slightly more fashion-focussed.
LADY IN RED
The combination of black and red has long since been associated with dramatic eveningwear and it’s a look that fares especially well in darker seasons. The trick to maintaining an element of romance is to opt for languid silhouettes in lightweight fabrications. Enter the silk maxi dress – a black-tie hero that holds eternal charm.
Nothing spells empowerment like masculine tailoring so why not push the boundaries of cocktail dressing and accent sharp, architectural suiting with a borrowed-from-the-boys bowtie? Commit to the androgynous look with black and white separates but accessorise with sky-high heels for an unexpectedly feminine twist.
Get swept away in a blaze of sequins this party season and choose a dress that commands attention to embrace evening’s high-shine elegance. When it comes to styling, attention to detail is key, so add minimal accents in muted suede to contrast light-catching embellishment and soften the overall aesthetic.
Leather trousers go hand in hand with a louche, so-modern feel that translates seamlessly from day to evening, so style accordingly and eliminate the need for a 6pm switch-up. Forget what you know about leather on leather and layer up in the season’s oversized aviator-inspired outerwear for youthful verve, adding chic black heels to keep things feminine.
