Get ready to splurge next season!

We just arrived back from Harvey Nichols' press presentation where we discovered ALL the exciting new trends and brands for the forthcoming season. 

We were greeted by the Style Concierge of the store with tasty cakes and drinks to snack on (we obvs just couldn't say no). 

Anita Barr, fashion buying director at Harvey Nichols, presented the trends for A/W with gorgeous Dublin model Yomiko Chen showcasing the looks in Dundrum Town Centre. 

Anita joined HN in April and it's clear that she has big dreams for the major fashion house. 

She brought us through a comprehensive presentation about all the new trends and brands that will be entering the store over the next few months – and they are ALL right on the money. 

The key trends included Studio 54 which was full of decadent and luxurious pieces from brands such as Finders Keepers, Galvan and Alice + Olivia. 

Victoriana, the next key trend, is inspired by modern gothic looks from Temperly and Talbot Runhoff. Expect to see a lot of lace and velvet pieces in the gorgeous collections. 

Rebel Rebel was our favourite trend from the afternoon, with a mix of grunge and rock inspired looks. Isabel Marant, DKNY and Belstaff will be your go-to brands if you want to achieve the adventurous look. 

There will be an array of new clothing and accessories brands entering the Dublin store next season too; Noir Sachin & Babi, Hugo Boss, Crea Concept, Canada Goose and Kenzo will fill the shops floors. 

Meanwhile, hitting UK stores next month are Adeam, Mugler, Fendi, Mr & Mrs and Saflyaa – which Gwyneth Palthrow is a huge fan of. But why are we telling you about the new UK brands? Because you can get them here too. Hurrah!

With Harvey Nicks' new Click and Collect service you can order a piece from any British store and collect it in Dundrum. Handy!

To complement all the changes throughout the stores in Ireland and Britain, Harvey Nichols is also launching a Style Academy in October – an exclusive training programme for store sales advisors.

Harvey Nichols Dublin director Kenny Robertson also said: “Harvey Nichols is looking forward to celebrating ten years in Ireland this October. 

"This autumn we are very excited to promote the full range of brands and services available in-store and introducing Style Academy matching exceptional service with styling expertise offering customers the ultimate shopping experience.”

We are really looking forward to all new brands, trends and expertise that will be hitting the store in the next few months. 

We even have our eyes on a few piece already!



Isabel Marant has a problem with other designs of her wedge trainers – they’re “super-ugly”!

The French designer spoke with Women’s Wear Daily and told them she cannot wear her own design too often any more although they are still special: “They still have something special, even though there are a lot of copies, and the bad copies are super-ugly.”

The sneaker, known as The Beckett was nine months being designed and three years after they first appeared they still sell out often. That is not surprising when the likes of Miranda Kerr, Kate Bosworth and many other celebrities often seen wearing them!
