Shopwatch: BT2

Daniella Moyle and Ruth O’Neill, contestants on Total Exposure (which our resident stylist Ingrid Hoey styled), teamed up with Dublin store BT2 to help launch their Autumn/Winter ’09 range.

Perfect for you designer lovers who want shop for your glad rags in the one place, BT2, the younger Brown Thomas store’s  motto this season is “to unite all ones needs under one roof”!

This winter they’ve added new labels such as 3.1 Philip Lim, Paul & Joe, Love Moschino, and niche brands such as Erfurt Santi, Jachs amongst others.

BT2 at Dundrum Town Centre has added fifteen new fashion labels including Diane Von Furstenberg, Twenty8Twelve, Selected Femme, Nocture, 3.1 Philip Lim, Gestuz and Paul & Joe.

These labels will join the already stocked Juicy Couture, Numph, See by Chloe, Pinko, Save the Queen and others.

New to these labels?

If you’re reading this column then of course you’re not! Otherwise, here’s a quick rundown from our wish list:

Diane Von Furstenberg

DvF Is our go-to label for flattering wrap dresses. Season in, season out, she never fails to disappoint.  This season she’s created a tunic dress style (pictured) prices at €360.

3.1 Philip Lim

A fashion designer’s collection is always inspired by a theme. This autumn winter, chez Lim embraces 60’s London – think (designer) Ossie Clark, Sergeant Pepper and Jimi Hendrix.

3.1 Philip Lim has mastered the coat this A/W, so if you’re looking for a rock star coat, look no further.


Their statement piece is a leather jacket which retails for under £500 but we’re hoping that BT2 stock their green sequined dress (which is very Balmain looking!).

Although Sienna Miller is a style leader who has reinvented the boho look, she and her sister Savannah’s collection is in its infancy in the designer world having only made a debut at London Fashion week in February, so let’s see how this collection evolves in seasons to come.

See by Chloe

Have an amazing gold sequinedPleat Pocket” dress that we are lusting after – metallic and sequined being two trends that continue into autumn winter 09. The fancy frock has slant hip pockets too. We could easily see fashion front-runners wearing it with opaque tights and heels for a red-carpet-ready look.
