“You may be cool, but you’re not Frank Sinatra stepping out of a helicopter with a glass of whisky cool.”
For Spring/Summer ’15, Reiss plays with 50s Americana combined with Sinatra at the helm as muse. With a salute to the effortless panache of the Rat Pack, highlights include the Foster ‘mouline’ jacket or Leary shawl collar linen jacket; while evening is pure Vegas with the Jake white tuxedo jacket.
Modern Man, Old Soul sees an old experienced soul inhabit a young body. Wearing ‘grown-up’ clothes beyond his years, he has an air of Benedict Cumberbatch about him. Think deep blue hues, complementing tonal looks; Costa unstructured jacket, Kirk Cuban collar shirt and Ross trousers.
Sharp seaming, inspired by modernist architecture, features on shirts and outerwear. Cigar sports & Cognac clubs introduce larger and geo prints into the mix. A sporting aesthetic prevails, with golfing greens as a backdrop and Hartnett blouson jacket front of stage.
A ‘relaxed casual’ affair, this strand of the collection incorporates the timeless chic of fine gauge knit polos, unstructured blazers and a sprinkling of Vintage-inspired pieces with a touch of modernity in Rocco checked casual jacket and trouser look.
Resort ready and cocktail appropriate attire heralds the return of the printed shirt. Popularised by Montgomery Clift in From Here to Eternity and Elvis in Blue Hawaii the palette is brighter with unapologetically bold prints, shown on the Bondi flower print and Caviar printed shirts.
