SS15 | Brights

Hi guys,

Since it is finally starting to feel like Summer.. we thought what better way to celebrate it than with a #youtube #video! We were inspired by all the gorgeous colours for this season and we had to pick only three because I know the video would have been too long otherwise so here are three of the main colours this season.

Red:

This season, even though we would associate red with A/W, red is a popping colour for this season. However this season’s red has a hint of orange thrown in there to make it more interesting and we love it!

Blue:

Ah the stunning pale blue or powder blue as it is also known is such a delicate colour. It is a colour that we will be seeing more of next season and we can’t blame the designers who made it so because it truly is a gorgeous colour.

Lemon:

Lemon once again is back and we love this pop of colour which you can tone down or wear it all over while rockin it!

Paris

Hey guys,

As you already probably know we went to Paris two weeks ago to buy AW15 pieces for the store. We can’t wait for you to see what is coming! Of course we had to take some photos to give you a sneak peek into a stylist’s buying world 🙂

We have to say..Paris is definitely one of the cities you should go to if you love fashion! We are in LOVE with the fashion in Paris and we have found two perfect additions to the store…we can’t wait for you all to see them!

Cue the photo diary..

Getting ready to leave!

Arrived, checked in The Hilton in Opera , typically disappointing, but it is hard to get a good hotel in Paris so if anyone ever has any recommendations please let me know. Walked across the road for some dinner, a really cute french pub/restaurant, jammed with excitable french enjoying a glass of wine after work. Tucked into a huge bowl mussels and a glass of red.

Before heading to the famous Galleries Lafayette for a spot of shopping. Purchased a fab but practical pair of work-boots! Whatever it is about Paris I always buy a bottle of Perfume. This time I went for a classic, Aqua di Gioia Eua de Parfum. Love it. If you haven’t been to Galleries Lafayette and Paris, then it is one for the “places to see before I die” list Ispans for blocks with internal connecting bridges. You could get lost in this spectacular building. There is nothing you won’t find in here.

Our first appointment was at 8am with a new brand we have not stocked before. The showrooms were jammed to capacity and with a french fashion television station outside filming what was the beginning of Paris’ most hectic week for fashion buyers. People travel from every corner of the world for this week and the excitement was mounting as we commenced our journey to find something new and exciting for OD. Arriving at Who’s Next the exhibition the crowds were insane. Security was high but moved swiftly. There are about 8 halls, 5 of which we were anxious to get into so a fast pace was needed.

Here is a little video to show you what it is like for us inside..

The first hall was fame which is a hall for ready to wear. It has 250 brands and features young designers, as well as a selection of the most couture designers under the label ATELIER.

We went through range after range looking for something to jump out at us but nothing really screamed at us.

When in Paris….decided it would be rude not to accept a glass of champagne even though it is only 11.30am! You have to love the french. Ill send you on this pic. You would often see a Bugaboo being pushed around this and all the exhibition, buyers taking there little ones to the fair! Personally I do not know how they concentrate. I couldn’t do it. But when I spotted this French lady, with her hair in a chignon, I was shocked to see two little dogs in the buggy. Never seen anything like this before so for all your dog lovers, do you think there is a market for them?

Found an amazing brand of shoes with interchangeable heels which we are super excited about! These are going to take the world by storm and we are the first to have them in Ireland.

We took an evening stroll down to Notre Dame. I love the architecture of the Cathedral..no wonder it is highly considered as one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture.
