I went to the & Other Stories Spring Summer Launch Event, which was hosted at the Marshes Library just on the outskirts of Dublin's City Centre.
& Other Stories is due to open by the end of this year on Grafton St. We don't have a date just yet - but I am praying it's soon! I'm lusting over the new collection after having a sneak preview of their SS17! Take a look at the new prints and textures below.
The new divine beauty range under both Modern Bohemian and Bronzed Beauty. & Other Stories has a growing range of both face cosmetics & skincare which smells absolutely amazing. From body scrubs, oil, to bold lipsticks and eye shadow shades. We even saw some fabulous smelling candles which I'll definitely be picking up from for my room!
& Other Stories has two design teams creating collections for the SS17 Season. Each designer within the company has its own expressions and aesthetic provided across their lines. Providing endless styling options for their fashion clients. For the Spring Summer 17 Collection - Paris Atelier introduces a feminine collection. While the Stockholm Atelier shows us tailored garments that plays with volume as well as contrasts.
"Feminine and extravagant, this collection explores the decadent bourgeoisie. The look is flourishing in lavish details, rich colours and floral prints, reinventing the perception of French flair" - Philomene Tellaroli, Accessories Designer (& Other Stories)
Maximalist Joy - Paris Atelier is made up of bold floral prints, high collars and embroidered textures. The feminine silhouettes are showing us bell sleeves, ruffles while keeping the garments modern and in season. The palette consists of pinks, warm reds, blues, whites. We see statement jewellery to match this collection full of chunky brooches, mini bags and statement earrings & rings.
"Dress up or down your outfit this season with a pair of contradictory shoes. Mix casual with stiletto heels or dress down tailored pieces with soft easy flats. Find an effortless look by playing with proportions and contrasts" - Nicole Wilson, Shoe Designer (& Other Stories)
Renew Volumes - Stockholm Atelier presents a strong, minimalistic SS17 collection. Influenced by 1930's. The palette is made up from light pastel blues, yellows, whites with a contrast of bright green and black. & Other Stories is known for their tailored garments and power dressing everyone who wears their clothing. This collection is paired up with graphic jewellery and boxy heels dressing each outfit up, or a pair of soft leather pumps to dress any outfit down. This collection is an innovative approach adapted to the modern woman's wardrobe. Contemporary shapes with volume and shape to all pieces.
