Considering how much I love Orla Kiely, I am a little surprised I haven’t done more than the obligatory collection review during Fashion Week (see here and here). I also can’t believe it took an email letting me know about a new store opening on the King’s Road (207 Kings Road, London SW3 5ED) for me to write about my love for everything Orla.
It all started with a print. I can’t quite remember when I saw it, but it was shortly after moving to London. It was so deliciously mid-century and very modern at the same time. In the past few seasons, I have been really impressed by the clothes. To sum it up, I could easily wear the whole collection each season.
I actually popped in the Monmouth street store yesterday just to have a little look and I came out with a Christmas wish list that looked like this:
It isn’t just the clothes, the styling of the lookbook is always spot on and I could literally take stuff of the pages (everything) and put it on. I have also been seriously lusting after the furniture. There is an orange sofa in there that has my name all over it.
