As the leaves change colour and nature is abound with rich shades of yellows, oranges, reds, and browns, I think of knitwear and layering, hot chocolate and cosy evenings by the fire, harvesting crops, hearty comfort food and the smell of freshly baked goods. For me, it’s a slow wind down and ease into the winter months, a time for renewal and reflection as we witness the physical changes in nature around us.
This issue encapsulates some of my favourite autumnal themes. We focus on knitwear, outerwear and layering from some of Ireland’s top design talent. Our beauty pages will inspire you to add another layer of care to your skincare routine to prep and protect as we head into harsher winter months. Grab a coffee and check out some of latest foodie recommendations this month or dream of some winter sun with our travel feature on Tenerife and La Palma. Finally, for the autumnal bride, we have a special weddings supplement to inspire and delight.
