What Kate loves at Kalu
With its thick velvet drapes, luxurious dresses and cabinets of designer jewellery, Naas-based boutique Emporium Kalu is an Aladdin’s cave for style-hungry shoppers.
And it has some real treats in store with new labels Maria Grachvogel and Libelula. British designer Maria is a firm favourite with fashion editors and front rowers. Her collections are full of flowing crepe dresses, silk skirts and draped shirts. This nude catsuit, €1,129, is divine and would look amazing with killer heels, and a martini glass in hand. The other hot new label to hit Kildare is Libelula, a personal favourite of the new Duchess of Cambridge. This line also has some fantastic sundresses, which are just perfect for those lazy, hazy summer days. Emporium Kalu, 16 Main St, Naas, Co Kildare, tel: (045) 896-222, or see www.emporiumkalu.ie
