Also referencing her Irish roots.

London-based designer Robyn Lynch has returned with a lookbook for her Spring/Summer 2021 collection, presented as part of this season’s London Fashion Week. The collection, which features womenswear for the first time, is heavily influenced by cycling and Lynch’s Irish roots.

The two influences are mixed through Taz Darling’s pictures of 2008’s Tour de Ireland, which act as a backdrop. Additionally, Lynch has reinterpreted cycling sponsors with references to company’s based on Dublin’s Baldoyle Industrial Estate, all of whom have helped her since she first began studying fashion.

These companies include Pearl Deli, owned by Lynch’s family, David Thomas Design, which lent her her first sewing machine, Baldoyle print, which prints all linesheets and lookbooks and the company that built a display stand for Lynch’s BA show in 2016. The logos from these companies are blown up and appear almost as sponsors on cycling jersey hybrids.

These hybrid items include a cotton T-shirt that features towelling panels and sections of cycling jersey, short sleeve shirts with cycling jersey on the back and a patch-pocket shirt with an extra shirting layer on one side. Elsewhere, Lynch has continued to contrast merino wool cable knit with nylon sportswear — referencing the way Irish kids dressed when she was growing up — as well as giving cycling jackets a more roomy cut or more fitted design for women.

In other fashion news, Y/Project and Martine Rose have released exclusive pieces for the launch of htown.
