orla kiely fall 2013

if you didn’t guess it from the side swept hair pinned with little hair clips, and a particular faux fur coat,the orla kiely girl for fall 2013 was inspired by none other than margot tenenbaum, one of my favorite characters from the wes anderson film, the royal tenenbaums. it’s hard for me to imagine that the film was released over ten years ago. i still remember watching a bootleg copy of it over and over in my dorm room during my first year of college! needless to say, the costume design certainly had a lasting effect on my own personal style, so this latest collection struck quite a chord. but margot wasn’t the only inspiration, you can also see a strong 1960s influence in the exaggerated daisies and thick tapestry prints finished off with cute collars and sweet silhouettes.

i’ve seen a few photos from the london presentation floating around the web (video below), and i have to say i wish i could have been there! maybe one of these days i’ll figure out a way to make my way to london fashion week. a girl can dream, can’t she?
