Paul Costelloe is a household name in Ireland. The designer is famous for his homeware range at nationwide chain store Dunnes Stores, his uniforms for British Airways, Aer Lingus and Delta, and his fun designs. The designer was formerly on London Fashion Week’s schedule every season but was absent for the past couple of years. This year he returned, and what a show he put on.
Simpson’s-in-the-Strand was the venue for the comeback show. It was a 60’s-inspired collection - see beehive hair ‘dos and and high hemlines. There was an array of colours featured. Cornflour blue, pale mint green, navy and orange were all apart of Costelloe’s bright colour palette.
This collection, in my opinion, would perfectly suit Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. These prim and proper outfits, have an ounce of sexy sweetness in thin without being too inappropriate for a royal. The collection, in fact, would look great on many people.
A stellar return from Mr. Costelloe.
