I was so excited when one of my favorite labels, Reiss, reached out to talk about collaborating!
The British brand is a favorite of Beyonce and Anne Hathaway but has gained a huge following recently thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Kate created a Reiss frenzy when she wore their Nannette dress ($325) in her official engagement photo back in December 2010. Since then, she's worn their dresses periodically, meeting the Obama's in the Shola dress ($340) and re-wearing the Nannette while on tour in Canada.
While Reiss is known for its impeccable tailoring and sleek, elegant frocks they also have a sense of fun with bright colors, sumptuous leather jackets, and on-trend pieces like maxi skirts.
Reiss's Spring 2012 collection mixes old Hollywood glamour with the best of 90s minimalism- clean lines, girlish prints, and slouchy knits.
On Wednesday night I headed out to the Reiss store (132 Newbury St) to preview the collection for myself.
