High Summer Collections From Irish Designers to Shop Now

5 MIN READ SAVE

The weather is heating up and we’re all reaching for our summer clothes. If you are considering buying some new pieces, buy once, buy Irish and wear forever, says style editor Aislinn Coffey  …

Stores across Ireland have opened their shutters and are trading once again. Many small Irish fashion labels need our support and loyalty to continue trading. Instead of heading to one of the many multinational retail giants’ stores, spare a thought for our independent fashion labels. Look at luxe designers like Mona Swims. Created by Irish woman Carla Johnson, the new collection Uiara is really breathtaking. Uiara, an Amazonian river siren from ancient Tupi and Guaraní mythology, is a snake spirit. Johnson’s newest prints are inspired by water creatures (like the caiman crocodile, the moray zebra eel as well as the cobra) found in the Amazon; www.monaswims.com. Stellar knitter and Glossy favourite Ros Duke’s new Cherry Blossom collection seamlessly blends classic, luxury appeal with uber-feminine shapes; www.rosduke.com. Sustainable designer Faye Anna Rochford of fashion label FéRí has just launched a new high-summer collection of statement print dresses, blouses, dungarees and jeans: think retro, vintage-inspired colours and prints; www.feri.ie. Four Thread designer Alanagh Clegg’s new Block Print collection is based on a series of loungewear pieces block printed by hand using natural dyes by skilled block printers in India. The muted tones of the prints compliment the earthy materials from which the dyes are created; www.four-threads.com. Sinead Keary has returned with her hugely-anticipated second (Chapter 2) collection. This label really is worth a look, check out Keary’s new bra-friendly black silk midi dress; www.sineadkeary.com. Fortunately, we can all do our bit by supporting Irish brands – and there’s never been so much choice. No need to feel guilty about having a splurge whether it’s online or from a local boutique …
