Orla Kiely

Irish designer, Orla Kiely, has really made a name for herself over the last few years.  She started out as a hat designer and moved into handbags where her distinctive, laminated fabric bags helped put her on the map.  Her style harkens the likes of Marimekko in its happy, carefree look.  I wish the prices were also happy and carefree but  unfortunately, not so much.  I’m seeing her designs feature more and more in home design these days — from kitchen accessories to bath and bedding.  It will be interesting to see how far she can go.
