This week we popped into the STABLE store in Dublin’s Westbury Mall to speak to co-founder of the brand Sonia Reynolds.
Despite Dublin’s changeable weather the light floods in through the three-panelled window at the front of the STABLE store in Dublin’s Westbury Mall. It’s warm inside and the dulcet tones of Billie Holiday drift through the air. Garden hydrangeas rest in a glass jug, a chair by Irish designer Simon O’Driscoll is covered with tweed fabric by McNutt of Donegal and “Irish Pub Wall” by famed Irish artist Patrick Scott is reworked on linen and exhibited as part of the brand’s art series.
Sonia the russet-haired, former fashion model is a good poster girl for the brand. You can see that her look might appear traditionally “Irish” but she is also the epitome of contemporary style in much the same way that STABLE, co-founded by Francie Duff, is a modern Irish brand with it’s roots firmly planted in heritage fabric production.
