15 Oct Urban Aran
Urban Aran is an independent Irish knitwear brand offering bold, colourful but considered knitwear for modern lifestyles founded by Christine Murphy in 2017. Her collections are influenced by urban art in all its forms.
Her inspiration is drawn from urban art in her home city of Waterford in the South East of Ireland and from ‘tags’ in public spaces to derelict walls magnificently embellished by accomplished street artists. Designed to be cherished, each piece proposes an engaging balance of opposing elements—past and future, masculine and feminine, strength and softness, structure and fluidity.
Through intuition and passion Christine conceptualised her brand as a luxury ready-to-wear knitwear, designed to last a lifetime. A creative use of heritage Aran yarns and stitchwork combined with contemporary urban art designs make eclectic sophisticated essentials for modern life.
