Tidings of comfort

In Niamh Gillespie’s current Tidings menswear campaign, directed by Ciara Mack of Phello, she shows how to make the most of her dramatic printed scarves on men – whether tied like a cravat, knotted around the wrist, draped languidly across the body or simply hanging around the neck in a bold contrast colour. The graphic designer’s scarves sell in Fortnum & Mason in London, in Seagreen in Monkstown, Sybil Boutique in Dundalk and Adare Manor and online at, She will be spreading her wings next season, showing in Paris at Première Vision. This graphic floral-striped silk twill statement scarf, 90cm x 90cm, called Outrageous, from the collection, is modelled by Dublin-based Brazilian influencer Lucas (pobrenairlanda on Instagram) is €249.
