Designer Peter O’Brien launches his latest collection with Dunnes Stores today. The collection, aptly named ‘Quiet Drama’, consists of 19 timeless pieces, making this collection O’Brien’s largest spring collection with Dunnes Stores to date. This season, expect nothing less than beautifully tailored ensembles with hints of raspberry and pops of blue mixed in with more classic colours like ivory and oyster.

The colours that make up the collection embody the spring palette but, with a gentle nod to this season’s utility trend, khaki also makes an appearance in the form of a flowing shirt complete with flared dramatic pleat-trimmed sleeves. However, it wouldn’t be a Peter O’Brien collection without a little bit of navy. The designer is renowned for his navy designs and has stayed true to form with some of the pieces in the collection, particularly the stunning pleat wrap skirt, which has caught our attention. For a more relaxed look we would pair it with a white T-shirt and some trainers, alternatively, you could team with the wrap blouse (also part of the collection) for a more refined look.

This new collection is ideal for anyone who has a special occasion marked in their calendar with a selection of matching neutrals that would look great either worn together or as separates such as the three-buttoned ivory coat and the belted coat with matching skinny trousers in oyster.

Prices for the collection start at €60 and range up to €350. The collection launches nationwide on the 21st of March and is available in stores and online.
