Orla Kiely AW17 – Stem Bags

Today I will be talking about the Fall Stem Bags. For the PRE-Fall Stem Bags, check last month’s post. I didn’t see the whole range so this will be just some of what is coming up.

The Giant Linear Stem pattern will come in a dark purple colorway. It’s so dark that it looks similiar to the Licorice (black) colorway as you can see in the picture above. The bag next to it is in the Sycamore Seed pattern. There will be clothing in this pattern too, of course.

The shiny canvas will see the return of the classic Big Spot Shadow Flower pattern. The big spot is a light lavender, not white.

The big news in the leather Embossed Flower stem bags is that they will now be available in rucksack/knapsack form. The colorways it will come in are these three: black, brown, or metallic gold.

I also some canvas totes with a big stylized bird on it. There is a bird bagcharm to match with it. Sorry, no photo available.

 

Orla Kiely Clocks and Other News

At the end of this month, the UK is suppose to finally launch the new range of wall and alarm clocks that has been promised for a couple of years now. Yet another way to stemify your home. I discussed the clocks with OK-USA management and as far as they know, they are not expecting them this side of the Atlantic. Sad face. I hope this is not true but I guess there is always Amara.com if worse come to worst.

I didn’t have internet this weekend and missed when the old stock I mentioned that I saw last week in the NYC store were put online. It looks like most of the stuff have already sold out but I was able to get a wallet to replace my old one. I noticed that when an item is down to “Limited Stock”, that means that there is only 1-3 left.

One thing that is no longer on the USA website but that the NYC store still has 1 or 2 of  are the animal keyrings. They are currently $37 but if you still haven’t gotten one yet, this is probably going to be your last chance to phone order. Don’t forget to mention that lindaseton sent ya if you do 😉

AW17: OK Mainline Bags

I don’t know about you but I am already looking forward to AW17. So much purple and lavender! My favorite colors. The bag above is a Jeanie in a new punched pattern (Tall Flower?). I thought it was an Ella at first because it looked so big in person. Notice the new style of handles? I think it’s a downgrade. It will also come in a mustard/cumin type colorway which you can see in the couch pic. Still, I love purple! I have a Punched Poppy in the Plum colorway from AW13. It might be the same color for all I know.

As you can see on the couch, the Passion Flower Textured Vinyl is back in this new lavender colorway. Again, notice the new style handles on that Jeanie. The yellow SLG on this Jeanie does NOT come with it; it’s sold separately.

Orla Kiely Card Holder

These Card Holders will come in THREE new colorways for this season. Another reason I held off buying them this spring. I will be getting the lavender cw when they come out but all 3 were g-g-g-gorgeous!

There will be three new keyrings/bagcharms for this season. The one I am looking forward to the most is this giant four petal flower that looks like this hanging purse in the pic above. I think this is better than the Giant Flower Keyring offered this spring because it’s 1) bolder and bigger and 2) the four petal flower is more iconically OK than the 6 petal Giant Flower in the spring line.

The other 2 keyrings were some heavy metal dice that looked similiar to the dice on the OK Charm Bracelet and a very stylized Bird to match some canvas bags from the Stem Line. Sorry, no other animal keyrings.

I will talk about the AW17 Stem Bags in a separate post. Are you excited yet?
