Coleen Rooney scores a winner with flower power
It certainly feels like winter, but will we have to fast-track straight through to woolies and coats and bypass sundresses and bikinis altogether?
Wardrobe conundrums aside, at least we are catching glimpses of what autumn/winter 2014 fashions will look like.
Eager Irish designer Emma Manley was first out of the traps in April and yesterday it was the turn of Littlewoods Ireland. The brand showcased future fashions on Dublin's South William Street, and there was a heavy leaning on painterly florals and blousy blooms.
WAG Coleen Rooney mixed botantical prints with scuba fabric, a practical substance which has won fashionistas hearts because it doesn't crease, a boon at holiday time.
A Myleene Klass floral midi dress (€62) with a print of classically painted flowers attracted lots of attention.
Myleen may have been a classical musician before she hit the world of pop with the band Hear'Say but she displayed a strong rock-chic vibe with her AW collection.
All clothes from the new season's collection are available to buy from July 17.
