During London Fashion Week last Fall, the team and I had a chance to meet the Irish Designers. One of the collections we saw was We Are Islanders. Now with Spring right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share more of the collection to get you in the spirit of the season.
The We Are Islanders SS16 Collection — The Journey to Hy-Brasil — is a “questioning of the accepted idea of form, gender and line”. It’s composed of a series of hand-painted silks, cotton twills, muslins and Irish linen, with salmon skin leather finishings. There is fluidity. There is movement. There is also an island casualness that permeates throughout all the pieces for a completely relaxed and lighthearted feel.
And true to its Irish roots, the entire collection uses 100% Irish linens and all We Are Islanders pieces are made in Ireland using locally produced and sustainable materials.
