This season Orla took us on a trip to the Library. Inspired by Ali Macgraw in the film Love Story, Orla Kiely transported us back to the late 60's with a preppy, romantic autumn winter collection. Before I talk about the collection itself, I have to take my hat off to Kiely for her ever imaginative and beautifully creative sets. As you can see, the Library was quite something, complete with retro lamps, desks and a tonne of pretty books. As soon as I sat down, hot chocolate in hand and the sound of Björk's Oh So Quiet filled the room, I knew I was about to be treated to another special collection of hers. Geometric patterns and imprints influenced by maths and geometry featured across dresses and cigarette pants whilst large 'graph paper' checks were printed on bags, knitwear and two pieces. Key pieces for me were the bubblegum pink cape coat and a maxi silk dress that have the prettiest of nods to the 70's. It may be quiet in the library, but the bold and bright collection is anything but, librarian chic has never been so chic.
