Hi everyone. Well, it’s been a very busy time here at The Irish Store putting the finishing touches to our most exciting collection to date. Our Fall/Winter 22 Collection drops very soon and we are so excited to share it with you! Expect new must-have Aran styles, some 5 star favorites in exciting new season colors and a very special collection of premium designer pieces. Ahead of our launch, here’s a behind the scenes sneak peek from our Fall/Winter 22 photo shoot!
Fall/Winter 22. The Collection
This year, for the first time, our photo shoot took place in the stunning Connemara region in the west of Ireland. This part of Ireland is famed for its dramatic scenery. Our shoot took place in Killary Harbour near the picturesque village of Leenane. Killary is one of only three glacial fjords in Ireland and the landscape here is truly awe-inspiring with the Maumturk Mountains providing the most dramatic of backdrops to showcase our Fall/Winter 22 Collection.
Yet again, we’re delighted to be working with renowned Irish photographer Barry Mc Call. One of Ireland’s most established photographers, his stunning fashion work speaks for itself and he has worked with many Hollywood and fashion luminaries including Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Liam Neeson and Colin Farrell to name but a few.
