February: Want Need Love

Discover the new designers to know and the collections to covet this month.?

FIERCELY FEMININE

Milanese brand Giuseppe di Morabito plays with traditional tailoring to create beautifully feminine silhouettes that look equally strong and modern. On-trend elemenets such as ruffles and sheer layers contrast beautifully with traditional structured shapes.

ALL ABOUT THE BAG

Put your subtle shopper away and herald the arrival of spring with a flamboyant handbag. Burberry has set the standard for notice-me-now bags, but high street stores have excelled themselves with their equally arresting interpretations. Irish designer Ale Walsh’s Bee bag is cute and quirky while Julien MacDonald’s floral-print shoulder bag for Debenhams is pretty as a picture.

BITE THE BULLET

American brand Coach’s SS17 collection has launched in Brown Thomas. Get on board the look with a dreamy prairie dress or tougher NYC-style accessories. Shark crew neck jumper, Coach, €595 at Brown Thomas.

CHANGE OF A DRESS

Worn by actress Emily Blunt and style icon Olivia Palermo, New York label Sachin & Babi’s fluid silhouettes have caught my eye. They look so effortless to wear, but still make a striking impression. Easy chic is exactly what makes spring such a joy to dress for – no tricky layers required, thank you!

MESSAGE IN A LOCKET

Willow & Clo’s latest collection of standout pendants make for the perfect Valentine’s gift by twisting open to reveal a secret message or hidden quote.

A LITTLE BOW CHIC

If in doubt this season, put a bow on it. So say designers from Chloe to Blumarine.

MARGOT BOWMAN X RIVER ISLAND

From quirky motifs in a riot of bold colour, to shouty slogans scrawled across collared coats and crop-top camis, River Island’s latest designer collaboration with contemporary artist Margot Bowman is one to get excited about. The collection will be available to shop online only from February 19th.
