We’re lov­ing Ir­ish duo Jill & Gill whose epony­mous la­bel rep­re­sents as­pi­ra­tional women through il­lus­tra­tion, print and style. Lim­ited runs keep things ex­clu­sive, while re­spon­si­ble sourc­ing en­sures shop­pers can in­vest in the ap­parel’s jour­ney – not just its de­sign. Our pick? This Boss Lady re­cy­cled wo­ven tote bag (€15). Who said de­ci­sion­mak­ing had to be hard work? Avail­able on­line and at Bloss, Dun­drum Town Cen­tre.

SUS­TAIN­ABLE STYLE

In our need to es­cape the chaos, seren­ity acts as a cure for our daily rou­tines and for the in­spi­ra­tion of en­vi­ron­men­tally com­mit­ted gar­ments, like the ones in the new MANGO Com­mit­ted cap­sule col­lec­tion. The col­lec­tion of gar­ments are de­signed with re­cy­cled fab­rics that use sus­tain­able fi­bres as part of a big­ger com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing the use of 50% sus­tain­able cot­ton by 2022.

CRUSH COR­NER

Ir­ish Socksci­ety has joined forces with Ir­ish Artist Shane O’Mal­ley to launch their first artist edi­tion socks. Emerg­ing from Ire­land’s vi­brant graf­fiti sub­cul­ture, O’Mal­ley works in the medi­ums of paint, mu­rals and art in­stal­la­tions. His work fo­cuses on the themes of iden­tity, men­tal and emo­tional health, jour­ney and self-hood, mak­ing it a very pow­er­ful pair­ing with the sock de­sign­ers who be­lieve “that even socks can be a good medium to carry a happy and in­spir­ing mes­sage.” Price: €9 plus p+p.
