Smidirini

The Galway Races are Decadent and Depraved

 

Smidirini

Gavin Brunker collects and sells vintage French workwear under the name Smidirini. As far as I know he is the only person doing this in Ireland.

The first I saw him he was dressed in rags. Scarf from the 1900s, French workjacket (1920s) so tattered that his entire elbow hung out of it, beaming smile.

Gav and the people he sells to find deep meaning in clothes with a past. Every patch, every stain and every tear speaks to the uniqueness of a piece and a rich history going back decades.
