Here is a snapshot of what you can expect from a selection of our fabulous Irish designers, with collections available in store now!
The latest designs from Fee G are, as always, classically elegant and perfectly tailored to the feminine figure, this season with a distinct 60s feel. Silhouettes are soft with whimsically flowing fabrics, with pretty pastel shades interjected with touches of embellishment and embossed quilted patterns. From coats and dresses to classic separates, the new Fee G collection caters for ladies of all ages whether you’re shopping for a special occasion or looking to up the glamour in your office attire.
No one does effortlessly elegant femininity quite like Aideen Bodkin! The collection can only be described as flawless, offering timeless sophisticated style with a nod to the 1950s. Patterns range from bold monochrome and hot pink combinations to understated metallic-flecked neutrals, with each design as flattering, fashionable and feminine as the next!
Our favourite design duo are back with another fabulous range of functional, fashion-forward separates to help you assemble the perfect seasonal capsule wardrobe! The new Lennon Courtney designs are unsurprisingly clean and classic, with bold block colours of white, tangerine and royal blue at the core of the collection. In signature Lennon Courtney style, shapes vary from oversized (cleverly cut) boxy styles to their more fitted ?hero? designs, all of which fit perfectly into the modern working woman’s wardrobe.
It’s been a year since we first welcomed Niamh O?Neill to the Kilkenny Shop and now in her third season, this young Irish designer has established herself as one of the leading names on the Irish fashion scene! The SS15 collection sees the return of the classic Emma dress and Christine coat, each given a seasonal update with jacquard fabrics and spring pantones. Pastel pink, white, bright turquoise are all core colours in the collection and Niamh O?Neill fans can also enjoy the return of her signature metallic bow detailing for a flattering waistline finish.
The younger sister to Fiona Heaney’s Fee G label, Luke Lovely delivers contemporary, wearable Irish fashion for the everyday wardrobe. Designed to be practical and functional, whether you’re in search of chic workwear or a more off-duty style, Luke Lovely offers designer style at affordable prices. The collection boasts a variety of on-trend prints and shapes, from ditsy florals to abstract graphic prints, classic tailoring to asymmetric cuts.
In true Caroline Kilkenny style, we see the arrival of another stunning collection to the Kilkenny Shop that simply oozes glamour and femininity! Bold coral and electric blue, neutral beige tones and playful floral prints work together to deliver a cool classic style fit for any occasion, from coats and dresses to clean cut separates!
As always, you can be sure to find a fabulous array of stylish accessories at the Kilkenny Shop, from classic Orla Kiely and Fossil to contemporary designs from Guess and Paul’s Boutique.
The latest range of Orla Kiely leathers boasts a beautiful marriage of patent and leather, using shades of black, cream and bold tangerine for a timelessly elegant range of handbags and wallets, with prices starting from €159 (wallets). Spring/Summer also sees the return of the iconic ?Multi Stem? print, sure to be much to the delight of Orla Kiely fans!
