We must have earned some serious style karma to have been delighted with a fabulous yacht trip around Dubai Marina, with one of the most stylish brands I know, Reiss London, and the essential fashion manual, Emirates Woman Magazine. 10 bloggers from Dubai were handpicked to represent the brand as style ambassadors in the UAE and Fashionably Yours was one of them!
Once out at sea, the revelry on-board got even bigger, with an ultra exclusive, curated preview of Reiss’ spring summer collection 2013. Just when we thought it couldn’t get better, out came the stunning pieces! I for one, am bowled over by the simple, minimalist and sophisticated line from Reiss this season.
Moving away from what everyone’s doing- i.e. Monochrome-and-neon, Reiss presented some key colors of the season, with a unique twist, not seen anywhere yet. What caught the eye in particular, was this V front flared mini skirt, featuring an abstract lotus print, with asymmetric seams- A beautiful, dramatic take on spring’s regular floral print.
Next up, the ‘Jade Top’ presented a delicious surprise. It delighted us bloggers with its versatile, unexpected silhouette. The pastel colored sheer fabric cut in squares, had us all captivated in its layers!
Finally, a fabulous printed full-length dress made an impressive entry, with its exclusive, “made for the Middle East” tag. The ‘Giselle dress’ with its frill hem and keyhole detailing on the neck wowed us all with its understated elegance and beautiful cut. The twenties inspired graphic print added a dash of frolic to this simple but classic item.
Mint blue or power blue is the color to be seen in, this season. Reiss’ own interpretation was fabulously depicted in the classic pleat technique dress- so effortlessly chic! The Nevada Dress is the very trendy adaptation of the now popular fit and flare silhouette- the double frill hem lends a charming 20’s feel to the outfit.
I’ve yet to come across a more simple, sophisticated and stunning collection from any fashion brand yet. Reiss’ new collection comes highly recommended and rendered absolutely essential for that effortless chic look this summer. Au revoir, winter, here comes the spring sun!
