Orla Kiely SS16 Collection at London Fashion Week

For her SS16 collection, Orla Kiely takes inspiration from American photographer Slim Aarons and his vast array of 1970s poolside imagery. Taking in the clashing colours, Orla’s collection pays homage to the haze of the era.

Icons from the late 1970’s range from Lilly Pulitzer and her Palm Beach style, to Paula Prentis and Katherine Ross, the original Stepford Wives, influence Orla’s modern take on this multi printed, pastel coloured world  where the daily routine mixes seamlessly with leisure activities and cocktail hour.

Maxi jumpsuits are featured in abundance of wallpaper prints.

Cool shirt dresses all with appropriately mismatched bags, mingle among simple romantic white cotton lace dresses.

Long and short dungarees styles are worn over crisp white poplin shirts  

as well as exquisite silk georgette flowing dresses with lavish frill details.
