I've been falling in love with the collection of British designer Orla Kiely since I knew her collection for.. not too long ago -- I was too late to know Kiely's fabulous collection, wasn't I?
The creative world of Orla Kiely was founded in 1995 to express a visual love of pattern, colour, texture and rhythm. Combining a unique sense of colour with original in-house designed prints, Orla Kiely adds a very modern quality to a nostalgic collection of blouses, dresses and playsuits. [asos.com]Orla Kiely's playful and retro designs with a touch of modern style are becoming my favorite.. The designs suit to my taste of a classic charming lady-like style. These looks from Orla Kiely's Fall 2014 collection are something that I will look up to for inspiration on outfits layering and mix-matching wardrobe pieces.. I love the chic looks drawn from the midi skirts, the charming quirky-print tops/sweaters, the beautiful long-sleeves dresses, mixed with tights or above-ankle reached pants.
And the shoes!!.. 'Kiely - Clarks collabs' vintage-inspired shoes: the chunky-heel T-strap shoes -- mixes textured leathers and glossy finish in rich autumnal hues, and the chic mid-heel Mary Janes in glossy leather, -- all with stand out punched hole detailing, buckled strap, and Kiely's signature flower-and-stem details on sole.. really have stolen my heart!
A capsule collection of shoes with big personalities. A little bit 60s, a little bit 70s; part geek chic, part party shoe. All larger than life; all in the sort of delicious colours you'd expect from Orla Kiely. And all beautifully made by Clarks. [clarks.co.uk]
