While scrolling through Instagram, you might have noticed the wave of technicolour dresses suddenly flooding your feed by the newest Br-it label, Olivia Rubin. The little-known brand has gone relatively under-the-radar since it first launched but this year sees it stepping into the spotlight with a vibrant SS19 collection.

Inspired by the founder’s love of rainbows, the collection is characterised by the label’s signature bold colour palette which is expertly employed on free-flowing, easy-to-wear silhouettes. A case in point, the rainbow-striped sequin skirt, which is surprisingly versatile for something so striking, has become an Insta-hit.

Loved by Fearne Cotton, Emma Watson, Jessie Bush, Eva Chen, and Aimee Song — all of whom come with their own individual style and aesthetic but nevertheless, look equally great wearing the one brand —, Olivia Rubin is fast becoming a go-to label for those with a penchant for colourful, statement-making designs.

Dress, €515
Skirt, €320

And with wedding season on the horizon, this is one label worth bookmarking if you’re in search of something a little different that no one else will have — just yet.

Launching in Brown Thomas Dublin next week, you’ll soon be able to feast your eyes on the SS19 collection in person from Thursday, 11th April, on Level 2. The collection will also be available to buy online at
