Best Irish Yarns: Stunning ‘Knitwear as Art’ by international designer Anne McConnell: the Oceanwave Sweater
One of the most influential Irish knitwear designers of her time. Anne McConnell is renowned for her ‘Knitwear as Art’ approach to her craft of making modern Irish knitwear which looks good and makes the wearer feel good too. Behind McConnell’s award-winning creations, all designed and made in Co Clare, is a study of Irish heritage, informed by art, literature, music and nature—and in the new McConnell Collection, the myths and legends of Ireland. The result: intriguing textural statements which appeal both to eye and touch, stunning design and a celebration of Ireland’s knitwear heritage.
McConnell focus on quality, key value of luxury. Here it is interpreted with a contemporary take on clean, minimalist design, premium materials and exquisite craftsmanship. This knitwear is for life, not just one season.
The Oceanwave Sweater is an eyecatcher, creating a contemporary unstructured silhouette as background for a striking textured wave pattern which masters the season’s vibes. In soft lambswool, cashmere and silk, this is a unique, standout sweater. Here in rust, also in fawn, dove, mustard, lime and fuchsia. One size.
