STABLE Art Series 2: Flight by Louis le Brocquy

We are delighted to re-introduce this rare and beautiful work.

Created in 1954, Flight was designed as part of a series of screen-printed fabric furnishings for Irish businessman John Maguire. Maguire also commissioned well-known Irish artists Pat Scott, Neville Johnson and Thurloe Connolly. Flight is typical of the newly bold and exuberant mid-twentieth-century textile patterns.

We worked with a sample of the original fabric held in the Irish National Museum and reproduced the design onto a gorgeous silk crepe-de-Chine fabric. From this we have made up a very limited number of scarves to wear or frame.

Flight follows on from our first STABLE Art Series project, Pub Wall by Pat Scott, which we reproduced in 2014 as a run of ninety-three scarves to celebrate Scott’s ninety-three years of life and art.

Our thanks go to all who helped to make it happen, especially Anne Madden, the Maguire and le Brocquy families, Alex Ward from the National Museum, and Eric Pearce who with Pat Scott gave us wonderful support and encouragement from the beginning of STABLE.

Lois Le Brocquy
Born in Dublin in 1916, Louis le Brocquy is a towering figure in the history of Irish painting. According to a recent editorial in The Irish Times: ‘This self-taught artist has come to be recognised both at home and internationally as the foremost Irish painter of the 20th century.’1His work has received much international attention and many accolades in a career that spans seventy years of creative practice. He died in 2012.

The STABLE SNUG, new colours for Christmas 2016

STABLE SNUG for warm cosy style

We designed and produced this beautiful cosy fitted neck warmer last Winter, in response to our own desire for a simple, throw in your pocket stylish one piece fitted neck scarf that would work for busy runaround days, work days and weekends. We used soft light wools that were knitted in a way to hold their shape, stay fitted around the neck, from chin to chest and be warm against the chills of the Irish Winter weather. We were really happy with the result!
We spent some time working out what to call our latest offering, wanting to emphasise its uses and the way it makes you feel. After toying around with Sneck and Snood we agreed on the evocative smile inducing, cosy feeling name.. The STABLE Snug.

The STABLE Snug.
It’s a must have for all handbags, car dashboards and coat pockets. Due to its success last winter we will introduce new colours for this Winter. Watch this space for our new colours to be revealed shortly!

Irish Summers are a funny thing. A lot of rain, sun and clouds in every day it seems. This one is no different though it feels a lot warmer. The countryside is lush and green and the growth is exceptional. We have been travelling around the island much of the last two weeks and as always it never ceases to take our breath away. Here, mucking about in a windy field with our Gorgeous STABLE Tricolour Cashmere Modal Scarf. Supersoft, super generous in size at 2.8 metres long it wraps beautifully around the neck. One of our all time heroes.
