Leith Clark (of Lula Mag) & James Hatt put together an amazing set for the Orla Kiely Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation at London Fashion Week. I knew I would be happy, as I am always in awe every season. Orla Kiely's collection blew my mind once again when I went through the pictures on Kris Atomic and Betty Magazine.
The inspiration stems from Margot Tennebaum, 70s flocked wallpaper, and Irish artist Breon O'Casey. The prettiness had a hint of humour that tied everything together so whimsically. Models were working hard at the typewriters or walking up and down the office cubicle isle as the runway. They were also all styled with messy Bardot inspired beehive, covetable frames, and shoes from Kurt Geiger.
The pointed Peter Pan collars and the pleated collars accompanied by the beautiful prints are Orla Kiely's signature look and the ones that I always covet the most. The adorable squirrel theme, textured flowers, velvet jacquards and shearling are all great adds to the season.
