Back around 2018, Robyn Lynch was working in the Pearl Deli, her father’s sandwich shop in the Baldoyle Industrial Estate, when she received the news that she secured a coveted place at London Fashion Week Men’s.
Skip forward to now and she’s presenting her Spring/Summer ’21 collection whilst mining her heritage. Inspired by the photographs which Taz Darling took to commemorate the Tour de Ireland in 2008, Lynch took the logos of businesses in the estate who supported her including the aforementioned deli, David Thomas Design which lent her her first sewing machine, Franey Hardwood Products who built a display stand for her BA in 2016 and Baldoyle Print who still look after her lookbooks.
Playing with scale, as models pose against blown-up backdrops of photographs from the tour, Lynch brings a homely charm to her vivid collection.
Robyn Lynch is now available at BT Menswear
