First Look at AW11: Littlewoods

It felt like summer had finally arrived on 8th June as we found ourselves sipping champagne as we left the sun basked Exchequer Street to enter a hidden lift (why had we never seen this before when buying our gourmet sandwiches and not-to-be-found-anywhere-else veggies?) which whisked us up to the top floor of  Fallon & Byrne.

However, upon entering the Studio 54-esque surroundings, summer was far from our host’s mind as Littlewoods Ireland previewed their Autumn Winter 2011 collection, which goes on sale online this week.

We saw some familiar trends from last year which included capes, wide legged jumpsuits and yeti gilets – all prompted sighs of relief with the thoughts of up cycling but others which saw “reminders to invest” notes frantically being scribbled down were Obi belts, 30’s style fur on coats and 20’s dropped waist flapper dresses.

Guests admiring disco ball cupcakes (let’s face it, no-one ever eats them, it’s such a shame!) and bubbly included yours truly, Bairbre Power, Deirdre Morrissey, Lauren McCreery, Corina Gaffey, Courtney Smith and Sinead van Kampen.

Stylist Cathy O’Connor who presented the salon show, sported a black one shouldered jumpsuit (from Littlewoods, naturally) which she paired with the most fabulous yellow and black bib necklace by New Zealand designer Turet Knuefermann which, when interrogated asked, told us she got on Samplesale.ie.

Our personal favourite piece from the evening? A black Tuxedo jacket for €79. Guests left happy with a choice of mini Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Creams, an iPod shuffle or Nails Inc polishes in their goody bags.
