Our founder, Margaret O'Rourke discusses the inspiration behind her new Autumn Winter collection and shares some tips on how to style and gift her favourite pieces.
What's your first port of call when it comes to designing a new collection?
It's mostly colours that inspire my new collections. This season, it's all about emerald green - my favourite gemstone. I do keep an eye on trends but I love this line,
'In a world full of trends, I want to remain a classic'
Where can I buy the new collection?
Our AW22 collection is available online at momuse.ie, our store in Powerscourt Townhouse, Dublin as well as our store in Avoca, Kilmacanogue. Our stockists across the country will have this collection from October.
Can you share some tips on how to style your favourite pieces?
'Nature's First Green is Gold' - Robert Frost
Is there one particular style you include in all of your collections?
We always include hoops in our collections - both gold-filled and 9kt gold. They are timeless, simple and quintessentially MoMuse.
Can you bring us through the making of the petite pearl circle drop earrings?
We work with a number of ethical suppliers who manufacture the components we use in our gold-filled collection. These are then assembled and hand-finished in our lovely new studio space on the top floor of Powerscourt Townhouse. Our pieces are made for longevity but of course require gentle care.
Which pieces would you pack on an Autumnal city break?
Which pieces would you recommend buying for 1. Mothers 2. Bridesmaids 3. Girlfriends?
For your Mother, try our petite pearl pearl earrings; for your bridesmaid, I would recommend the new pearl and paperclip necklace; for girlfriends, try the new leaf pendant.
