PASTELS AND FLORALS - SIOPAELLA SPRING STYLE It's the first day of spring, y'all. The days are getting longer, the sun is getting brighter and our outfits are getting a colourful update. We love getting a bit of air on our pasty whites and when it's time to get some sunshine on our pins, we rejoice - hurrah for bare legs (if it's good enough for super-babe Angela Scanlon, it's good enough for us, right?). Black tights are banished from our wardrobes from now on and it's pastels, white and cool off-kilter vintage shirts and mini skirts a go-go for all the...

Alexander Wang is arguably one of our favourite designers here at Siopaella. His creations and designs are something that we all mutually love and adore (something that Wang only shares with coffee and dogs, we're a picky bunch). He is known in particular for his iconic Rocco bag. The textured leather and metallic studs used on these bags give it that unmistakable Wang look that you can spot from a mile away. Wang is also known for having one of the most successful collaboration campaign with our high street favourite H&M.

Rag & Bone is was established in 2002 by Nathan Bogle and Marcus Wainwright. It marries together the idea of wearable clothing while still having an edgy, cool tailoring keeping the New York aesthetic that the brand embodies. While Bogle and Wainwright had no formal fashion training the brand prides itself on quality and attention to detail. The brand "continuously redefines urban style." It's a brand we LOVE here at Siopaella due to the classic timelessness of the pieces. They're pieces you'll have forever, will never date and will remain edgy and cool. This Rag & Bone blazer is a piece every wardrobe needs....

Designer Focus - Rick Owens

Posted by 73

If one designer has taken the goth/grunge movement and catapulted it into the mainstream consciousness, it's Rick Owens. A relatively young label, Rick Owens is known for his signature leather jackets - entire collections are built around the wardrobe staple. [ux_image id="45484" image_size="medium" drop_shadow="1"] The designer, famed for his gothic approach, started his eponymous label in 1994 and sold exclusively to LA retailer Charles Gallay until Kate Moss featured in one of his designs in American Vogue. And there's no one like Mossy to amp up the desirability of a designer. Since then, Rick Owens has established the kind of...

BEST PRICE-PER WEAR DESIGNER HANDBAGS AT SIOPAELLA I want you to do something for me. It's not a big ask. Think back to how many times you bought tights, undies, socks and little 'bits' from Penneys. You probably spent €60 in one go without even realizing it! And now count how many designer handbags you own! Not as many? Now imagine this. According to the Independent, the average cost of a night out in Dublin is €81; that's factoring in €41 on pints and the rest on chips, taxis, nightclub entry and babysitters! If you cut down on the nights...

BRAND FOCUS - GUCCI No-one is hotter right now than Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.  His debut for the brand in the autumn/winter 2015 season this February was the most hotly anticipated of the last decade. Michele, who was head of accessories at the storied label since 2002 took over Gucci (our brand focus) from Frida Giannini and has brought the brand in a completely new direction from his predecessor. Not only is Michele the name on everyone's lips, Irish beauty Emily Butcher was hand-picked by Michele himself to make her runway debut for Gucci this autumn/winter. Here at Siopaella, we...

LOUIS VUITTON BRAND FOCUS OUR ENDLESS LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE HERITAGE BRAND What do Miranda Kerr, Fan Bing Bing,  Olivia Palermo and Elle Fanning all have in common? Great taste, oodles of talent and impeccable style with a penchant for heritage designer brand Louis Vuitton. The name Louis Vuitton carries with it some serious weight in the world of designer fashion but its legendary history began with a humble sixteen year old boy who had a dream to become a trunk master. His name? Louis Vuitton. Thus the eponymous label was born and the heritage French brand has grown to...
