Isle of Green
It is easy to fall in love with Ireland. I’d go back in a heartbeat. One quickly relaxes amidst its casual charm, all of that green, the music, the well-behaved little Irish dogs. St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone, and Jane’s Vanity is still floating on an isle of green. Come join our emerald mood.
Green seems the thing this year. In shades both surprising and refreshing, it is a promise of good things to come. A natural boost for our lingerie morale. Studio Pia makes the point with its new Jungle Green. See its sexy yellow-green in the plain and simple Petra Jungle Silk Bralette Set, as trim for the baroque Sofia Balconette Set, as a silken base for the floral magic of the Cerelia Embroidered Lingerie Set. For all three, the appropriate wrap is the Petra Jungle Silk Robe, in a classic short style that would make an excellent spring evening jacket (to wear along the balmy shores of Kinsale, County Cork).
Klements is a special friend of green prints, especially via the Jimi Hendrix Collection that includes versatile short Silk Kimonos in Poison Poppy or Psychriver, chiffon Silk Kaftans in Poison Poppy or Watchtower (notice the London green parakeets), or fabulous Giant Square Scarves in all three prints (to protect us as we stroll to “the local”).
Gilda & Pearl choose a luscious chartreuse silk for their Golden Hour collection. Each lovely piece is trimmed in shimmering gold lace appliqué. We wear the Top, Camisole Set, Slip, or Robe to avoid getting pinched on March 17, and to invite it on every other day.
Let’s dive into a sea of green with Gilda & Pearl’s Ophelia Emerald Silk Collection. This beautiful deep color is accented by black and gold French lace for the flirty Camisole Set (with tap pants) and matching thigh-length robe. Just the thing for phoofing around your hotel room at the elegant Davenport Hotel Dublin or the romantic and historic Hotel Isaacs in Cork.
For a return to Ireland (soon, we hope), our needs are simple. We choose to travel light (and light green) in Vannina Vesperini’s Khaki Silk combo of Camisole, Jane Trousers, and Skirt. Perfect with a fisherwoman’s sweater, a small dog, and the Klements Giant Square Scarf in Psychriver.
Jane’s Vanity wishes you a wonderful trip. As they say in Ireland: On your bike, now, off with you. Byebyebyebyebye…
