It was a pleasure to MC the new store launch of Fabiani Boutique, on Main Street, Longford, last Friday.
Owner, Louise Brennan, has created one of the coolest retail spaces I have seen in some time; her minimal, industrial look a perfect foil for her luxe products.
The jewellery bar is a new addition to the store, with staple bestseller brand Bibi, as well as Anna Nina perfect for dainty gifts and the showstopper Zacasha label, a bohemian-style long pendant with real silk tassel finish, all the way from the artisan villagers of Bali, Indonesia.
Bags are also well-represented with the Fox and Bell label stocked; quite the result considering its debut collection has sold out online. With fans such as Ashley James and features in both Now magazine and Good Housekeeping, it’s not hard to see why. Staple ‘Modalu‘ is also featured, see image above, made famous by Pippa Middleton‘s brand association. New label Lodi is also stocked heavily, with clutch bags to beautifully compliment their shoe range, also in store. Lucky prize winners found Lodi treats in their goody bags…
My personal pick was the achingly hip Rails shirts, owned by Revolve clothing and brought all the way from LA. Loved by style maven Lauren Conrad, these plaid designs are super soft and exceptional quality.
And then to the shoes….stockists of Ash, Paul Green and Marian Spain for the fashionistas, Fabiani also caters for comfort as well as style with Marco Moreo and Cressy. Bibi Lou, a Spanish label, also has some funky options for everyday wear and the tracked sole of Pepe Castell gives substance and grip in the most stylish way. See all these beauties right here
Thanks to Louise for the loan of my super comfy Ash boots, Rails shirt (I could hardly bear to take it off!) and Zacasha pendants, all pictured above. Fabiani boutique, having doubled in size, can now be found at 19/20 Main Street, Longford as well as online at www.fabiani.ie Happy Shopping!
