Orla Kiely

I am a huge fan of Orla Kiely.

You may recognise her popular pear and stem designs.

The Irish born but London based designer received a Master's degree from the Royal College of Art where Harrods purchased her exit collection. She worked with a variety of companies before setting up her own business.

Orla Kiely's collection of bags, homewares, clothing and accessories all sport her distinctive Retro prints.

I have been wanting a large tote with the Multi Stem print for years!  It's one of her earlier prints and is quite hard to come by as there are alot of variations on the Stem print now.

You can find them online on Ebay and Trademe if you are lucky. 

And I got lucky!!!

Love the lining!

It's already had a few outings and is the perfect size for me. There is a load of room inside. Along with the usual items it holds nappies, wipes, bottles, snacks and the always needed change of clothes for George. I love it!
