Following a successful year of record sales and profits, Reiss plans to open two flagship stores in New York and enter Australia.

The Sunday Times reported the premium UK high street retailer will open on Madison Avenue and at the World Trade Centre in spring 2016.

The retailer already has five stores in New York, with others in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Florida, Maryland, Illinois and Virginia.

Reiss will also enter Australia next year, opening two stores in central Melbourne. The company also recently announced it would open its first store in France at the beginning of next year.

The international expansion plans come after Reiss saw a 10% rise in sales to £128m last year, with operating profits almost quadrupling to £13.7m.
