The Irish Design AW14 Lookbook

So, while I was at Lusty Beg Island, I wanted to use the gorgeous surroundings to shoot an (almost) all-Irish design lookbook for AW14. I'll post on the trip tomorrow but, for now, here's how I style Irish design for the contemporary woman. The clothes are a mix of vintage, past seasons and current and represent labels like Avoca, Lennon Courtney, Savida by Dunnes Stores, Newbridge Silverware, Joanne Hynes and more!


Hat - Savida, Coat - Lennon Courtney, Vest - Claire Kennedy, Bag - Newbridge Silverware, Jeans, Shoes and Sunglasses - Topshop












Jumper - JW Anderson, Skirt - Avoca, Sandals - Heavenly Feet, Bag - As above.



Coat - Avoca, Dress - Vintage, Tights - Dunnes, Shoes - Boohoo, Sunglasses - Topshop







Earrings - Joanne Hynes













What do y'all think? Gorgeous scenery, right?

Photo Post.

I think this may be my favourite photo post yet. I'm pretty proud of these images and how they look together. In the last few months I think I've just really found myself, my style, my aesthetic. It's like this veil has been lifted and I can see now. I'd describe it as moody with a sense of humour, looking for the lovely in the ordinary.

Ramblings of a lunatic? You decide.

View with this playing for optimal experience.

|ALEXANDER WANG X H&M Shopping List|

So, if you didn't already know, the Alexander Wang x H&M collab is probably the highstreet/designer collaboration I've been most excited for ever. Being able to access the work of one of my favourite designers and work produced specifically for the collection rather than more cheaply produced dupes of archive pieces is amazing. 

EMPHASIS. EXCITEMENT.

Images of the individual pieces from the collection are now available so I was finally able to comprise my shopping list. To be honest, I probably won't purchase all of these but I'm certainly aiming for the grey sweater, shorts and long sleeve black tee.

Little Gem: De La Punc

Situated on the ever achingly-hip South William Street, De La Punc is a wee bit tucked away but an absolute treasure to be discovered. You kind of descend down off the high street into something a little more special, a little more unique.

The influence of co-owner, Gina's, passion for and interest in Japanese streetstyle and trends is visible with a really cool mixture of clothing and accessories available. Several genres of style are catered for with cute vintage-inspired dresses, pop-artesque jewellery and lines such as the wonderfully gothy Eyre.

Plus, it's always great to support both Irish design and independent stores.

If this seems interesting to you, check them out on facebook, their site and pop in if you get a chance - I highly recommend it!
