HONOR FITZSIMONS award-winning collections are a fusion of innovation and easy luxury.
Inspirations are drawn from music, art, industrial forms, design of the ancient world, and traditional textile techniques. HONOR FITZSIMONS is marked by the desire to constantly innovate and born from a love of wearing edgy yet cosy clothing that you can simply 'throw on and go'. The interplay of these elements has culminated in a distinctive fashion knitwear brand marked by inventive construction, conceptual use of colour and modern luxury.
Collections are ethically produced in Ireland using yarns sourced in the EU.
