Reiss Wishlist

Like the biscuit tin on the top shelf of the cupboard in the kitchen, clothing brand Reiss has always felt seductively out of reach for me.  Although I'm frequently known to wander around John Lewis, cooing at their beautiful tailored dresses, floaty tops and gathered skirts, I'm also just as frequently known to issue a furtive glance at the price tag and walk away.  In the last year or so I've been training myself to keep to my mantra of 'buy less, buy better', which has meant breaking away from unnecessary splurges in Primark and moving more towards buying 'investment pieces' which will last me for seasons to come.  Although this has meant the addition of better quality handbags and shoes, I still haven't convinced myself to spend out as much on clothes.  If anyone were to lure me into spending in excess of £100 on a dress, or £75 on a pair of shorts however, I think it could be Reiss.  Their newest collection, all blushes and cornflower blues, sharp leather jackets and hints of acid green has me thinking that the next time I'm swooning over something from their range I might just have to save up my pennies and make that journey to the till.

Until I get really brave however, they do have a pretty awesome sale on at the moment.  That seems like a pretty good place to start to ease me in gently.

Are you a fan of Reiss?

  1. My 23-year old student daughter loves Reiss but like you is reluctant to spend such large amounts on clothes. She did, however, bite the bullet last year and purchase a mac from Reiss which was reduced to £57 from about £250 in the John Lewis Sale. I have to say the quality and cut of it really stands out.

  2. Sales are definitely the best place to start with the more expensive brands - I'm easing myself into shopping at Hobbs that way. I need the reassurance that the clothes are well made and will last long enough to earn their keep before I start spending full price on them!

  3. Reiss clothing is beautiful! They do colour blocking really well and always select the most gorgeous colour combinations! As there clothes are quite pricey, perhaps you could invest in a statement piece from their collection, such as a blazer or a bag - both items that will last a considerably long time if well looked after?

  4. I agree! Reiss clothes are really well made. My sister used to work there and got a crazy discount and she still wears a lot of the pieces she got :)

  5. I think Reiss is somewhere which has sort of passed me by, I don't think I've really browsed them much, but I guess that's not helped by the lack of a John Lewis near me.

  6. I absolutely adore Reiss, they're pieces are classic with a beautiful twist and are certainly well made. I've sadly not bought anything from there in a while though and that's purely because of the prices.
