Travel fave: Reitman’s resort collection

Rolling out into stores this month, Reitman’s first resort collection contains simple and affordable pieces that can easily make the transition from winter’s clutches into sunshine style for your favourite southern or island destination.

Reitmans’ Nathalie Lesage explained the ideas behind the collection and some tips for travellers heading to the sun this winter:

Why did Reitmans create a resort collection?

There is an increasing demand for warm weather fashions in winter months from customers who are headed to sunny destinations on a winter getaway. It also linked to our philosophy Designed for Rea Lifel…it is real to run away to get some sun!

What does the resort collection include?

Lightweight, wrinkle-free blouses, camis, capris, shorts, dresses, and skirts designed in colours and patterns to mix and match. The collection was conceived not only for this winter’s getaway but features essentials also suitable for the upcoming summer season as well.

What colour palette was chosen for the collection?

Classic black and white, vivid coral, orange, pink, and blue as well as neutral chino beige and grey.

Which textiles were chosen?

Lightweight, breathable cotton blends and wrinkle-free fabrics.

What must-haves should women include from the collection?

Our advice for travelling women…pack light and pack right!

Our collection features fashionable warm weather pieces designed to mix and match. The pieces coordinate with one another and take the guesswork out of outfit planning. As a result you’ll know exactly what to pack and won’t overload your luggage!

Here is Reitmans top 5 travel-ready pieces:

Capri: The warm weather substitute for the classic pant, “go-anywhere” Capri pants can take you from the beach to a romantic dinner. The right top and accessories will help transition Capri pants from day into evening.

Bohemian Blouse: a billowy top works well with casual shorts as it does with dressy skirts. Its versatility will increase your wardrobe possibilities and lighten your suitcase. Why pack a top that goes with one item when you can bring one blouse that goes with everything?

 Open cardigan: an absolute must-have, this cardigan will keep you warm on cooler evenings, or in overly air-conditioned areas (especially on the plane!).

 Printed Sundress: this versatile and easy-to-wear classic dress in comfortable, wrinkle-free fabric is perfectly packable and wearable. It can be worn casually on its own and can be dressed-up with a shawl and jewellery for a special night out.

Sandals: multiple shoes can weigh down your suitcase, which is why you need to pack one pair of fabulous sandals to wear with everything and everywhere! Our embellished sandals are as affordable as they are chic, can be worn with everything from sporty shorts to a stylish dress.
