“Directional clothes for practical lives”
Sonya Lennon & Brendan Courtney have been styling Irish women for a very long time and by the looks of their SS13 collection they have been taking notes of what Irish women want, and need, in their wardrobes.
Their collection consists of understated yet well structured and precise pieces. The minimalist feel to their designs allows busy modern day women to look stylish and chic without any of the hassle. Best of all this collection is Irish designed and made, and so caters specifically for us – the Irish woman! As Sonya herself says, Irish women don’t like showing off their arms. While I’m not going to get bogged down with all the reasons why, let’s just say the weather/lack of a tan may not help. Lennon Courtney has designed a variety of options to keep those upper arms hidden without letting the style suffer. The Techno Bell Dress is a perfect example of this, a black knee length dress with half sleeves, a crew neckline and pockets - it is perfect for both the workplace and social events. The Bell shape suits almost every body shape and keeps the Irish woman fashionable and just as importantly, comfortable.
Little style tip: This dress will go great with the Lennon Courtney Cashmere Stole (for that pesky Irish weather again)!
