[Featured] REISS Bloggers SS13 Evening

Last year I spent a cold winter evening with Reiss at their lovely head office just off Oxford Circus to see their SS13 collection with some other of the Handpicked Media bloggers.  I've been craving sunshine ever since - absolutely loved the stuff, as my amateur-on-screen self will tell you in this little video with Isabelle, Carina, Shona and Navaz (need to get my head around doing this, sorry for the waffle in advance...).


There were loads of cute summery tops and dresses, but I've tried to pick out the pieces we can wear in our spring in the edit (below). I loved the pastel tones and the general final touches to the entire collection. As Isabelle said in the video, the detailing is great and the quality and fabrics equal that of a Parisian showroom.  They still kept the basics in there too though - loved the Kirsten camel jacket and the every day Lara boots. I took a shine to all the knitwear, which felt gorgeous and was perfect for those dodgy 'summers' we're having in the UK at the moment with all that 'sunshine.' The Rocco sweat has a really cool cross stitch detail on the back too...


And the accessories... Love them. I didn't think anything would make me like the name Nina again (little madam in my ballet class when I was 6 who used to kick her leg out in front of girls when they went past, b*tch) but Reiss totally have with their Nina box bag - I cannot explain how much I love it other than by just showing you a lot of pictures of it:


As well as Nina, I loved the little red tote and the saffiano leather - very Celine/Chloe... The Reiss team gave me a voucher to spend after this event, and I bought a LOT in the sale - thank you! On that final note, one of the things I bought were these trousers. Can't believe they are now £33, can't recommend them enough - get them while you still can...

So useful for my (hopefully) streamlined new wardrobe - although definitely dangerous for the wallet.....just too pretty.

I'm just browsing the new collection pieces on the Reiss site now. I love the blush pinks and creams... I like the accessories a lot more this season too. I dare not go in to their store mind you, I always leave with something!
