Joanne Hynes Collaboration X Dunnes Stores

As Sunday’s go – when your team are not, for once, in the All Ireland GAA Football Final – Sunday was a pretty great day. Thanks to the lovely Joanne Hynes and her collaboration dropping into Dunne Stores.

The first Irish collaboration for the designer – and an exercise that Dunnes are nailing these days – who has taken some time out to have a family, did not disappoint. It was one hundred percent Joanne. All her amazing quirks, shapes and colours; mirrored perspex triangles on a pink jumper, diamond studs with a large bow on a black bomber jacket, and of course, her amazing embellished collars. The collection – and even the setting in the Stephens Green SC, which looked like you have walked into a Joanne Hynes boutique – felt like a step back in time to what Hynes does best and what she is loved for. Unique, wearable pieces, that can take you from day to night.

Part two of this collaboration is due in store on October 18th – I am told there is a pom pom coat, dreamy! There are still plenty of pieces left in this collection, so get shopping here.

The IT List

weekend

It’s Friyay! And we are excited. A) It is sunny in Dublin B) A fab Topshop skirt that hasn’t fit in months tied up on me this morning. It’s the small things.

culture-night1

I will keep this short. Go and do something for Culture Night 2016, wherever you are in the country. There are tones of amazing free events on tonight.

If in Dublin, go and see something for the Tiger Dublin Fringe. While Panti Bliss’ RIOT and Hot Brown Honey are getting a lot of attention, there are plenty of productions to suit all budgets and tastes, and nice to support the small guy/gal too.

wellfest

And if sweating, meditation or bending is more your bag, check out Wellfest in Herbert Park for a jam packed schedule of fitness classes, mediation, yoga, and mindfulness. Something for mind and body.

Have culture/fitness filled weekend, and feel extra smug on Monday.

New York Fashion Week Street Style Favourites

shoes

On a productivity scale of one to ten, ours has been at all time low this week due to the – several hundred – Instagram feeds, stories,  Snapchats, tweets (seriously, please don’t let anyone create anymore social media outlets we need to be on, I’m exhausted) we are following from some of the most influential and stylish people in fashion attending this week’s New York Fashion Week. It is a smorgasbord of amazing street style fashion and even more amazing shows and presentations – I’m looking at you JCrew and Dolpozo. The latter, a genius.

For the first time we get to feel like we are there with the frow bloggers and editors by watching – often seconds later – what they have just seen on the catwalk. It’s a thrill, and will do me until I finally blag my way into NYFW! You read it here, I will. #bucketlist

Here is a roundup of some of WEARIT/dublin’s favourite street style looks to so far.

H&M Studio Collection Lands in Store

og

Ah, H&M, you’ve gone and done it again. Made me spend all my wages in the first week of the month. Luckily I’m a big fan of beans.

The new Studio Collection – which hit stores this morning, September 8th – is dreamy, romantic, with a touch of goth and some interesting autumnal tones. In particular, I’m loving the loose tailoring and colour of the Jacquard-weave jacket and trousers, which is now in my shopping cart! There is a beautiful touch of velvet with the silver grey trouser suit, with white shirts and exaggerated sleeves featuring throughout.

H&M is the queen of the high street, and with studios collections like this and a Kenzo collaboration in November – eek!! – they are sure to hold onto their crown and break our banks accounts for many seasons to come.

P.S. I only bought the jacket because Man Repeller wore it. Obvs!
