I’ve been a fan of Sinéad Doyle for a while now. I have watched as her collections have grown and developed over the past couple of years (see A/W’11 here). That progression resulted in some exceptional details in last years autumn/winter collections. The use of sequins, pleats, woven leather and wool and silk corsetry made for a unique and ultimately wearable collection. Double lapels being my personal favourite, the delight was in the detail indeed.
This A/W 2012-13, the ‘Resurgence’ collection still has the details but the collection has taken a more sleek turn. Structured jackets with chiffon sleeves, hoods and leather T.Shirts are key elements as are mixed textures and fabrics; namely knits and wool with leather and chiffon. Although in a mostly grey/black palette, the collection also includes some great, brightly printed separates in pink, gold and blue.
