As 2016 comes to an end and we look forward to welcoming in the New Year, we’ve been doing a J.Lo and looking back on the past 12 months.
This year has been a very exciting one for the Iris brand. We’ve introduced new products, worked with some great boutique brands and collaborated with ambitious bloggers the world over.
We have also been publishing regular twice-weekly blog posts to stay in touch with our followers and offer a behind the scenes glimpse of all that goes on at Iris HQ.
Our love for playful, versatile fashion has reigned strong in our new products. Keep an eye out for our handmade wrap bracelets in the SS’17 collection. Those lucky people who attended our pop-ups have already adorned their wrists with the cord bracelets, which offer traditional costume jewellery style with a Greek gladiator aesthetic. We also launched our leather backpack range earlier this year which has proved very popular.
When it comes to collaborators, we were thrilled to see Lavinia at @drumsoffashion blog modelling our knotted bracelets. Bloggers Chrisabella, Anna Mavridis and Belle & Bunty have also modelled our sandals.
We saw Cristina Ghivnici modelling our winter jewellery collection and Stephanie Peers of The Style Memo rocking our collections around the Greek islands, while blogger Courtney fell in love with our St. Tropez sandals.
The Iris team have also been out and about around the world. We travelled to the island of Crete where our sandals are made to shoot our new lookbook pictures. Back on our regular stomping ground and at our London-based pop-ups, we’ve worked alongside Stefani of BeSnazzy offering unique clothing and accessories made by talented artisans.
We had our own stall and mingled with buyers, customers and fashionistas at London Fashion Weekend and Scoop and the City. We’ve also showcased at pop-ups beside brands including Rosalena Oils, Fancy Kids and Claire Naa Concept Store.
At our sample sale, we offered bargains to some very lucky shoppers who browsed also pieces from brands including Hesper Fox and Lisa Taylor.
All in all, it has been a super-stylish and exciting year! We’d like to say a big thank you to every single one of you for your support and love.

Happy New Year!
