Orla Kiely’s work is characterized by bright colours and graphic patterns in a world that is too often muted and neutral. References to the sixties and seventies are unavoidable and Orla makes no qualms about her taste for the graphic elements of the period. In the past ten years, the brand has expanded beyond clothing, bags, and hats into home and travel accessories.
Her flagship store is in Covent Garden and here the objects on display flow into the architecture displaying them (designed by Gerard Taylor). Stop in and feel your mood change as you are taken over by the play of colours and patterns.
