This week, dear readers, there are not one, but TWO store openings to watch out for:
Matthew Williamson & Temperley London at Kildare Village
First up, comes Catherine Mc Cormack International Collections, previously of Adare. Co Limerick, who has opened a pop-up in Kildare Village with amazing brands at outlet prizes.
The shop, open until 7pm seven days a week, will feature international designers such as Matthew Williamson, Temperley London, Alice by Temperley, Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Tibi NY, Manoush and Kenzo, will be reduced by up to 70%. Just to give you an idea, here’s a sample of the designer savings to be had:
Temperley London dress, RRP €900, KV price €405
Milly New York fitted coat, RRP €830, KV price €400
Matthew Williamson silk dress, RRP €720, KV price €320
Temperley London silk knot dress, RRP €720, KV price €320
Rockport launched their first retail venture in Ireland last October through a women’s footwear concession in Clerys, when we were bowled over by their offering.
Today, they’ve opened their first stand alone store in Ireland at 33 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2 where they’ll sell mens and women’s shoes and women’s accessories.
The secret to their success, we believe, is the adiPRENE ® by adidas ® technology that makes each of their style’s walkable and comfortable.
Having viewed their autumn winter 11 collection already, we can tell you that there are some amazing pumps, loafers, brogues, courts, riding boots and Chelsea boots in store for the coming season, including a shoe collaboration with Barbour for the lads to look forward to!
