The brand’s name SWONNE is derived from the London post code “SW1” or “SW-ONE” where Founder and Designer Katie Golinczak grew up.
Established in 2018, Swonne’s first collection debuted as part of the CFDA's Men's fashion week for Spring and Summer 2019 in New York City. Influenced by merging the opposing sensibilities of the Mods and the Rockers of 1960’s London, Savile Row tailoring and the customization of clothing by British youth cultures. This inspiration continues to run through the collections like a Royal “blue blood” line.
