This is the 1971 lookbook from Reiss
Even though Reiss is considered a 'High Street Store' I think it's about as high end as the high street gets
Which means fabulous cuts and amazing fabrics
but sadly it also means much much higher prices too
Reiss is normally way out of my price range
But with their 1971, I find that now some of the pieces are actually really affordable and not even much more than Topshop on some pieces.
I just fell in love with these looks from the newest collection
I just see Serena Van Der Woodsen when i look at this
I think it manages to mix her Upper East Side chic-ness with her casual quirky-ness
I could imagine her rocking each look through out this whole season on Gossip Girl, no?
I always get really excited when i see a stores 'GIRL' cleary in their collections
Not to sound too fashion-y
but what i mean is I see the girl that would wear the first outfit being able to wear each look throughout the week, taking her from morning to night, from work to a bar right up to lazin' about on a Sunday afternoon
I think that a lot of High Street collections try to fit a bit of every trend into their collection
Which i totally get because if you think about the wide spectrum of women they are designing for-
Sometimes age ranges that span decades,
Then it makes sense why most of their collections don't have much of a common thread
Whereas it's nice to see Reiss abandon the latest style fads (apart from sequins, but seriously i think everyone could do with more sequins in there life, right?)
and opt for a more cohesive collection
What do you guys think?
Are you a fan of Reiss?
I think it's really important that i have look 6,7 and 8 in my wardrobe
My fall back outfit just now is my jeans/chinos and a sweatshirt which basically sums up these looks except with a Spring/Summer twist
So now i have to basically go save for a few years to be able to buy it all,Ha!......
