This post is about my newly found source of inspiration. I recently discovered this designer and her wonderful work during London Fashion week. The Irish Designer being Orla Kiely. I was captivated by the images of her innovative S/S 14 presentation. I loved the creativity behind it, and detail, plus the models wore berets (yes!). I can only imagine how enjoyable the experience of watching this presentation/show live was.
So, I have been following Orla Kiely on Instagram, and it has fast become my favourite account to follow. I particularly loved that Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tennebaums was mentioned as a muse, as well as Mia Farrow and Patti Boyd. The throw back style translates perfectly in Orla Kiely's designs and patterns. Zooey Deschanel is a big fan, known for her quirky and playful style, they are the perfect match.
I adore the 60's inspired A/W collection. The olives, plums, and signature prints will certainly inspire my wardrobe this season. The Climbing Daisy Velet Holly Bag is just utterly beautiful!
I have chosen some of my favourite images (above), that include past and present collections, film stills, behind the scenes, and features from magazines. I do fall for the vintage/retro look so easily, it is oh-so-feminine! Follow Orla Kiely on Instagram here, and on Pinterest here for more inspiration, and beauty.
