Last Thursday, I went to 56 Merrion Square, D2; the flagship store of Irish designer Louise Kennedy. I sat in the most beautiful 5-storey Georgian Townhouse watching her SS11 collection showcase. It was all about neon colour blocking; lace shift dresses and jersey maxi dresses in bubblegum pink, turquoise, buttercup yellow, all mixed with inky blues.
The backless maxi dresses were stunning and in every colour in the collection.
The 70’s were a big influence for this latest collection, the glamorous dresses reminded me of Faye Dunaway’s post-Oscars, pool-side chic.
The prim and pretty Marly sequinned dress was given a modern twist, worn with the Lulu Fox fur collar…
A token skull-print; in this case, on a cashmere wrap…
Prices: Dresses, €595 – €1,295, Cashmere Wrap €895.
