5 Things We Noted At The Arnotts SS24 Showcase

Arnotts revealed its SS24 collections today and gave us the dash of hope we all needed …

The fashion industry gathered at Arnotts this morning to preview what’s in store for SS24 at the storied department store. And the collections had broad appeal. From feisty florals to pure whites and sporting touches, to novelties such as cargo trousers, equine details and summer sequins, the message is clear: our wardrobes should be as multi-faceted as the women who wear them. Thankfully, with this spread of newness, Arnotts has delivered on that in droves. Scroll below for our highlights …

Florals mean business

Florals are less pretty, more statement making this season. Rather than refined pastels, the ubiquitous spring print got a dose of attitude, covering, in great spectacle, a full length sequin dress by Stine Goya. Equally, billowing tent shapes with tonal florals in luxurious jacquard fabrics were the order of the day at Sister Jane, the brand loved for occasion dressing. Irish brands AndTate and Caroline Kilkenny put their own luxurious spin on the look with a scintillating use of colour. 

Western details

The look that got more than one murmur of approval from editors at today’s showcase was a cropped jacket by Stella Nova that had an embroidered horse emblazoned across the back. Paired with a simple striped dress, a tan bag and a pair of cowboy boots, it nodded to a contemporary take on western dressing that had a homespun appeal.

Utility separates

Chalk it up to the return of cargo pants, but separates for the season ahead have a distinct utility feel to them. Brands such as Max Mara Weekend, 2nd Day and Marella have leaned into this, serving up glossy jackets that run the gamut from chocolate to khaki, paired with shorts or cargo trousers (what’s next, camouflage? Yes, actually!) that have a workwear feel to them – whether that work is a safari trip or a chic dinner date is up to you. Either way, look for sleek shades of white, green and brown, plenty of pockets and pair with tan accessories such as a Marc by Marc Jacobs XL tote.

Don’t ditch your black blazer

It may be spring, but we’re still in Ireland was the message from the catwalk at Arnotts today, where a black blazer was one of few cover-ups shown throughout the 50-look show (aside from a gorgeous leather biker by 2nd Day). These blazers have had a glow up for spring, too. The first, by Copenhagen brand Stine Goya, sported a lustrous finish and a floral motif, while the second, by 2nd Day, was a louche watermarked velvet black blazer, which came with coordinating trousers; a versatile look that we can see being worn with ease for work events or for dressing up. 

Gingham is back 

Beloved summer print, classic tablecloth gingham is revived for SS24. The beauty of the trend is in its contemporary styling. See a cropped blue check jacket by Baum und Pferdgarten paired with high-waisted Levi’s and a denim tote bag (it’s the look we would wear right off the runway).

This season Arnotts will introduce 13 new brands across fashion and accessories, including Calvin Klein, FÉRÍ, Urban Aran, A Lilac Tale, Bardot and Rains as sun holiday enthusiasts will delight in discovering new arrivals from Simone Perele Swimwear, Empreinte Swimwear, Greek Archaic Kori, and the boho summer collection by Devotion Twins.
