SS15 PRINTS IN FOCUS

28.04.15

Expertly developed in-house, the SS15 prints are exclusive to REISS and designed to set the mood for the season. Ranging from high-impact graphics in colour-pop hues to delicate sorbet-shade florals, there's a style to suit any occasion. For inspiration, the design team looked to the runway's abstract patterned pieces as well as the impressionist art movement. We headed to the National Gallery's Inventing Impressionism exhibition to see this traditional source of inspiration in person. Inventing Impressionism is open until the 31st May.

PAINTERLY FLORALS

Florals hold forever spring/summer relevance and our delicate new-season flower print comes in a fresh pastel palette that's especially suited to warmer climes. The painterly design was initially inspired by the work of artists such as Claude Monet and Paul Cezanne. It references pieces like those from the Inventing Impressionism exhibit above but feels surprisingly modern when imagined in colour-pop coral and ice-green hues.

STRIKING GRAPHICS

Black and white graphics are your ticket to a striking look and SS15's monochrome pattern is given an exotic edge with snake-print striped detailing. A pop of pomegranate-red colour adds to its stand-out quality and renders it perfect with the season's host of bold-hued separates.

VALENTINE FLORAL

In contrary to the delicate painterly florals, the Valentine print is inspired by botanical flowers and will bring a tropical touch to your new-season wardrobe. It's imagined on both a black and white backdrop so there's a style to suit all. Visit the previous BEHIND THE PRINT blog post to view the initial sketches and the process behind the design.

LEAF PRINT

Nod to nature in a modern and artful way with the SS15 leaf-print series. Outlined shapes keep the blown-up graphics looking delicate and tonal blue and grey hues make a fresh contrast to the white canvas. Transferred onto loose, languid silhouettes, it makes for a feminine spring/summer look.
