Retro Floral Looks in Orla Kiely Spring-Summer Collection

Please welcome retro inspired women's Spring-Summer ready to wear collection made by Irish designer Orla Kiely. The silhouettes are 1960's inspired, consisting of solid and floral-inspired colors. We see dresses and skirts in mismatched colors, awesome daisy prints, easy separates, loose-fit, flowing trousers and jackets, etc. My favorites from the entire collection are egg blue button-front dress, fluoro pink raincoat, two-toned jacquard A-line dresses and daisy jacquard jackets. Speaking of accessories, then we see giant appliquéd flower bags and Hepburn inspired shoes. The background in front of models sport Kiely's creations was painted in flowers which were drawn by Los Angeles-based illustrator Alia Penner. All in all, we see pretty clothing with quirky vibes and commercial look.

Orla Kiely Resort Sweet and Girlish Clothing

Let's see Orla Kiely resort collection, which consists of pretty, sweet and girlish clothing. This year comes with the same pretty and fun looks with classic Kiely's 1960's styles. Designer had a working woman in mind, who needs sharp and special separates in the office time and chic, classy looks for after-work hours wear. The color palette comes in red, navy, black, pink, white and blue. I personally see French simplicity notes in her creations. Speaking of fabrics, there are durable jacquards, merino wools and robust cottons. Love the Breton-stripes and sling-back shoe print, which appear on ensembles, pants, bombers and skirt.

Orla Kiely Fall-Winter Girlish Retro Approach

Irish designer Orla Kiely offers us ready to wear commercial garments for the next Autumn-Winter season. She was inspired by Catherine Deneuve in French musical film Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (1964 film “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg”). Her creations are charming and preppy retro inspired. We see beautiful trenches printed with dogs and cats, wool outerwear with oversize buttons, bright pink wool bobbled sweaters, shiny belted raincoats, tunic dresses with macro geometric florals etc. The real standout of the show was accessories and footwear line. The shoes featured British brand Clarks creations including chunky, platform T-bar sandals with flower-and-stem details and mid-heel Mary Janes. The accessories line features statement umbrellas, puppy and kitten motif purses. I personally like that kind of girlish retro approach.
