Kildare Village lastest store is the Umit Kutluk boutique in Kildare Village which opened on Thursday.

Umit, who moved to Ireland from Istanbul more than a decade ago, has already seen his designs worn by Amy Huberman, Enya, Una Healy, and Kathryn Thomas. 

His collection will house a selection of the designer’s Ready to Wear pieces together with a capsule collection comprising twenty exclusive looks, bespoke to and especially designed for his first Irish standalone boutique.


To celebrate Umit’s first Irish boutique, a special collaboration of 10 one-off head pieces with Irish milliner Aoife Harrison was also unveiled.

These limited collection headpieces have been designed to complement the style and colour palette of Umit’s collection and will be exclusively available in his Kildare Village boutique.

Umit’s newly opened boutique is located next to Le Pain Quotidien and its gracefully designed interiors reflect the brand’s timeless sophistication and tailored elegance. Stylishly designed with marble interiors perfectly complement Umit’s creations. Intricately designed gold trimmings combined with a soft gold velvet carpet add an extra layer of elegance and ambiance to the store.

Umit’s brand is best known for hand-crafted, tailored pieces and beautifully constructed Ready to Wear pieces.
