The Autumn/ Winter 2013 collection from Reiss features modern separates, razor-sharp tailoring, dapper men’s suits and timeless statement dresses.  My favourite item was this quilted silver leather jacket which was a real stand-out piece (and about a fifth of the price of a metallic Burberry one).

The collection uses contrasting fabrics and textures like structural crepe, sun-bleached wool, shaggy shearling, glossy leathers, draped jersey and luxurious satin finishes which play with shadows and light, in a cool, muted palette for which Reiss is known.  Tasteful and simple with discreet detailing, the garments are suitable for day or night.

Even though we may be a bit sick of all things Great Gatsby-inspired by now, the collection is a modern, feminine interpretation of the 20s and inspirations include Jazz Age fashion, Virginia Bates, Kiki De Montparnasse and 1920s Paris.  Other highlights are re-worked outerwear classics like the pea coat and Crombie, fresh occasion wear with bold lace, jacquard patterns and fine lurex stripes and these chic cut out court shoes.
