A renowned story teller, Orla didn't disappoint this season when she showed her SS15 collection through the tale of a Spring garden in bloom. On entering the show space we were faced with a rather underwhelming scene; an assortment of plant pots lined up in front of a small, white picket fence. One by one as the models filed out, they placed large wooden flowers into each pot, so that eventually a full flower garden was set before us. Simultaneously, Californian born artist Alia Penner painted flowers onto a clear background so that the "garden" really was in full bloom by the end of the presentation.   

As expected, the clothing was cute, colourful and graphic with a nod to the Sixties. Bold floral prints paired with minimal, muted handbags showed flower power in a new, modern light, whilst clean cut silhouettes stayed true to Orla Kiely's more classic, feminine aesthetic. Favourite looks included a loose floral blouse worn with a smart, a-line skirt in blue check and a more tomboyish pair of pastel blue culottes paired with a simple t-shirt and slouchy jacket.
