Global Shopping: Dublin, Ireland Video

Global Shopping: Dublin

© 2011 Copyright Notice


Hi, everybody. My name is Dayna Spitz, I'm the Global Shopping Editor from MarieClaire.com and welcome to Dublin. Now, I'm sure you're thinking Dublin shopping, that's kind of strange. You probably associate it more with pods, great music, literature. However, I have been doing some research, and there is really interesting fashion that's happening right now. There's some great young emerging designers in Dublin, there's some really edgy shops. Plus, we're gonna head out to Kildare Village Outlet to check out some international brands. So, let's go get shopping. So, I'm about to enter a store called Havana, and it actually has a group called [unknown] line in Dublin. And it's very avant-garde and she carried a lot of different designers. But one in particular, I wanna check out Simone Rocha. She is a Dublin designer. The only place that carries her here and I know like Paris have a lot of her things. So, I'm gonna go check that out.

Hi. And you're the owner of Havana.

I'm Nikki. Yeah.

Okay, that's great.

Yeah. This season is really on texture. It's all about the mixture of fabrics and this is [unknown].

Nice, nice.

And this is two, so we put this beautiful wool jackets, and this is the horse cardigan, it's got leather detail around the back. These are fantastic.

Look at these. Look at this heel. This is so cool.

This is fantastic.


And also, she has it in black. Our customer is very avant-garde.


Sophistication. Customer really wants to buy investment.

Wow. It was such a pleasure meeting you.

Thank you, Dayna. Thank you.

And probably I'll see you around. Bye. I'm at a store called Indigo and Cloth with the owner, Gareth.

With the ladies we kind of [unknown] a lot of Scandinavian designs and we rotate a couple every kind of 2 years or so.

Wow. Let's see this. Oh, it's fabulous. Check this out. I don't know if you can see the detail in this, but it is unbelievable. Okay. I think what I'm gonna do, well, I'm gonna guess this piece. Quality versus quantity people. Okay. So, another purchase. I really love this. So, I'm probably gonna wear it tonight going out to dinner. Okay, onward. Hi, there. So is this your shop?

It is, yes.

Look at this sweet dress. So this is sold separately. I mean, this is like such a versatile piece,


that you can belt it, wear with a blazer over it, put a T-shirt underneath it, like [unknown]. This is part of my wardrobe.


And this classic [unknown].

I love these.

They are really cute.

They are so cute.

Yeah, yeah. Everything is very handpicked, so, letting you pick from a different designer.

So, I'm out of the Kildare Village, which is part of the collection of 9 chic outlet shopping villages throughout Europe, and they have some really amazing international brands here, as well as local designers from Dublin. So we're in an amazing cashmere store right now, called N.Peal, which is based out of the UK, of which you could actually touch this. It is delicious. These are classic pieces that you can wear, you know, get a lot of use out of them for years to come. That's actually the best way to shop when you're in an outlet and look for classic pieces. This is fun. I could wear these and still text. The cashmere socks is actually one of the best Christmas gifts you can give anybody and then this really fun striped long gloves. I'm already ahead of the game for shopping for a holiday gift. I love that. It fits very well here. So on to the next shop. I'm in a store called the Style Gallery which features all designers within Ireland and Dublin. And there's one designer in particular that I totally wanna see her stuff, Joanne Hynes. It's amazing. Oh, this is gorgeous. The feeling is probably Joanne Hynes. And it is. I don't know if you could see this, all the detail work in this coat. It's amazing. 363 Euro, and then I get 10% off. I wasn't planning on buying a coat over here, I will say that. But I might have to get this. It might be the nicest coat I've ever had. Best thing a lot. I have a lot of coats. Time has finally come where I get to go into the Guinness store house to get my fine. Now, I'll have to say shopping in Dublin is really impressive. It's better than I expected. I found some really cool, young edgy shops, great new designers, plus [unknown] their feeling was like unbelievable. So, going off to get my fines. Bye, everybody.
