Two of Ireland's leading names in fashion released a collaboration that has us ready for crisp autumn days.
The Lucy x Pippa collection sees Lucy Nagle’s everyday luxe meet Pippa O’Connor Ormond’s signature style, resulting in a classic and cool collection of 100% merino wool loungewear and cashmere blend t-shirt tops.
Fabrics such as merino and cashmere often come with hefty price tags but the Lucy x Pippa collection is more affordable, with pieces ranging from €50-€110. Lucy Nagle, creative director at LucyNagle cashmere, says: “I really wanted to ensure the price point was accessible without affecting quality. All the sweaters and loungewear are 100% merino wool and the t-shirt tops are a cashmere blend. Merino wool is premium wool, it’s the best quality wool and is super soft to touch."
The Oversized Rollneck in grey, €100
Pippa O'Connor Ormond says: “I’m so excited about the collaboration with Lucy. A 100% merino wool sweater is something everyone should have in their wardrobe, they’re timeless and if you look after your knitwear you’ll have it to wear on repeat. For me, it’s all about quality and affordability so I think we’ve created something really special together.”
Lucy and Pippa worked on the collection throughout lockdown. Lucy says: “We met and discussed plans last March so lockdown was a busy time bringing the collection to life. We were on Zoom calls, on Whatsapp, and on email sending photos and ideas back and forth. We worked really well together and we can’t wait to share the results."
The Hoodie in navy, €100
Lucy says “I've loved working with Pippa on projects over the years and my knitwear sweaters have always been a staple of Pippa’s wardrobe. It was a natural progression in our partnership to create this collection and do something collaboratively."
The Bolt sweater in white, €100
The new Lucy x Pippa collection is set for release 23rd September 2020 exclusively fromlucynagle.com.
