As Creative Director for Dunnes Stores fashion, Carolyn Donnelly is not only an excellent figure behind the scenes but also an extraordinary fashion designer. For AW19, the Carolyn Donnelly collection features her unique digital prints on dresses, blouses and tops, while outerwear takes notes from classic patterns in monochrome shades. Leather also plays a big part in this collection, in pinafores, trousers and jackets, while standout coats include a reversible checkered peacoat and the feather-down puffer.
Expect a colour palette of black & white mixed with a variety of red, blue and pink hues. And wrap up with the soft woollen hats, scarves and gloves too!
For the classy style lovers, the Peter O’Brien collection promises effortless, practical yet stylish clothing. Muted tones of deep berry, navy, charcoal and white to break up the palette. Inspired by the 1920s, Peter’s fashion features top quality materials, button and print details, including his hand-drawn ladies of the 20s, digitally printed onto silken scarves.
Paul Costelloe Studio Living
A legend in his own right, the Paul Costelloe Living Studio lives up to its namesake. Taking inspiration from the everyday woman juggling many tasks, the new AW19 range features unique materials and many textures to cosy up in. From the variety of woollen Aran-style jumpers and super soft cashmere blend sweaters, to oversized jackets Ariana Grande would adore.
Accessories are aplenty too, as handbags, weekenders, scarves and hats all feature too. Paul Costelloe’s sketches are also adorned on silken scarves for that extra luxe touch.
One of the most known designer duo in Ireland, the new Lennon Courtney collection is all about style. Sonya Lennon and Brendan Courtney are bringing jewel tones, velvet, sparkle and checks into AW19.
From the 70s inspired prints to the statement stripes, Lennon Courtney will have all eyes on you in the most fashionable way.
If you’re looking for that unique, Irish designer piece at an excellent price then Joanne Hynes is your go-to lady! Though many pieces in the AW19 collection will be limited edition, you’ll find great investment pieces like the bejewelled knitwear and dresses as well as plaid jackets. For the festive season look to the glittering striped jumpers and dresses, while eclectic prints are throughout too. Plus many pieces feature little embroidered messages, which were taken from Hynes’ grandmother’s love letters!
Of course, no Joanne Hynes collection would be complete without accessories. Her collars, handbags and headwear feature her signature embellishment, while you can also decorate your home with cushions and rugs.
For the woman who enjoys her athleisure style and stays active, Helen Steele’s collection will be music to your ears. Combining the staple black with her pops of colour, expect excellent gym gear and loungewear with high quality style for AW19.
