Choose an earthy palette for the new season reflective of the scorched shades and burnt biscuit hues that characterise those first, fruitful days of autumn. Falling leaves and chilling temperatures demand cosy, soft cashmere and faux fur, and heavy, brocade materials are perfect for the imminent arrival of party season. This month, we captured our stunning model Hannah Dakin at the beautifully elegant Castletown House, where the setting sun provided the perfect backdrop for rich textures and a new-season colour palette, selected by stylist Sarah Rickard Lantry, assisted by Niamh Cunningham. Make-up artist Mary Ellen Darby, assisted by Emma Jane Curran, kept skin dewy and fresh with a hint of blush pink to perfectly compliment Hannah’s olive skin-tone. Aidan Darcy at Brown Sugar South William Street added texture and volume to Hannah’s already luxurious-looking hair. It’s time to reinvent your sartorial personality for autumn and winter and here’s where you can shop this season’s looks straight from the pages.
