Arnotts Press Preview today Autumn Winter 2011

On a dreary Dublin day when it truly already felt Autumnal it was great to view some pieces from collections at the Arnotts Press day. Stand outs for me come from Tara Jarmon in fabulous colour. Jaeger and Aquascutum. Heidi Higgins continues to grow as an emerging serious player on the Irish design front and I’m delighted that my introduction to Arnotts is proving to be such a good venue for the young designer who kicks off this season with a truly beautifully simple outlook. Shapes were slightly more A-line and sumptuous fabrics in stunning colours ensure this collection like last seasons will be a sell out one.

Accessories are a plenty with world leading brand Coach arriving to Ireland in a store within a store for the first time. Bags are stunning and the mens totes and shoulder bags are perfect for either sex. I adore the reversable Totes in particular. A fabulous bag by Radley caught my eye and Vivienne Westwood doesn’t disappoint either.
