Áine Knitwear Ireland
McConnell is an Irish knitwear brand located on Lough Derg in the picturesque village of Killaloe, on the west coast of Ireland. With a strong focus on heritage and craftsmanship, the collection draws inspiration from time honoured work-wear pieces.
The geansaí for example, is key – and traditional Aran and fisherman rib sweaters are reworked for a contemporary wardrobe.
A strong colour palette is a feature of all collections, echoing the landscape of the wild, rugged, Irish coast. Both menswear and womenswear share a relaxed and carefree spirit with modern proportions and contemporary detailing.
The work-wear sweater epitomises the brand’s philosophy of updating iconic classics with modern elements and timeless design. Natural yarns and hand finished techniques complete the DNA of the brand.
