Hemlines: Flying The Flag – Alison Conneely


Posted 4 months ago in Fashion

Slipping between a studio on St. Stephen’s Green and the flora- and fauna-filled surrounds of her native Connemara, Alison Conneely’s sartorial voice is part-mythical, part-modernist.

She effortlessly pushes the pre-conceived boundaries of Irish fashion with each passing year; her most recent multi-disciplinary projects including “The Shuttle Hive: A Century of Rising Threads” and “Tremble Tremble”, which showcased at last year’s Venice Biennale.

Quietly-assured, flawlessly-sewn design flows from Conneely’s polished collections. It’s little wonder, then, that luxury behemoth Bloomingdale’s snapped up her latest capsule collection, “Makers Myth”, to launch this month – a move that will see Conneely’s fervent domestic fanbase joined by a myriad of Manhattan dwellers.

Drawing from the empowered serenity of Bardic characters, her gently-cascading silks and woven wools give the ultimate antidote to midwinter blues. @alisonconneely x @bloomingdales
