I was lucky enough to be invited to the A|wear offices today to preview their beautiful new summer collection by Peter O’Brien. I was blown away, it was so different that what I expected; it was an ultra feminine and utterly timeless capsule collection – (only 24 pieces in total). There are dresses, blouses, sweaters, skirts and a mac. The collection has a small yet effective palette of duck egg blue, navy blue and cream. The fabrics are luxurious; Crepe de Chine, lace and cashmere and all the dresses and blouses are 100 percent silk. The stand out pieces have to be the dresses in fact and I love the sheer yokes and the on-trend polka dot printed silk chiffon.
Here are a couple of Peter O’Brien’s Sketches…
And here are the final pieces from those sketches.
Prices start from €120 for the blouses and cashmere sweaters and go to €190 for the silk dresses and goes on sale on Wednesday, July 8th at Grafton St., Henry St., Dundrum Town Centre and on-line at www.awear.com
