My art heroes (part 1) - ORLA KIELY

One of my favorite lifestyle designers is definitely Orla Kiely. She began her career studying at Dublin's National College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art where she is currently Visiting Professor for Textiles. Her unique design language and sense of graphic control has seen her label become a hugely successful global brand. 

Orla created her own world which is renowned for its individual voice and unique perspective to both fashion and homeware. For anyone who loves retro design Orla Kiely items are just adorable .

Her amazing work is just perfect dose of colors and patterns we need in Ireland in rainy days :) I am sure her cheerful handbags, stationary or homeware can cheer up everybody's face even when it's raining! 

Citroen DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection is the name of the latest collaboration-project between Citroen and this  world-famous designer. I just love It! Don't they look amazing?


Citroen DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection is limited to 500 units and features the designer’s iconic style inside and out. Available in four body colors and four different roof designs – featuring Orla’s signature stem or acorn patterns, the special edition vehicles come with colored door mirrors; stem print rear window graphics, and black or white 17” alloy wheels.

I don't mind driving any car but I can clearly imagine myself sitting in this one!!! :)
