Beautiful threads for chic chicks

Lucy Clarke, musician and mother-of-two, played Glastonbury with all-girl rock group Chicks the day she finished her Leaving Cert. Although she chose not to carry on in the music industry, the kind of colourful, handmade clothes Chicks were known for are very evident in the gorgeous range of childrenswear she now designs with husband, composer Simon O'Connor. Using local weavers, knitters and seamstresses, Si+Lu have developed a stunning range of sheepskin coats, knitted stripy jumpers, hand-printed T-shirts, earmuffs and more. The colours reflect the soft tones of an Irish autumn, while the styles are sturdy and appealingly unisex. These are clothes made to be worn well, then passed down the line.

WORN WELL: Si+Lu childrenswear is sturdy and handmade
