Every year around St. Patrick’s Day, it is easy to find yourself struggling to find something green to wear, particularly if you want to look classy for the day’s festivities. Four Irish designers help us in our quest to get our green on: Items can be ordered by clicking the links.
1. Award winning knitwear designer, Áine Knitwear, from Co.Clare has a selection of her lambswool designs in lime green. Gorgeous.
2. Dublin artist John Kirwan individually handpaints the scenes of the West, centred on Connemara’s stone walls, onto bowties. Dapper.
3. Milliner Davina Lynch handknits chunky Aran Hats with hand-dyed feathers – she calls them Lynchmobs. The forest green Lynchmob is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day – and for rugby matches too. Cosy.
4. Dublin-based textile artist, Brendan Joseph Scarves, distills beautiful places into woven scarves and bowties. This one is inspired by the Wicklow Mountains. Luxurious.
Damn that lipstick is good.
You can see his lips?
Look at those cheekbones!
I’ll admit it, I will…. I like that bow-tie :)
John Kirwan ROCKS!!!
Isn’t it only Americans who wear green on St Patrick’s Day? In Ireland we stand under umbrellas watching children with makeup running down their faces tumbling and somersaulting along O’Connell Street in every town.
