Dubarry Has Your Christmas Wish List Sorted

Dubarry Has Your Christmas Wish List Sorted

I would rather buy fewer?gifts of the very best quality for close?friends and family at this time of year, so I always drop into Dubarry at College Green, Dublin, when on a?festive shopping spree. I know I will walk away with something that’s been lovingly?handcrafted and is beautifully presented, something recipients will value and, more importantly, get use out of. I generally take a practical approach to gifting because I always appreciate being given’something that I need, and will make use of, rather than something that’s merely decorative. Here are a few great gifts I’m coveting ideas from heritage brand Dubarry this year.

Crossbody bags are not just a catwalk favourite right now, they’re the practical and chic choice for busy women who need to be hands free to?juggle everything from?laptops?to coffee cups. This understated but chic Eyrecourt crossbody bag has a lovely mix of crushed and smooth leathers for a high fashion feel. With an adjustable strap, it can be worn in different ways so offers flexibility as well as style.

An elegant wrap can really elevate an outfit from ordinary to stunning. The soft shades?of these Fassaroe wraps will warm up pale skin tones as well as adding a subtle hint of colour and pattern to an outfit. They are made from 100 per cent brushed Merino wool so feel beautifully tactile and luxurious.

Fassaroe wraps, €99 each at Dubarry

You cannot go wrong with a classic black?leather purse. I love the addition of the buckle detail on this Dubarry wallet. It’s smart but also offers?a nod to next season (buckle details appeared on a multitude of SS17 catwalks). Again, Dubarry’s signature mix of crushed and smooth leathers gives this piece an individual and sophisticated look.

Every woman should have some animal print in her wardrobe, and this stunning headband is an ideal way to introduce print to an outfit. A?chic way to stay warm this season, this headband will look stunning day or night.

For any friend who loves fashion, this gorgeous Victoriana-style shirt is perfect. French seams, a frill front panel and pretty button detailing transform a simple white shirt into?a modern classic.
