Smart girl fashion is about to land in Dublin with the thrilling news & Other Stories is opening its first store in Dublin later this year. The shop will take up occupation this Autumn on 26-27 Grafton Street, the former home of A-Wear which has hosted pop-up shops since the label’s closure two year’s ago. In a statement, Samuel Fernstrom, the Managing Director of & Other Stories, said: “We’re very happy to have found a great location right in the heart of Dublin. We look forward to seeing our first-ever Irish store come alive.”
& Other Stories is characterised by reasonably priced accessories – think well-made bags, minimalist jewellery, affordable and simple beauty, excellent nail polish selection – as well as shoes and ready-to-wear clothes to suit all occasions, especially very cool workwear. This Dublin store will be divvy up all the goods across three floors. There are already shops in various European cities, including Aarhus, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Barcelona, Berlin, Bologna, Brussels, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Cologne, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Ghent, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Malaga, Milan, Munich, New York, Paris, Rome, and Stockholm.
The brand is also known for its excellent and unexpected collaborations and has worked with designers such as Rachel Antonoff – Lena Dunham directed the trailer for her close friend’s range – and handbag designer Clare Vivier, as well as artist Lykke Li. A Rodarte collection is due this Spring.
& Other Stories Dublin launch is scheduled to take place during Autumn 2016. Trust us, this is going to shake up all our wardrobes.
