Description

The “Paddington to Killarney” trenchcoat in Irish linen/hemp union woven by a Masters in Irish linen. Christine O’de Vries own hand drawn watercolour painting design “Cill Áirne”, Irish for “Killarney”. It means   “Church of the Sloes” and in toile du jouy style is woven to give rise to a contemporary timeless and elegant piece.

The name of the piece “Paddington to Killarney” is inspired by a “train” ticket purchased  by Christine’s grandaunt, (a nurse in London during World War II) which she wrote down in a notebook which inspired this collection.

“My ticket from Paddington to Killarney alone cost me £4.1.8” !she noted

Scalloped edges make an appearance too a playful nod to Kerry’s blue flag beaches on the Wild Atlantic Way and which Bridget must have been looking forward to visit when back home. Rossbeigh, Derrynane and Inch are the closest, our favourite haunts!
