The new Spring / Summer collection from Lennon Courtney has landed. Created by two of our fav fashion stylists and style commentators – Sonya Lennon and Brendan Courtney, Lennon Courtney strengthens its reputation for beautiful, functional and clever dressing with their third collection titled ‘Vacation’. Inspired by sunshine, weekend getaways and country escapes, the collection, light and easy, is as always designed to flatter a woman’s form featuring some key pieces that aim to enhance and provide the foundation for a fully functional and sensual wardrobe (we like this).
Staying true to Lennon Courtney’s philosophy, the core palette is that of muted tones in light greys and blues, with some added statement accents in fuchsia and royal blue. Known for celebrating femininity, one of the elements I love from all there collections has been the fabrics including stretch canvas, silk and cashmere. All made for luxurious and comfortable wearing. Irish made knitwear also plays a key role in the collection- with luxuriously soft cashmeres and lambs wool, light and delicate, in the form of off the shoulder tops and knitted tees.
If you are looking for a statement piece from the collection, the fuchsia pink silk tee is my fav. It gives us that pop of colour amongst a sea of beautiful capsule pieces. It is an exciting time in Lennon Courtney studios with their impending UK launch in February with designer boutique Wolf & Badger, in Notting Hill. Named as one of Britain’s Top Boutique’s by Vogue UK, the retailers’ ethos for supporting independent designers and local manufacture marries very well with that of Lennon Courtney.
Lennon Courtney is available to buy at Harvey Nichols, Arnotts, Kilkenny Group and 17 retailers nationwide, it is also available online at Lennoncourtney.com. Great home grown talent!
