Orla Kiely A/W14
Comfortably seated on a park bench, under a street lamp and a projection of a rain splattered cobbled street on the floor, we were ready to start, all finished off with the cutest cup of tea emblazoned with the show invite, its the small things...
The one thing that this collection screamed at me was TEXTURES, from jacquards, to coated cottons, bonded neoprene, tweed, teddy bear wool and curly shearling, the collection was overrun with textures, and we all know how much I love a good textured look.
Silhouettes included sleeveless pussy bow dresses, printed tunics and slim fit trouser suits worn with pony skin handbags and patent leather with THEE CUTEST cat & dog clutch bags!
Once again Orla Kiely has risen to the top of my wishlist, i've got my eye on that adorable teddy bear coat and the chunky knitted neon pink jumper, and of course each and every pair of shoes from her collaboration with Clarks, oh Orla you've done it again!
