What’s the verdict on the new do?

Missoni á la mode

If you are a fan of the Missoni trademark print, but don’t want to spend the cash, I found two great alternatives from Monsoon and Oasis. The traditional print which has carried through the line for many decades and continued by Margarite herself, has been translated by the high street. Adhering to the 70s vibe which is flourishing, both of these tunics are a must.

Wear as a dress with flat sandals in the summer (whenever that arrives) or with leggings/tights until the sun decides to shine.

A little fash round up!

I’m still winding down from London Fashion Week and no sooner than I was home, I launched myself into a new fashion filled week. There is no end to the cycle and seasonality of style. So I’ve put together a little summary of what you need to know from the last week (or two or three)

A brand reborn

Do you remember the time when everyone wore Caterpillar boots? Back in the late 90s, when TLC rocked the baggy jean and Cats look? Ok well maybe you’re not as old as me then! A well established brand that made high quality footwear with an industrial twist was a fashion fad and now they are back with one huge JCB and digger size bang! Superstar singer Shontelle (“Nothing feels right when I’m not with you, sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos”…) was in London last week to sign her name for fans at Schuh, Oxford St. Strutting her way around town in these booties, looking all fab.

No more rumaging…

TK Maxx have just launched a new range called “Gold Label” in Dublin this week, introducing some amazing designers to the store, like Stella McCartney and Michael Kors.

No longer will you have to rumage for that designer steal, now they are marked there for your viewing and purchasing pleasure.

Some of my favourites are this Chloe Green Tote (€829.99) and a Michael Kors leather jacket (€129.99). Pop along on your lunch break and bring your credit card.  

New looks at New Look

Following the stellar success of the opening of it’s flagship store in Dublin’s city centre, New Look’s popularity goes from strength to strength. Following the key trend for Spring/Summer of a colour splash, check out tgreat pieces at great prices, like this soft orange mini dress.

The stylenation.ie team are busy editing our filming from London Fashion Week. First up is the super and sophisticated collection from Paul Costello for A/W 2011. Minis, tartan, metallics-an eclectic mix of colours and textures made this collection bold and confident. Later in the week, stylenation will bring you my chat with Paul about the collection and some feedback from the peeps on the front row!
