Orla Kiely

London based Irish designer Orla Kiely has become popular in the US, and everywhere really. In our recent trip to Asia, I discovered her casual clothing line for UNIQLO, a Japanese clothing chain.  What a pleasant surprise!

This collection showcases Orla's bold, colorful, and classic prints. They're also very affordable. I had to take home a couple of the sleeveless tops.

When I got home, one of the very first things I did, in between dealing with jet-lag and laundry, was to look up other Orla Kiely crossovers. 

Remember Orla Kiely for Target in February 2009? She collaborated with Target and brought to the stores a collection of super cute home products. 

January 2012 (roughly), she collaborated with American Eagle and had her stationery sold at AE stores. Emily at Merrypad wrote a nice post about this. Here are some of the photos from her post. (Thank you, Emily!)

And, happening now is Orla Kiely House for Bed Bath & Beyond.

I'm officially an OK fan.
