A bigger and brighter boutique for Dettling
Fans of Debbie Dettling’s fashion boutique in Ranelagh will be pleased to discover (if they don’t already know) that she has relocated to a bigger and brighter premises in Stillorgan, on the Old Dublin Road. The shop – the interior of which she designed herself “with the help of two carpenters” – is warm and welcoming with a mix of well-chosen quality Italian and French brands, styles selected to appeal to both mothers and daughters. The emphasis is mostly on daywear, with some great sportswear from US brand Monrow, soft cashmere and cotton leisurewear from another US brand called Majestic Filatures, and some fine Ethiopian leathers from Yirga Hellen. A busy mother with years of experience in retail, Dettling knows her market and steers away from too-scary prices. Other distractions in the shop include all sorts of accessories, luxury candles from the new Irish brand Purcell & Woodcock, jewellery by Panache from Korea and some funky greeting cards.
