Courtney Smith has been a style maven in Ireland for close to a decade, and last year she released her first collection with Shoe Lab.

We didn't think it could get any better, but Courtney is gearing up for the launch of her second collection and we're totally in love with it.

Speaking to the Style Icon nominee for the inaugural SHEmazing! Awards, she said that she wanted to keep the campaign very authentic: "The vibe for the shoot was to truly show people that kinda rock'n'roll vibe we were inspired by.

"Bring it back to music as the main influence which is why we shot in a recording studio," she explained.

The new campaign is staying very true to Courtney's unique style, and she wanted to show how she would style the boot collection with her own clothes.

"This season we felt it important to showcase my personal style more which is what inspired the collection in the first place, so all the clothing is actually from my own wardrobe… showing how I would style up my own boots."

And when asked about how she feels to be launching a second collection, she said that she couldn't be more over the moon.

"[A] second collection for me is a huge deal because it's only off the back of the success and demand from the first collection.

"We decided to be even bolder this time and kick it up a notch with the fabrics and styles too so I hope people will love them for summer, for festivals and in general really."

The Rock Luxe collection introduces The Bolans, The Stardust, The Blackhearts, The Richards and The Iggys. Fans will also be delighted to know that due to a huge demand, the Suzi Q boots are back from last season with a new green leather and suede combo.

The collection launches online and in store on May 2, and we basically want every single style available.



Courtney Smith has been one of our go-to stylists for years now and we always take inspiration from her fab outfits and bold fashion choices.

Well, Courts has teamed up with Buffalo Shoe Lab to bring us a capsule collection that any fashionista will die for.

Taking major inspiration from 70s music and vintage style, Courtney went back to her designer roots with this one and the outcome is divine (we already have our eyes on the gorge baby pink boots!).

From slouchy thigh-highs to metallic ankle grazers, there will be something to suit every style in the collection.

Speaking about the new venture, Courtney said: “It has been a dream come true, working so symbiotically with head Shoe Lab designer Audrey Murray and teaming her creative expertise with my vision.

"For me, this is such a natural partnership as Buffalo has always been my go-to shoe store both as a stylist and a girl obsessed with amazing footwear.”

If you want a pair of these babies for yourself, check out Buffalo Show Lab website here, or drop into the Shoe Lab stores on Exchequer Street from 9 November and in Arnotts from 10 November.

Prices start from €155.
