Introducing Orla La- AW16 Ready To Wear

I make no secret of the fact I'm a HUGE Orla Kiely fan, her designs are always ridiculously in tune with my style. She nails my taste and everything I adore about clothes in one fell swoop within every collection she creates. So imagine my utter delight when I discovered the video presentation for her new AW16 Orla La collection sat waiting patiently for me in my inbox this afternoon!

The video is an absolute dream. Created by film maker Mercedes Helnwein featuring Northern soul inspired music from Chris Watson along with some very care free, whimsical, Northern Soul-esque dancing from the models (which immediately wins extra brownie points from me).

The collection is a wonderful mix of sixties effortless glamour with quintessential British style. Baby doll dresses in day-dream pastels teamed with earthy toned petticoat jackets. Bold mustard's next to shimmering metallic's. Plush velvet, upon tweed tailoring with velvet ribbon trims. Frilled knitwear and pretty Organza ruffles... I've literally died and gone to clothes heaven. My wish list from this collection is endless (and by endless I mean I basically want EVERYTHING). Plus the majority of outfit's featured are then nicely finished off with my all time favourite Orla Kiely gold Mary-Jane's I pretty much never have off my feet! It's all too much! It would have been seriously rude of me to not share this video with you. So aren't I a good friend?

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
