The Spirit of The City
Is it wrong that I find myself willing the weather to cool down?! Not that we really had much of a summer anyway. But that complaint aside, my present-day desire to see the temperature drop a few degrees is unquestionably a result of AW12 collections like this from Reiss…
Reiss have nailed it this season, with shapes, colours and textures that take hold of every emotion. Their inspiration for AW12 was ‘the city’; dynamic and always exciting. Rich and luxurious heritage moments are referenced, but there’s no doubt this a thoroughly modern season. From the artistic and romantic affair of woodland influences to the strength and power of Forties icons, there’s also sexy, minimalist Nineties styling and playful pyjama dressing, which drench the season in utterly aloof glamour.
I simply cannot wait to pull on jumpers, cardigans, scarves and coats and snuggle up against the cold. My desire to throw on multiple layers of knitwear is quite surprising given that I never fully made the transition from my winter wardrobe to my summer wardrobe (cursed British weather!). But when admiring Reiss’ collection I simply cannot wait for the winter months to arrive!
