Swinging our way back to the sixties, with Orla Kiely 🌻

We are both proud and privileged to feature Orla Kiely in a number of our stores. Although a lot of our everyday style is inspired by our flower power loving friends of the sixties they have however been updated to a more modern contemporary style. What we love about Orla Kiely is her style keeps a classic and nostalgic element of 60's design which takes us straight back to bellbottoms and Beatlemania. Orla Kiely described by the guardian as 'Queen of Prints'  is internationally renowned for her retro prints and her love for expressive pattern.
