They now boast a rather fabulous online store, but it’s in-store where Arnotts really shines and the breadth of their offering becomes clearest. The last few seasons have seen their stock of mid-range designers multiply with?Irish industry names such as Lennon Courtney, Natalie B. Coleman, Orla Kiely, Peter O’Brien and Umit Kutluk as well as one of our favourites, Selected Femme,?on the floor.
This season sees iconic Autumnal hues play big – check out the gallery. Dark chocolate browns, plums, burgundies, camels, greens, burnt oranges – yes, it’s all very luxe 1970s and 1980s, but it’s a palette that Irish women look their best in. Forget contouring – bring out that Celtic complexion with a combination of knits, leathers, and deep fur collars. Become the sophisticate your Pinterest boards imply you are.
When it comes to coats, the best part of the Autumn shop, comfortable boyfriend features as well as slightly-more-daring capes are on the must-buy list. Skirts are swingy, with demure Love Story A-lines helping to put accessories centre-stage. It’s all very much the stuff of a Hollywood classic movie set ?in New York in the Fall,. Think vintage Woody Allen like Manhattan and Hannah and Her Sisters.
Have a gander through the gallery above. If your heart doesn’t beat Potential Investment Piece, then you’re deluding yourself.
