Só Collective at Kildare Village is a unique shopping experience and thoughtful curation of both established and emerging Irish designers. Immersing guests in a rich world of imagery, texture and colour, the space forms an integral part of From the Isle, the exciting new initiative at Kildare Village designed to nurture and support Irish creative talent.
Whilst skilled craftsmen continue to make waves internationally, a new generation of creatives have become part of a vibrant movement, reinvigorating the island’s fashion and craft scene. Só Collective tells the stories of these innovators.
Elegant, handmade items find their home in the evocative space, imagined by design studio ChanLegge, whilst collections in natural fabrics like wool, tweed and linen connect with Ireland’s rich textile heritage. The stage set for the boutique is based on a vision of luxury experience, where raw edges meet refined moments. Elemental and earthy materials are framed by translucent lace-inspired curtains. Perfection or ‘luxe’ has not been the default aim; ChanLegge have set out to create warmth and tactility with flashes of earthy and sophisticated beauty, to give an authentic sense of Irish luxury.
Só Collective is a place where award winning and internationally recognised designers sit comfortably beside makers who have been honing their skills for decades. A place where talent, inspiration and dedication combine to create a collection that’s truly representative of Irish design today.
