Irish designer Orla Kiely has a real eye for pattern. When the queen of kitsch began designing in the 1990s her colourful graphic prints became an instant hit.
It was Orla's extension into accessories that really cemented her place in fashion and textiles history. Her laminated fabrics were practical and beautiful, and offered women a touch of vintage chic at a time when black dominated the market.
Orla has utilised her eye for detail in order to create an extensive body and handcare range. The quirky collection contains Orla's favourite aromas, including Bergamot and Geranium
