Inspired by the roaring 20’s - and the fabulous flapper dresses - Jonathan Aston have created whimiscal feminine designs using white as their dominant colour for S/S 2012. Entitled ‘Summer Fling’ their collection is very feminine, sexy and playful. It is delicate and pretty but at times it is not afraid to be bright and fun.
Key features include romantic florals, cute fruit designs, tattoo inspired prints, and adorable laces.

With the 20’s and white a key look on the S/S catwalks of New York and Milan you can only but be on trend with these designs. A tricky colour to pull off but will be fab with a vintage flapper! Will be available on late January.

Bingo - Girls Night Out

Our youngest customer at ‘Girls Night Out’ in the Stillorgan Park Hotel last night was, Katie Long - aged just 13 from Dundrum, Dublin.  Katie loved her limited edition Henry Holland Bingo tights so much that she had to try them on there and then.  Remember the name guys as we reckon Katie just might walk the catwalk in future years!

Last night I wore.. a Tux

Well kinda - but with a twist. Black tailored shorts with faux leather edging on the pockets, white silk blouse from Reiss and these amazing Jonathan Aston Tux tights with seam front and back topped off with a tux bow tie! 

'The women’s tuxedo has been blurring the gender divide for years. Some call it an evening gown alternative, while others have tagged it as sophisticated glamour. Thanks to Yves Saint Laurent, who gave birth to le smoking in the 1960s, this androgynous ensemble has now become a womenswear classic and very much a wardrobe staple. But not one that is without the potential for reinterpretation.

The women’s tuxedo trend trumpet last blew out in 2008 when we saw a fountain of celebrities donning the look. Now, with 2012 on the horizon, we’re seeing the trend make a flashing comeback with a whole lot of mischief, seduction and femininity – but this time it’s different. It has evolved.’

I think this would be a fab way to rock your office Christmas Party this year.

We love Janet - X Factor

Ok we love her voice but for selfish reasons we love the fact that so far on every performance and appearance she is rocking tighs!!

Jesse J new legs of House of Holland Pretty Polly


Pop star Jessie J has been announced as the new face and legs of House of Holland Pretty Polly tights. Jessie has already shot the super-hero themed, comic book inspired ad campaign (pictured) for the collection. Get your mits on her Super Suspenders and Superstars for just €15 & €17!

 David Hinchliffe, brand director at Pretty Polly told Grazia magazine: ‘She’s got awesome style, but her attitude as well as her persona make a terrific choice for our collection.’

'The campaign is all about how our tights make a girl feel, it’s about empowering a girl when she’s wearing our products and recognizing the effect she will have on the people around her. Hence the ‘POW!’ and ‘WHAM!’

We catch up with the NEW legs of Pretty Polly!

Back in March we told you all about Pretty Polly’s search for ‘Legs Eleven’ - heck we even ran a competition on giving 10 readers each a pair of tights to use for their competition entry.  All entrants had to do was to post a pic of their legs on Pretty Polly’s Facebook page in the hope of becoming the new Ambassador for Pretty Polly UK & Ireland.

The top eleven girls were invited to the final judging day in London in August and our Ciara was one of them.  On the panel were industry expertsfrom Lenis modeling agency, Pretty Polly, Glamour magazine and celebrity designer Henry Holland.  Aside from having an amazing set of pins, what the judges were also looking for was personality. Someone who really represents what Pretty Polly is about and Ciara has that in spades. “I chatted to them about my love for fashion, writing, journalism, blogging (, the world of media, and how much I would love to work with them”. But yet when she was announced winner she was stunned (if you don’t believe me check out the footage 

 "It was only when my sister Claire ran over to me whooping and hollering that I snapped out of it, and began to realize what was in store for this Galway girl…"

Intrigued, we caught up with Ciara this week to find out a bit more:

Let’s get to to good stuff what did you win! Along with River Island vouchers galore, I’m now signed to the London-based Lein’s Modeling Agency, not to mention having all the Pretty Polly tights a girl could wish for! I’ll be working very closely with Pretty Polly for the next year, doing a mixture of writing, blogging, modeling, and other ambassador duties. Some details Im afraid I can’t divulge just yet, but I can assure you there is excitement and adventure around the corner!

What do you think of the inclusion of designer Henry Holland to the Pretty Polly design team? Having the input of such a renowned designer, you know he’s going to mix things up a little!! I think he’s taking the brand in a more adventurous direction. For example the suspender tights, they were nothing short of iconic, when they came out people went absolutely wild for them, they had the shock factor. They still do!

 What’s your favourite design from the Pretty Polly A/W collection? Hmm that’s a tough one!  I would have to pick the “Pretty Sparkly” tights from the new collection, which I chose to wear for the final, when the light hits them, magnificent!

Any inside secrets on S/S 12 Pretty Polly collection? Oooh they’d kill me if I told you that! But all I will say is stay tuned, they’ve got some amazing creations this year, fans of the brand certainly won’t be disappointed… and then there’s Henry Holland’s new tights collection, I’ve seen some sneak peaks, and it’s amazing, so unique. You’ll just have keep your eyes peeled for their release!

Why do you think tights are undergoing resurgence over the last few years? Well, tights are no longer the last thing you think about when you’re choosing an outfit. Because of brands like Pretty Polly, tights are now a bona-fide fashion accessory, they’ve become the focal point of an outfit. You take a pair like the Henry Holland suspender tights, or the Pretty Sparkly tights (getting them in ladies), and you plan your outfit around them. They’re louder and bolder than ever before, you can now make a fashion statement with the tights you make. And I think people really like that idea, and that’s why there’s such a resurgence in recent years.

Do you think Irish ladies wear tights enough? Do they ever! With the weather we have here in ireland and the UK, tights are a girls best friend! They’re perfect for keeping you warm and dry, without hiding under a million layers. With winter on its way, it’s not really viable to go bare-legged, but luckily with Pretty Polly tights you have great quality and warmth, and you can be fashionable and make a statement with tights.

 Speaking of style who do you draw inspiration from? From everywhere and anything! Fashion Blogs and magazines, my amazingly stylish friends, music I’m listening to, books, movies, even fictional characters!  You can get inspiration from just about anywhere if your eyes are open to it. 

And finally…Saturday night describe your ideal look It could be anything, I’m a bit of a chameleon! But it’s usually some-thing leggy, maybe leather high-waisted shorts, a loose satin shirt, teamed some badass chunky heels or wedges and non-fussy hair. My only “ideal” thing is that I have to be able to dance in it. Gotta show off those killer moves like!
