Orla Kiely

A special part of my heart has long been dedicated to the lovely Orla Kiely. When I first discovered her unique and retro designs a couple of years ago, I couldn’t help but fall madly in love. Her use of vintage designs and interesting prints had caught my eye. Though her collections are a bit out of my price range at the moment, I can’t keep my eyes from twinkling as I see photos of her new collections.

While on my visit to New York, I couldn’t resist stopping by in one of her stores. It was exactly as I imagined it to be, as if one stepped into another world filled mid-century stylings and Orla’s signature stem print. If I could, I don’t think I ever would have left the store.

With some touches from the 60’s, her fashion shows create a sense of realness. To go along with her shows, she has created beautiful short films to present her clothes in a way that encase the true feelings and thoughts behind the design. As you watch each film, it’s hard not to want to adorn every outfit and own each piece.
