Hi everyone. I hope you all had a good week. It’s certainly been a busy one here at The Irish Store, with our 10th birthday celebrations and the upcoming launch of our Fall/Winter 21 Collection which drops next weekend! This week, I’m so excited to give you all a sneak peek at our most exciting collection to date. Expect exclusive pieces, designer collaborations and exciting new colors on some of our bestselling customer favorites.
Our Wild Atlantic Way Photoshoot
It being our 10th birthday year, we decided to pull out all the stops when it came to choosing locations for this years photoshoot. There’s nothing like the majestic landscape of the west of Ireland to provide the perfect backdrop for any new collection and we’re thrilled with the results! This year we traveled to Kerry and West Cork as well as my beloved County Sligo, taking in some stunning scenery on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Our Sligo shoot took us to many of my favorite spots in the heart of Yeats Country including Mullaghmore Head and Classiebawn Castle (pictured above) and the stunning Streedagh beach (below).
We also made a behind the scenes video from our Sligo photo shoot to whet your appetite! Check it out below;
Kerry & West Cork
When it comes to dramatic backdrops, West Cork and Kerry offer an embarrassment of riches. Our travels for the next leg of our photoshoot took us to some of Ireland’s favorite locations on The Wild Atlantic Way including Molls Gap, Healy Pass and Sheep’s Head.
Fall/Winter 21 – Sneak Peek Time!
1. The Ultimate Fall/Winter Coat
Add some classic Celtic elegance to your fall/winter look with this super chic Irish Tweed Torc Coat. Beautifully designed and crafted from wool tweed with a satin lining, this stunning piece from Mucros Weavers comes in a classic gray herringbone tweed or a rich earthy plaid. The cut is classic with smart lapels, loose three quarter length sleeves and 2 patch pockets. A key piece for any discerning fall/winter wardrobe.
2. New Season Colors
Time for a much needed pop of color for those fall/winter wardrobes. I’m just loving our customer favorite Donegal Blasket Sweater in new misty pink!
The Rusheen Cropped Aran sweater is definitely one of my favorites for Fall/Winter 21, especially in this gorgeous teal color. Exquisite Aran stitch craft meets contemporary design in this must have Aran sweater for her. The fit is generous and relaxed with a wide crew neck, dropped sleeves, a side slit and a short cropped length. Featuring exquisitely crafted Aran stitch patterns in luxuriously soft Donegal Luxe Melange yarn.
3. Designer Aran Must-Haves
After the success of last year’s collaboration, we’re delighted to team up once more with internationally acclaimed fashion designer, Paul Costelloe. The latest addition to our exclusive collection from Paul comes in versions for both him and her. His unique take on the classic Aran sweater features striking Aran stitch patterns of diamond and cable. The fit is relaxed and boxy with a wide crew neck and a ribbed hem and cuffs.
4. Exclusive to The Irish Store
Here’s one of our new pieces from our fall/winter 21 collection of exclusive designs for The Irish Store. The Glendalough Aran Sweater features a classic crew neck and wealth of beautifully detailed Aran stitch patterns, making it the perfect all round sweater for fall/winter. Made from gorgeously soft merino wool in versions for both him and her. And remember its an Irish Store exclusive so you won’t find it anywhere else. Can’t wait to share the rest of our exclusives with you all!
Well that’s just a small taste of Fall/Winter 21 part 1. Launch day is this Friday 24 September so save the date!
