The April Issue: Want Need Love

WANT NEED LOVE


UPTOWN GIRL

Magee 1866’s latest offering, inspired by the natural landscape of Donegal, sees classic tailoring and traditional silhouettes get a city-ready spin. Design and retail director Charlotte Temple says her aim was to create an all-inclusive collection that ‘married contemporary design with the brand’s rich heritage.? And while we adore the blush pink sleeveless jacket, the standout piece is a form-fitting blazer (as shown, above) nonchalantly worn over a smart white tee. Alicia blazer, €305 at magee1866.com. ?

VICTORIA BECKHAM X TARGET

This collaboration has been the talking point in the office since last December (even in the accounts department – yes, really!). From tops, dresses and skirts to trousers, shorts and accessories, we’ll have to start co-ordinating our outfits come April 9 when the collection goes on sale at target.com. Prices range from €6-?67.

TAKING FLIGHT

A post shared by Stella Jean (@stellajeanltd) on

To avoid ruffling any sartorial feathers this spring, look to Tibi’s playful prints, Mary Katrantzou’s embroidered doves or Stella Jean’s shoulder-grazing companions for inspiration. See more from Want Need Love in the April issue of IMAGE magazine, on shelves nationwide now.?
