MONTREAL, Nov. 1, 2016 /CNW/ - Canadian retailer Reitmans is delighted to announce Meghan Markle's return as a design collaborator, introducing her second capsule collection, launching this fall. The collection of fashion-forward staples includes five versatile pieces that can easily be mixed and matched taking women effortlessly from desk to dinner. Heavily involved in the design process, Ms. Markle ensured her personal style was reflected in each item.
"The first collection was a learning curve for me and for Reitmans as well. We wanted to provide a capsule collection that incorporated my personal style and personality while always embracing the Reitmans woman," says Markle. "The fall collection is comprised of pieces I love to wear with a bit of an edge. I hope Reitmans shoppers will love it as much as I do!"
Five key pieces designed by Ms. Markle create the ultimate fall wardrobe, including a modern update on traditional workwear pieces such as a faux leather pencil skirt and boyfriend-style blouse. Cropped leggings and a turtleneck bodysuit add a casual, trendy take on weekend dressing. Rounding out the collection is a cashmere blend poncho that can be styled three different ways.
"Ms. Markle truly embodies the modern, professional woman, both in her career and personal life. She resonates with both existing and new Reitmans customers, making her the perfect partner for this workwear collection," says Jackie Tardif, Senior Vice-President of Merchandising for Reitmans.
The Meghan Markle fall collection will be available online and at select Reitmans stores across Canada as of November 3. An exclusive online pre-sale for registered shoppers will also be available, customers can learn more by visiting Reitmans.com.
