FIRST LOOK: Thalia Heffernan leads top models into new season style at Clerys

Top Irish model Thalia Heffernan was back on home turf as she showed off a pair of designer wellies and a Jack Murphy raincoat that would be perfect for the Ploughing Championships next week.

After just returning from Australia, the model opened the Clerys Autumn-Winter Show 2014, which had plenty to attract the young and classic shopper.

The fashion show, Clerys' second major one this year, was streamed live so online customers could watch the trends that the iconic Irish retailer has bought into.

Thalia was sporting a pair of printed wellies along with a wine-coloured Jack Murphy coat (€84.95), Joules knitwear (€92.95) and a tweed skirt (€79.95) from the same label, which is also a favourite for the outdoor set.

There was certainly an eclectic mix of classic fashions cheek by jowl with quirky, new labels and affordable brands, all put together by stylist Sinead Keenan.

The show outside Clerys' famous Tea Rooms featured a bewitching mix of florals and paisleys, faux furs and apres ski, fur-lined puffas and parkas. Brocades and coats reflected the retro, vintage glamour of the Bloomsbury era and there was a sneak preview of snow boots and googles from the soon-to-open 'Brand Shop' at Clerys.

Newness in store came from interesting brands such as Les 100 Ciels, an interesting cashmere firm started by French designer Camille Serra who uses lots of greys for the collection, which is exclusive to Clerys in Ireland.
