Primrose Printed Trench Coat
This collection is the first in a series of an amazing range inspired by Irish artist Harry Clarke.
Jennifer says of her inspiration: “My design concept was inspired by the vivid and magnificent colours and artworks of Irish Artist Harry Clarke - Stained glass windows married with Irish Fairy Folklore Mythology. I was drawn to The Eve of St Agnes stained glass panels’ amazing use of vibrant purples, blues, oranges and reds. Inspired by the English poet John Keats, the panels tell the romantic story of two lovers escaping to be together on a cold windy stormy night. ‘Awake! Arise! My love, and fearless be, For o’er the southern moors I have a home for thee ...’ I want to re-ignite the celtic revival (also known as the celtic twilight) of the 19th and 20th centuries in the 21st century. To celebrate Irish artists, folklore, legends and traditions through fashion in a modern and contemporary way. Harry Clarke’s stained glass windows and illustrations provided a wealth of inspiration to create amazing contemporary digital prints. I want to reintroduce a new audience to Clarke’s stunning work and to question the origins of the Irish fairy mythology.”
