It’s not just Limerick fans opting for green in the new fashion season!
With most of Limerick donning our county colours in one form or another this week, I took a look at some of the international collections for the new season to see who else is flying the green flag for Autumn/Winter 2018-2019.
As can be seen from the cross section of imagery here, our beloved green is popping up everywhere! Bags, coats, scarves, shoes, boots, trousers, suits, short suits, dresses, jewellery and more, in tones from deep forest greens to more muted olive and moss, emerald shades to jade and mint, they were all there.
There was a lot of blacks worn with deep greens giving it a richer feel for the colder season which traditonally always delivers on gorgeous textures and layering. We should have no shortage of greens in our favourite stores and boutiques as a result, with the international catwalks usually providing inspiration for what ends up on the racks and shelves. No excuses then not to keep green in our wardrobes for the next while, as well as in our hearts.
