With yuletide fast approaching, and the change of wardrobe that the end-of-year period beckons, Schön! plans ahead, taking a closer look at the Reiss Autumn/Winter ’14 Dressed To Kill collection. With the flurry of festive occasions just around the corner, we feel it’s time to dip into the appropriate apparel: with the profusion of after-dark celebrations, and the imperatives that winter season brings with it, Reiss offers a rich collection of luxurious textiles, glistening textures and dazzling ensembles. Reiss offers luxuriant apparel that will have heads turning, right through from Advent to New Year.
The Christmas season undoubtedly calls for a dress code that matches the opulence of the festivities. In light of this, formalwear has the last word, with distinguished silhouettes that are sure to make an impression at the wealth of social occasions. From black tie ensembles, with sharply tailored tuxedos and fine bow ties, to bandeau dresses and filigree lace gowns, dressing up is the imperative of the time of year. Sumptuous fabrics run throughout, with a range of oh-so-seasonal velvet pieces, as well as ornately embellished gowns.
The celebrations of the season are undeniably as scintillating as they are radiant. Therefore, live up to the occasion and dress to the nines. With the cover of dark winter nights, the Dressed To Kill collection offers sparkling highlights, with metallic trims and gilded jewels ensuring an added element of festive charm to the garments. Keeping the aesthetic decidedly modern with sleek lines and delicate sheers, the Dressed To Kill collection combines a minimalist silhouette with the flamboyance of more ornate pieces, in the form of spectacular cocktail dresses or glossy shearling coats.
Vintage elegance makes an appearance in the gentlemen’s wardrobe, with decorative pieces worthy of the interwar glamour: sartorial bijoux are rife and plenty, such as with richly-coloured wool suits, figure-hugging cuts, or sumptuous fabrics, notably with Prince of Wales check suits or velvet blazers. Not to be forgotten are the accessories, which add an element of exuberance, in the subtle form of sleek cufflinks and tie pins. With a muted palette and dimly-lit hues, the gents’ wardrobe is a glamorous testimony to the understated richness of the end-of-year period.
This eveningwear, with its refined detailing and high-quality cuts, is an investment, with staple pieces suitable for the many end-of-year seasons to come. Dress the part this Christmas with Reiss: whether it be with a stately cocktail dress, or a pared-down winter ensemble, this season, you’ll be sure to impress.
