Veratile and very now, lean into linen as the sun shines for the next few days …
Linen is the fabric du jour, and it’s no surprise: as well as keeping us nicely cool, it’s also got a renewed kudos in the fashion world, of late. (See our guide to the best Irish linen brands here.) The fact that we can wear a neutral linen blazer to the office and as cocktail wear is exemplary of the humble textile’s new swagger. What’s new? Look to soft, neutral tones like ecru, beige and stone white. For a splash of colour choose zinging orange, or sunflower shades of yellow as seen at BCorp-certified label Faithfull the Brand. Closer to home, Kindred of Ireland, part of this season’s Create initiative at Brown Thomas, brings a high-fashion aesthetic to linen, playing with ruffles and voluminous shapes. Keep cool and look modish in the process: it’s a win-win.
