REISS PRESENTS AW13

07.08.13

Today marks the official launch of our Autumn/Winter 2013 season. Cinematic, dramatic and atmospheric, let us introduce you to our Reiss Presents campaign which will unfold over the coming months.

The story is set at two iconic London venues steeped in history and performance; The Savoy Theatre and the Royal Opera House, which both perfectly capture the spirit of the campaign.

Throughout the season, our blog posts will explore these beautiful buildings, their history, stories and performers - past and present.

The campaign itself features shots in the theatre among the sumptuous seating to sat at the piano in the clean, bright rehearsal studios, and our womenswear collection lends itself so beautifully to these mood-evoking settings.

Complementing the rich backdrop, the collection was styled with both simplicity and glamour in mind. Layering was key, with contrasting textures worn on top of one another. From a little lace dress with a fur stole, to a sharply-tailored checked suit and a wool coat over the shoulders.

While the subdued and stylish colour palette and prints blur beautifully, blending in with the lush surroundings.

Menswear reflects this feel, where the man of the season, The Journeyman (learn more about him later), was the strong and thoughtful character here, but it is his clothes which take centre stage.

From tuxedo suits shot in the theatre's box, to wool blazers on stage and a timeless camel overcoat and hat, the man has individual presence, but also a poetic duality with the woman throughout.

Watch the story come to life in our film and explore more about the inspiration behind the collection in our Notebook features for men and for women.
