Affordable luxury and stylish wardrobe staples
When the merry-go-round turns at ever more dizzying speeds, spinning natural fashion cycles into throwaway nano-trends, it’s a relief to jump clear. Who doesn’t truly value best-loved wardrobe staples, time and again, when undecided over what to wear? That simple white shirt or lean navy pants are our true go-to attire, timelessly chic and always bang on trend.
By offering clothes that are beautifully cut, fashion-conscious, elegantly sexy, and of exceptional quality—at prices that leave change for an accessory or two—British brand, Reiss, has risen to stratospheric heights of success. An icon of classic elegance, the Duchess of Cambridge is numbered among its fans, notably choosing a white dress from Reiss for her engagement portrait and another in nude for her meeting with the Obamas (both of which promptly sold out). For occasions such as these, her choices make a clear statement about what it means to be well dressed, which neatly describes Reiss’ offer: comfortable, confident, and very classy.
A recent collaboration with Swarovski keeps the Reiss style flying high: A capsule jewelry collection that can be worn from desk to dinner, through to dawn. You’ll find timeless pieces inspired by treasured heirloom jewelry and by the irregularities of gemstones in their natural rough-cut state. Try the exquisite Lyra locket with everything from a formal evening gown to the aforementioned white shirt and you’ll understand our point. Not convinced?
The clever asymmetry of the Astrid earring balances enough charisma to do boardroom brains and flirty cocktails with equal panache. And a layered Kalina bracelet will always sass up a suit, before rocking out with jeans at a gig. We rest our case. There’s not a day when Reiss isn’t right.
