Irish-born Orla Kiely, to most of us, is the woman behind the most iconic prints of all time. But one glance at her collections will make you fall in love with each and every piece. She shows you with ease that a 1960s feel is so much more than A-lines, peacoats, monochrome and geometry, while the clothes are every bit as modern as they are true to the 60s. There is simplicity, cuteness, colour blocks (blocks, waves, swipes!), and there is that cheek my mum had on her photos back in the day. You can easily see what I mean just in the details: the socks, the knits, peterpan collars, checks, stripes and print clashes, pussybows, or big contrast buttons. A 1950s schoolgirl that grows into a woman in the 1960s. Here’s to making her feel at home again in 2011.
