Get ready to channel your inner rock goddess as this season is all about attitude for Parisian favorite Maje. Maje has based its collection around four different takes on rock music-Grunge Rock, U.S Rock, Glam Rock and Pure Rock.
Grunge Rock takes inspiration from the classic grunge icon Kurt Cobain. Cobain mastered the art of throwing seemingly haphazard elements together rebelling from all things conventional. Think lace dresses covered with flannel shirts, ripped distressed denims, oversized cardigans, and skinny scarves all anchored with a chunky military style boot. Theme Maje’s tartan shirt alongside their must have leather leggings and a classic black heel to add a touch of elegance to this grunge look.
U.S. Rock takes inspiration from the legendary rock singer Bonnie Tyler alongside the much loved movie classic Thelma & Louise. From motorcycles to pool halls to neon lights think relaxed thrown together outfits. Keeping the 90’s in mind, boyfriend fit jeans, an eagle print t-shirt and a loose fitting leather jacket will allow you to nail the look.
Pure Rock takes inspirations from none other then style icon and super model Kate Moss. Kate Moss is the queen of effortless style, which is very much the key focus here. Think animal print, leather leggings, biker boots, tattoos, essentially all things rebellious.
Glam Rock provides a much more polished take on the rock look, with David Bowie and Blondie providing inspiration here. Think Lurex, Glitter, Heels and figure hugging dresses. This black lace Maje dress sums up the look perfectly.
This summer, it’s all about making a statement with your bright jewellery and BT2 Grafton Street is delighted to welcome super cool jewellery brand Tatty Devine to Dublin.
A celebrity favourite, the London based brand combines fashion and art to create original and unique jewellery, and has been seen on Rita Ora, Jessie J and girl group, Stooshe.
The brand’s motto, life and jewellery should be fun; means the funky and colourful collection includes vintage style earrings, retro inspired glossy Perspex rings and laser cut necklaces.
Each piece makes a standout statement, like the dinosaur necklace, where each bone is laser cut from black Perspex and threaded together by hand.
A great piece is the playful double cartoon eye ring and for ultimate impact we think we will match our nail art to the pop jewellery!
We love the Parakeet necklace, which is available in gold and emerald and has been spotted on Irish beauty Laura Whitmore. The bird necklace is handmade from mirrored Perspex and makes a simple white dress look glamorous.

This week we were delighted to have Henry Holland visit BT2 Grafton Street to exclusively launch his House of Holland Collection.
It was so exciting to meet such a talented designer, who was just as lovely as we imagined him to be. Brand new and exclusive to BT2 this season there are two collections in store: Pre-Spring - which is all about Americana, cheerleaders and pom-poms and Spring Summer - which is Henry's take on nineties grunge.
Buzz Kill is a slightly happier, hyper-feminine interpretation of nineties grunge. Henry had a very busy day meeting with fashion press and doing TV interviews and later that evening he hosted a 90's party in the store with cult-band Smash Hits providing the soundtrack!
This Christmas, BT2 has a super choice of fun and imaginative gifts to wow loved ones!
For the budding photographer, Lomography cameras are the perfect choice. These retro cameras bring the fun back into capturing memorable moments and allow the user experiment with different effects. View things from a fishy perspective with the Lomography Fisheye Camera. Grasping 170 degrees of field of vision, subjects will take on a distinctly exaggerated angle resulting in some amusing snaps. The world is a goldfish bowl! Bringing analogue back to the movies, the LomoKino is a Lomography movie camera that shoots short, creative movies.
Tongue in cheek stationary is a fun addition to any stocking. Humorous sticky notes with catchy slogans are guaranteed to make someone smile!
