 THE WANDERLUST WAS INSTILLED EARLY ON. SINCE 17 YEARS OF AGE Ruth TRAVELLED FROM HER HOMETOWN OF DUBLIN, TO STUDY B.A. FASHION MARKETING IN THE U.K.

2012, THE TIMING WAS RIGHT TO COME BACK TO HER ROOTS AND BRING HER BLEND OF STYLE HOME.

GONNE WILDE BEGAN WITH A MONTH ON THE ROAD. A ROUTE WAS CHOSEN BASED ON HER SELECTION OF MANUFACTURERS, NO GPS WAS IN THE CAR. THE SOURCING JOURNEY WAS VITAL TO MEET ‘THE BEST OF’ IRISH MANUFACTURERS IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT, ON THEIR TURF.

GONNE WILDE COVERS A WIDE BREATH OF COORDINATED CATEGORIES. STATEMENT COATS/ WOMENS OFF DUTY KNITWEAR AND ACCESSORIES/ LEATHER FOOTWEAR/ GIFTS FOR HIM & HER & CORPORATE FUNCTIONS.

ALL THIS WAS POSSIBLE BY DEALING ONLY WITH THE ‘BEST OF’ IRISH MANUFACTURERS, WHO WERE WILLING TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT WHEN THEY MET OUR INTREPID DESIGNER. THE FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON SILHOUETTE AND UNUSUAL COLOUR COMBINATIONS ARE A SIGNATURE OF GONNE WILDE.

AGELESS, PRICELESS , NO CATEGORIES.

Research /History

The last time William Butler Yeats asked Maud Gonne to marry him was in the summer of 1916.

Timber double doors with large handles depicting swans. Donated by the WB Yeats society of Western Australia. A reminder of Yeats love of mute swans, who can mate for life. Ever the romantics.

RUTH C WAS ALWAYS INSPIRED BY THE ROMANTIC LITERARY SET OF THE 1930‘S IN IRELAND AND GONNE WILDE DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM 1930’S IRELAND. SUCH ROMANTIC HEROES AND HEROINES AS MAUD GONNE, MICHAEL COLLINS, WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS AND OF COURSE OSCAR WILDE. MAC GOWAN IS TAKEN WITH THEIR STYLE AS MUCH AS THEIR LITERARY TALENTS. THESE WITTY SPIRITED PERSONALITIES BREATH LIFE INTO THE OUTRAGEOUS IRISH LOOKS OF GONNE WILDE.

THE THINKING OF THESE TIMES WAS NEVER PREDICTABLE. GONNE WILDE BORROWS THIS THINKING TO CHANGE THE PERCEPTION OF IRELAND ONE JUMPER AT A TIME!

Gonne Wilde Logo inspired by first edition ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’ by William Butler Yates. I added three bands of shades of green to resemble our tricolour flag. Gold foil printing and re coloured interpretations as product line grows.

The buerial place of William Butler Yates overlooked by Benbulben in Drumcliffe, Sligo, Ireland. A tremendously spiritual place to visit.
