Jimmy Choo launches Donegal Tweed boots

Luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo teamed up with Donegal Tweed to produce two styles of limited-edition designer boots which were launched at Brown Thomas last week.

The first one is the Breidin (€825) and the other boot is called the Twillen for (€795). Breidin is a cuffed ankle boot and the Twillen is in the shape of a riding boot with a tweed inset.

Keith Duffy of Boyzone was on hand to launch the collection with his wife Lisa (pictured).

Pictured here wearing the Twillen bootie is Lisa Duffy – out of both pairs of boots we prefer this shorter, black bootie with tweed on top.

25% of the proceeds from sales of these boots go to Irish Autism Action. Lisa commented that “it is a cause that is very close to their hearts”, as their own daughter Mia was diagnosed with autism. Keith is patron of Irish Autism Action and has worked hard to promote autism issues.

WhatSheWears.ie went along to the event check out the style.

Keith and Lisa Duffy

Keith looked handsome in a grey chalk pinstripe Tom Ford suit.  Lisa wore a Balmain dress from the Designer Rooms in Brown Thomas. Later at the charity auction, she looked radiant in a cobalt blue dress and a pair of Jimmy Choo booties with diamante detail.

Leigh Arnold

We had the pleasure of speaking to the lovely Leigh Arnold, (actress from RTE’s The Clinic). She showed up to the event with her sister Chloe. Leigh wore a figure hugging gold dress which she borrowed from her sister, and accessorised with a tan coloured belt. The dress itself is from Savida.

Like the rest of us, it’s good to know that this leading lady opts for high street sometimes too. On that note, Leigh’s co-star in The Clinic, Amy Huberman, was spotted in H&M by St Stephen’s Green last Thursday and wore a fab Topshop tea dress when she judged ladies day at the Dublin Horse Show.
