Nicknamed “the Queen of Prints” by the UK Guardian, fashion designer Orla Kiely has placed her signature leaf print on everything from London buses to wallpaper, fabric, and women’s bags. Originally from Ireland, Kiely started out as a hat maker before moving on to handbags. In 1995, she launched her eponymous accessories label and gradually branched out into women’s clothing, stationery, luggage, bedding, wallpaper, and home décor products. Frequent collaborations with Target have seen a rainbow of iphone and ipad cases, yoga mats, laundry bags, plates, tote bags and tablecloths. Kiely's retro design motifs and standout color combinations remain her trademarks, but she also creates pieces that effortlessly capture the spirit of traditional British elegance. An Orla Kiely silk crepe dress, perforated leather wallet in muted colors, or exquisite, printed Merino wool cardigan sweater will add a timeless touch to your wardrobe and leave you feeling a bit like a British royal — appropriate, given that real-life Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton regularly wears Kiely's crisp designs.
Perfect head-to-toe pieces in the subtly femme hue of the moment.
