Spring News from the West
Posted by Michele Hehir on 2nd Mar 2015
Will someone tell me where February went?? Seriously, these first few months of 2015 have gone by so quickly, I hope it’s not a sign that the rest of the year is going to go by as quick.
Well, here in Hehir HQ, we’ve had a really busy month. We couldn’t wait to get the shop reopened but as soon as we did, Brian & I had to head off to London looking for new menswear brands- he has some fab new styles in, both in the suits and the casual gear, and more arriving daily, so it’s really worth a visit just to pop in and see what’s there.
Every week since, we have been away buying stock for Autumn/Winter- It’s not the worst time to buy because we’re just over the Winter season & we have all the notes our customers have told us about what they need or would like to see more of in Winter. We have seen a little colour, not too much, but some lovely chocolate browns, deep greens and wine/maroon. At the end of the day, whatever we buy, we have to love and I have to hope you’ll love it too!! Shoe-wise, there seems to be a big move away from knee-high boots – we had seen that trend in the shop as well last year, towards ankle boots and shoe boots, and again brown is featuring prominently!! But don’t worry ladies, I will never not buy black and we still have knee-high boots ordered!!
So, it’s lovely to come home and see the fab job Maria & Maureen are doing with the merchandising of all the gorgeous new Spring/Summer stock. I know it’s still pretty miserable outside but you’re all telling us the windows are cheering you up and you seem to be very happy with the new stock so far.
A couple of lovely new labels have joined the stable this year- Naya, a beautiful, jersey-like, fluid range- long dresses, layered jackets, beautiful knitwear- really versatile, wearable pieces, and Avoca Anthology- this is definitely a really “pretty”look- liberty print dresses, dainty blouses, cashmere knits- really beautiful pieces- You can check them out on the website or even better, pop in & see them in the flesh.
The old reliables are still here- YaYa, Steilmann (The famous stretchy trousers are really moving already!), Peruzzi, Darling, Fever & Skunkfunk- and we have a good representation of each of the new collections in already. Some lovely new styles from Salsa are due in the next few weeks as well.
Still waiting for the main drop of the Spring/Summer shoes- Marco Tozzi, sOliver & Heavenly Feet- but stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram OR Pinterest for alerts!
