We surge out to the cliffside from the shadows of a tunnel. Our pulses suddenly outpace the rhythm of our train as we hurtle through space, sweeping across the open bay along the edge of a cliff. Our senses are drenched in the vast expanse before us as the train glides down the cliffside crescent of Killiney Bay. Our faces are pressed against the glass for fear of missing any of this endless symphony, arranged from a chorus of sand, sea, and sky.

Dublin from the Hills - Dark Blue and Green Handmade Silk Self-tie Bow Tie

€150

by Brendan Joseph

Fashion & Accessories, Ties & Bow Ties

Dublin’s shimmering lights yield to ancient foothills, nestling the city from the south, resplendent in greens and greys. As we walk here at sunrise and sunset, amongst swathes of pine and gorse, along smooth flowing streams and crunchy paths of shimmering granite, all peppered with minerals, lichen, flowers and buds. Dublin wakes and sleeps beneath us, streams of cars and flickering streetlamps illuminate the road below all fading far in the distance into a slate blue sky.

Howth Head - Light Blue and Green Patterned Handmade Silk Self-tie Bow Tie

€150

by Brendan Joseph

Fashion & Accessories, Ties & Bow Ties

The headland of Howth is the northern end of Dublin Bay, a sweeping crescent of horizonless blue, mirrored on the south by Killiney Hill, with Bray Head beyond. An all-engulfing swathe of scrub speckled with flowers of red and golden yellow heathers lies under a grey-blue sky, echoed in exposed karst, craggy shards of quartzite and mudstone, peppered with minerals in chartreuse and umber, punctuated by olive green gorse invading every crack.

Flowers in the Dark - Dark Purple Handmade Silk Self-tie Bow Tie

€150

by Brendan Joseph

Fashion & Accessories, Ties & Bow Ties

Buying flowers on Grafton Street, picking out the individual stems, noticing the grey of the stem, the deep magenta petals and the sliver of chartreuse between them, I created my ‘Flowers in the City’ collection, and then walked about town with my flowers, looking at them in the light and in the dark. I wanted to celebrate the uniqueness of each combination of magenta and sky blue as the petal and stem of the flower changes in every light, growing and moving, opening and blooming, and fading away.
