Hi Everyone. As we make way for the launch of our autumn/winter collection next month (which I’m very excited about!), I thought I would share my favorite Irish classics from The Irish Store Collection. This is classic Celtic clothing at its finest and the following pieces are among our best selling customer favorites year in, year out. Definite must have pieces for any discerning Celtic wardrobe. We’re also mid way through our biggest ever clearance sale so there’s never been a better time to shop for these key pieces!
Celtic Clothing at The Irish Store
1. Traditional Aran Sweater
So first up it’s not just an Irish classic but an absolute must-have wardrobe staple along with fashion icons such as the LBD and the biker jacket. Recently the pop superstar Taylor Swift wore an Aran sweater for the launch of her new album and as a result we saw a definite upsurge in sales (thanks Taylor!). Of course, Taylor is only the latest in a long line of celebrities endorsing our national sweater, going all the way back to the ultra glamorous Grace Kelly in the 1950s. Our best selling crew neck Aran is crafted from the finest merino wool and comes in no less than 9 gorgeous colors.
2. Irish Country Walking Cape
The classic Irish cape is a design legend and exudes effortless elegance. Its history dates back to medieval times and its look never dates. Our top selling cape really has it all. Made from pure new wool in a rich moss green, it features a buttoned front, 2 deep front pockets and an attached scarf which doubles as a hood to give a classic Irish country feel. What’s more, it comes from the renowned Hourihan of Dublin so the finest quality is assured. This is a definite investment piece to see you through many seasons in classic Celtic style.
3. Aran Boyfriend Cardigan
The boyfriend cardigan is another timeless wardrobe staple. Perfect with boots and your favorite jeans for the ultimate casual look. Our perennial customer favorite Aran boyfriend cardigan is beautifully crafted from easy to wear merino wool and features traditional Aran basket stitch in the main body and classic cable trim. Choose classic cream, army green or charcoal.
4. Irish Newsboy Cap
So next up it’s the perfect accessory to add a stylish finishing touch to any look. Our newsboy cap is given the Celtic treatment by none other than Mucros Weavers in County Kerry. Using age-old techniques, these stunning hats are made from pure wool and feature a soft leather flower motif at the side. Choose classic herringbone (pictured) or add a pop of color with our eye-catching shades of pink, purple and green.
5. Glenmore Aran Dress
My final pick is this stunning on-trend Aran dress. The Glenmore comes from our Autumn/Winter collection 2019 and the reviews have been glowing! The design is exclusive to The Irish Store and features beautifully crafted traditional Aran stitch patterns of honeycomb, diamond and classic cable. The yarn is super soft merino.
Time to sign off now. Don’t forget our biggest ever clearance sale is now on so you can get the classic Irish look at a fraction of the price!
