Constant travel may broaden the mind, but can limit clothing choices. Eoin Dillon, creative director of the new Irish clothing brand Reuben Avenue (called after an area in Dublin as well as Brooklyn), describes himself as a global nomad – typically visiting a dozen countries in six months – with a lot of experience on what to wear on long or short-haul journeys.
Running campaigns for big international brands in different time zones is a demanding life, so his collection of handsome easywear – shirts, kimonos, robes, trousers – is designed for comfort, simplicity and sophistication while also being sustainable and socially conscious.
It is all made in Ireland using only natural silks and linens or recycled fabrics. The collection can be bought online at www.reubenavenue.comor in Beautiful South, Castlewood Avenue, Rathmines.
