British fashion brand Reiss has returned to Heathrow Terminal 5 with a new store concept. The design is to be rolled out across UK and international outlets this year.
Heathrow T5 Reiss, opened on March 20, delivers “a scaled-down but equally potent version of its lead destinations for travel retail shopping. Filled with Reiss’ DNA throughout, the revitalized store concept is particularly notable for showcasing a new fluidity between the men’s and women’s collections, unifying the brand vision within a singular visual voice.”
Rendered largely in robust but ultra-luxurious materials – anchored by a glazed shard installation rendered in umbra tones derived from key blue onyx furniture elements- the showroom/gallery style aesthetic concept presents a seductive sense of toughness and precision that serves as a reminder of the brand’s classically skilled roots in tailoring and high-level design.
Reflecting Reiss’ commitment to directional, design-led fashion its stores have grown accordingly to become individualized beacons of artistic modern luxury – mixing high quality traditional craftsmanship with innovative material developments fused with a subtly playful emphasis on glamour.
Other sites adopting the new design narrative will include two new debut stores in Toronto, Canada, the Westfield WTC in New York and an upcoming re-crafting of the UK store portfolio.
David Reiss – Founder and MD of REISS says: “We are delighted to be returning to Heathrow T5, and are tremendously excited to reach both new and returning international and local customers.”
Heathrow Retail Director Jonathan Coen said: “One of the things we pride ourselves on at Heathrow is showcasing great British brands. Reiss is the perfect choice for our sophisticated and fashion savvy jetsetters looking to take a piece of British design home with them.”
