Remember Stighlorgan? The London-based accessories brand that takes inspiration from Ireland’s landscape and cultural heritage to create bags, belts and scarves that are utilitarian, hard-wearing and chock-full of singular design details?
They’re back for Autumn Winter 2012 with ‘The Rain Never Stops’ (never a more collection title for an Irish brand…), a collection intended as equipment for embracing the rain, featuring a slew of coated fabrics including two newly developed by the brand, the 18oz Fisherman’s lacquer canvas and 16oz paraffin wax canvas.
^ From top: Sé, a dual function suede leather tool bag, and a new addition to the Stighlorgan family; can be worn as a holdall or rucksack; Reilly, roll-top rucksack, crafted from the 18oz Fisherman’s lacquer canvas
^ The Driscoll drawstring returns; Oisín (bottom, left) mustard zip-top rucksack, made from another custom fabric – 16oz paraffin wax canvas; Roban (bottom, right) remains a staple
^ Boann canvas webbing belt; cable knit Cian scarves
As intrepid explorer Rannulph Fiennes so brilliantly put it: ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing’.
