“Prada’s skirt-suit is one of our hero looks of the autumn winter 2022 season. The brand’s modern approach to tailoring, featuring a full midi-skirt and structured blazer, is the perfect way to update how you style a skirt this season and perfectly encapsulates tailoring’s empowering new mood.” www.matchesfashion.com.

“A tweed blazer by The Landskein is my hero piece for the new season. I wear mine a little oversized with the cuffs slightly turned up. I love to style it with oversized crisp cotton shirts, loose fit Japanese denim or a voluminous dress. It’s the perfect fabric for ‘soft days’ or an Irish autumn and coming into winter I’ll wear it with thicker ribbed knits layered with dresses. While it’s a beautiful piece of Irish design it also feels very French and received much attention on a recent trip to Paris.” @aisfarinella.

“It’s all about the statement skirt this season. My favourite is the Sajka skirt by Christian Wijnants: a gorgeous silk-blend skirt that’s so comfortable to wear and has pockets. I’d pair it with a black oversized sweatshirt or, for a dressier look, with Barbara Bui’s metallic knit tank top (it literally goes with everything).” www.electra.ie.

“There’s a Loewe leather trimmed cotton twill jacket that is constantly selling out but I’m waiting patiently for the restock. I’m all about practicality, and this piece offers the versatility required to endure an Irish winter. It can be worn buttoned up with jeans and loafers, as a jacket with a dress or with the buttons open over a fine knit with a pair of wide-legged trousers. The subtle Loewe logo gives it a vintage feel that is very now but also timeless.” @jo_the_futurist.

“I love colour for a winter coat and this luxurious teal trench by Irish designer Colin Horgan works with just about everything in my wardrobe. It’s called the Heirloom coat because it’s just that: a treasure to hold onto. It’s the perfect blend of craftsmanship and cutting edge design, combining the elements of a classic trench – large lapels, a cinched in waist with futuristic panelling and detailing – making it the embodiment of a modern classic.” www.macbees.ie.

“My prize piece for the new season has to be a Venczel Élan-S bag – it’s such a modern and sophisticated silhouette that fits a surprising amount of stuff; keys, wallet, you name it. Venczel is the brainchild of Swedish designer Matilda Venczel, who takes inspiration from ‘boy racer’ cars for her designs; from the form, to the colour and the hardware. A favourite amongst the fashion pack, Venczel bags are for women with busy lives and no time for fluff and frippery: my kind of women!” @isabella_rose_celeste.
