Did you catch the A/W Arnotts magazine? It was given out with The Irish Times last week and also with IMAGE magazine. Obviously, this is a fairly extensive, expensive and well thought out form of advertising – but dang if it isn’t a really good one. I was particularly blown away by this shoot, photographed on location in the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin.

Starring my fave, Naoise Tan (check her out in this incredible shoot by Eilish McCormick, too), it was styled by Niamh O’Rourke and is a great overview of A/W trends – heavy on embellishment, night-time glamour, brocade, knitted pattern courtesy of M by Missoni and gorgeous, sweeping Lana del Rey-esque waves courtesy of hair stylist Joe McGivern.

I love this Dolce & Gabbana-esque look, and check out those gorgeous heels! I suspect they’re Kurt Geiger. Make-up, by Searon McGrattan, was kept minimal, accenting Naoise’s fab thick eyebrows and gorgeous eyes! Click through for more pics – and keep an eye out for Arnotts’ menswear shoot, coming up on Fash Mob!

Produced by Sive O’Brien, photographed by Andreas Pettersson, assisted by Malcolm McGettigan. Styled by Niamh O’Rourke, assisted by Ruth O’Hare and Martha Hughes. Hair by Joe McGivern. Make-up by Searon McGrattan. Modelled By Naoise. Shot on location at The Botanical Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin 9.
