Catriona Hanly | Spring Summer ’15 | Fashion Boss



On Tuesday, 3nd March 2015, Irish designer Catriona Hanly hosted a press preview to showcase her first ladieswear capsule collection for Spring Summer 2015.  Catriona is renowned for her stand out creative designs and flare, the collection combines the perfect combination of Spring Summer colours with flattering silhouettes, brightening up your wardrobe with key stand out designs hitting the seasons 70’s and strong whites trends on the head.

In total, the collection has 53 pieces including dresses, blouses, trousers and skirts with a diverse colour palette. There are baby blues, soft pinks, mint greens and corals as well as vibrant statement tones. The fabrics used throughout the collection are versatile and ‘tres chic’ as the patterns and block colours complement one another across the board. I love that Catriona adapted French style influences into the collection, from large bow blouses to elegant silk pieces and chic separates.

On Tuesday evening the debut fashion show was spectacular. From the beautiful setting in Dublin’s No 10 Ormond Quay to the perfectly themed music and excited atmosphere to of course the overall collection. Within minutes it was clear that Catriona had developed a ‘signature look’.

Her appreciation of expensive fabrics comes through in both her SS15 and her AW15 collections, which she showcased jointly. The show was definitely one to remember.

“I based the collections on my life, from New York and Studio 54 to holidays in the south of France, to Marie Antoinette and opulent fabrics from her time; plus, there’s antique lace from my year living in St Germain De Pres in Paris,” said Catriona

I had a great evening at the show and I cannot wait to see what Catriona has in store for us next.
