BIJOU FOR YOU
Everyone wants to be a Chloé girl and the Drew Bijou bag in oh-so-Parisian ochre hue is just the ticket to take you from galas to garden parties and beyond this summer. Its sumptuous quilting and decadent jewellery chain will ensure you exude left-bank chic while you flit around town.
Chloé, Drew Bijou Bag, €1,550.00.
BUCKLE THE TREND
The ankle boot is standing firm in our summer wardrobe and is simply perfect for the Irish summer. Right now Céline’s cylindrical heels with decorative mismatched buckles are the ones vying for the top spot in our affections.
Céline, Elliptic Ankle Boots, €530.00. Available in store.
BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN
It’s official; fashion has turned to all things rodeo this summer and Loewe offer one of the most appealing incarnations of the Western Heritage trend. The Gate Saddle bag with equestrian-inspired knot front and smooth tan leather is made to be carried nonchalantly in the hand (as per the runway) with this season’s prairie florals.
Loewe, Gate Bag, €1,700.00. Available in store.
PRADA’S ON POINT
These Prada mules are summer in a shoe, with blue striped toes and bows reminiscent of the parasols of the Riviera. With a demure yet sexy appeal, these kitten heels are the perfect switch-up for dreamy summer days. Wear with an eclectic mix à la Miuccia Prada’s runway show and channel the strong feminine spirit of Prada in your own unique way.
Prada, Decollete Blue Slingbacks, €720.00. Available in Brown Thomas Dublin and Cork.
SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT
Demna Gvasalia (Creative Director of Balenciaga) is inspired by a youthful mix of high and low Parisian culture. This BB bag works that bold teen spirit with souvenir pendants (from the Eiffel tower to the Arc de Triomphe) dangling from the chain strap of this luxe quilted leather bag. For a man who once told Vogue that “being down to earth is the new black” he offers us real Paris in a bag.
Balenciaga, BB Charm bag, €1,890.00.
Summer occasion season is upon us (think summer weddings, garden parties and the races). With so much revelry taking place outdoors we can delight in the elevated flat this summer. Malone Souliers offers a great alternative to sky-high heels with these sleek slip-ons that are completed with curvaceous shape and gleaming golden straps. They’ll add a punch to pretty pastels and a modern touch to evening dressing.
Malone Souliers, Maureen Flats, €490.00.
Nobody does it better than Marni for their bright, joy-filled jewellery. Like little works of art you'll find a pearl nestled in the centre of each sunny drop pendant. Make like the Italians and use these beauties to contrast with a summer black dress.
Marni, Pearl Pendant Earrings, €290.00.
