Paul Galvin and Dunnes collaborate for fifth time

Kerry superstar Gaelic footballer Paul Galvin is showing he can cut it in fashion as much as on the pitch with his latest collection for Dunnes Stores.

He’ s right on target, for instance with this Aran knit, above, (a garment so much in news at the moment), in 100 per cent merino and made in Monasterevin, Co Kildare, and a snitch at €35.

The collection, his fifth for the store, is called Shelby and takes its cue from the popular Netflix series Peaky Blinders set in 1920s Birmingham. The key accessory being a baker boy hat (seen everywhere recently in London) along with grey tweed effect three-piece suits, burgundy braces, pocket watch and overcoat.

The collection also includes lumber, bomber and donkey jackets and a gold-buttoned military-style overcoat.

A fourth-generation Dublin barber Sam Donnelly features in the Shelby campaign shoot. Find the collection in select Dunnes Stores and online at www.dunnesstores.com/cdn/paul-galvin/

PUT THE BOOT IN

Black trousers? Add a bit of dash with colour and embroidery when it comes to ankle boots this winter or flash them under jeans for a brighter alternative to the standard black stalwarts.
