Now in its fifth year, more than 50 faces will be featured, including Cork-based handbag designer Dee Mangan of The Kinsale Leather Co, Munster milliner Margaret O’Connor, designer Jill de Burca, above, along with a host of other names to watch.

CREATE begins July 5 in the flagship Dublin store, with pop up installations in Cork, Limerick and Galway.


Olori, one of the latest and exciting additions to Cork’s thriving boutique scene, will stock the cult bottle S’well from July.

Swell’s creator, Sarah Kauss, dubbed it ‘fashionable and functional’ when she created it in 2010.

It keeps liquid cold for 24 hours and warm for 13 - that’s the functional covered. And the fashionable? The stainless steel vessel hit sales of over $50m when it featured on Oprah’s ‘O List’.

And it’s been seen in the hands of A-listers across Hollywood ever since. That might explain the €52 price tag.

Olori will be the only Munster stockists of the cult bottle.


To mark the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birth, Penguin has created a 21st makeover with a difference.

They commissioned designers from Orla Kiely to Henry Holland to design new covers for classics including Peter Rabbit and Tom Kitten. Launching July 7, it’s a collection for every book case.
