Orla Kiely For Clarks


By IMAGE
20th Feb 2014

Long known as the ‘Queen of Prints’ Orla Kiely has recently teamed up with reliable cobblers Clarks for a capsule collection that is landing in the high street this month. Long famed for her chic interiors, accessories and fashion line, which are available at Arnotts, the shoe collection continues Kiely’s long-standing love affair with 1960s and 1970s print.

First previewed during London Fashion Week back in September 2013 the shoes are a medley of Kiely’s signature greens, mustards and reds and all these block heels all been cutely christened too. All the shoes sound like characters in a Mitford novel – hello Milly, Maggie and Matilda – and after last week’s show at London Fashion Week we’re convinced Orla Kiely’s next venture ought to be a chic picture book about a bunch of mnemonic sisters finding love in late 1960s London.

As regards favourites we’re torn between Matilda and Muriel. They look like the ideal summer sandal and work shoe respectively. What do you think?
