Animal Print in The Irish Times

Mono Jungle SnoodMany thank to Deirdre McQuillan for the mention in The Irish Times this week.

‘Knit designer Heather Finn, who has just become the proud mother of a baby girl called Ruby Rose, has drawn on her grandmother’s wardrobe for her latest collection called “Jungle Glitter”.  Her usual skill with colour has been mixed with Lurex and other metallic threads for a sparkling collection inspired by 1940s leopard, zebra and giraffe prints associated with her flamboyant grandmother, in soft cashmere and lambswool. The mix of capes, wraps, scarves and ponchos also includes other predator references, such as this tiger fringe snood in cashmere and lambswool (€95) which can be found in Jennifer Rothwell’s boutique in Powerscourt or direct from Finn’s website, heatherfinn.com’.
