This season, Arnotts has added three exciting contemporary Irish designers to its ladieswear floor, in the form of designs by Helen Steele (above), Jennifer Rothwell and Roisin Linanne.

The new names will join other Irish names such as Heidi Higgins and of course Lennon/Courtney in Arnotts’ ladieswear stable. There will be between 10 and 15 designs in each collection, with prices starting at €80. The striped dress, above, is €594.

The three new additions offer a huge variety in terms of design aesthetic, too; while Helen Steele’s designs are bold, bright and colourful, inspired by the Far East, Linnane’s pieces are all clean-cut shapes and cashmeres. Rothwell’s selling point is her fantastic Irish-designed prints and fitted dresses.
