Paint-splattered frocks, Modernist art through a fashionable lens and a Dario Argento masterpiece – here’s our pick of the pack in fashion this October.

Natalie B Coleman

With textiles that seamlessly fuse Irish tradition and internationally-resonant innovation, everyone wants a slice of Coleman’s style ethos. Inject some scarlet tones – and female solidarity – into your wardrobe with this SISTERS wool top, replete with French knot embroidery. €250, / @nataliebcoleman

Suspiria at the Lighthouse Cinema

While Luca Guadagnino’s remake may have somewhat polarised its earliest spectators, the original Suspiria – Dario Argento’s 1977 opus – is a cult classic amongst horror-film aficionados and fashion designers alike.

Grab a ticket for the 25th October screening and bask in the same staggeringly-vibrant scenes that have influenced Rodarte and Louis Vuitton. 8:30pm. @lighthousecinema


Elegantly holding court as one of the Creative Quarter’s most treasured establishments, this independent boutique curates an eclectic display of luxury labels; valuing fashionable investments over ephemeral fads. Print hunters will fawn over the Saloni frocks, whilst even the most monochromatic of dressers will succumb to Helen Steele’s wearable-art wares.   @costumedublin


Imagining France – Roderick O’Conor and the Moderns

The National Gallery of Ireland’s headlining exhibition – running until 28th October, with colour schemes that double as clothing inspiration – has been taken on by two stylish commentators: Tropical Popical founder Andrea Horan and fashion-writer wunderkind Paul McLauchlan. Joining forces for a conversational, fashion-flavoured podcast, the multi-hued paintings of O’Conor and his Modernist contemporaries are traced, with plenty of memorable quotes along the way. Horan’s reference to fashion watchdogs Diet Prada is a personal favourite.



Brown Thomas Style Summit – Sarah Harris

A Deputy Editor within the most diverse team ever to be assembled at British Vogue, Sarah Harris is surrounded by esteemed colleagues; from her boundary-breaking Editor in Chief, Edward Enninful, to Contributing Editor and tireless trailblazer Sinead Burke. Harris will sit down in Dublin as part of BT’s Style Summit, dissecting her personal approach to clothes whilst giving insights into one of Conde Nast’s most forward-thinking magazines. 10th October
