Costelloe designs menswear for Dunnes

Acclaimed Irish designer Paul Costelloe has launched a brand new collaboration collection with Dunnes Stores.

The menswear collection, which is titled Paul Costelloe Living, is described as a casual collection with an international feel. “I am known for my casual style” Costelloe commented. “This is why I really wanted to create a new collection to reflect that style in collaboration with the Dunnes Stores team. Paul Costelloe Living will give Irish men stylish pieces which are superior quality at great prices”.

The range comprises of a broad variety of materials in comfortable fabrics, cotton, jersey and wool, as well as hints of leather, twill and cotton. The collection focuses on the man’s basics, a good white shirt, a casual rugby or polo shirt, a sturdy pair of jeans and one good jacket or coat. The international flair is also helped by the choice of merino wool, cashmere and Italian yarns.

“The details in the pieces add a point of difference and make the garments individual and personal to the wearer” Costelloe said. The detail is evident throughout the modestly-priced collection, with leather trim on coats, intricate stitching and finishing on shirts, as well as subtle colour contrasts as finishing touches.

Double-breasted wool coat, €150

Brogues €100

Whether men are looking for outerwear, loungewear or some good basics in knitwear and shirting, the collection is expected to have broad appeal and is available from a wide selection of stores nationwide, a map of which is located on the Dunnes Stores website.
