The launch of Reiss’ oh so lovely, Autumn & Winter 2014 collection.
At 6pm sharp Luka and I entered the glass elevator of Dubai Marina’s Pier 7, selected M7, sending us to the very top, the doors opened, and we entered into Atelier Restaurant where lovely Reiss was hosting their exclusive Autumn and Winter 2014 collection launch.
Personally owning only one dress from Reiss I was very eager to see the new collection and possibly do a little shopping. It was Luka who actually owned quite a few of their menswear pieces. Thus, it was essential that he join me for this exciting preview.
We were given a full one-on-one tour where we had a first hand look at the newest Reiss trends, cuts, fabrics and accessories.
Some of these autumn/winter collection pieces had yet to be released, making this the first time us lucky few were able to experience them before they hit Dubai stores.
I loved this. A perfect elegant, but fun, deep red feathery statement piece. Needless to say I added it to my mental shopping list right away.
As well as some of these dashing mens wear pieces. Luka liked the ties and I thought the dress socks where perfectly classic. I later found that many people in Dubai agree with me on the socks and Reiss sells out with each new supply (so if you see em’ snag em’ – added to my shopping list for Mr. Z).
Behind the mannequins stands Atelier’s magnificent bar where guests were welcome to grab a refreshment if they hadn’t already been offered by the attentive servers roaming through the clothing racks.
While the whole collection had my mental shopping list growing ridiculously large I fell in love with this gorgeous rack of cool tone greens and pinks made from some of the softest fabrics. Every item was ready for you to jump into it and bundle up for the season (even Dubai can get a chill at night during the cooler months).
And oh the beautiful details. All patterns are designed in house, so you’ll never find them anywhere else.
A lovely collection. I can’t wait for the new collection pieces to hit the stores, I’ll defiantly be first in line to snatch them up.
If you can’t wait to shop either check out their online store, a little pre-shopping never hurt anyone.
