Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world of Orla Kiely is one where pattern reigns. Immediately recognizable, her unique design language and sure sense of graphic control has seen her label become a hugely successful global brand in the decade since its launch. From her early signature bags, the collection has grown to include a complete women's wear line, accessories, travel and home ware, sold in shops and outlets worldwide. Giving a personal account of what informs her work and inspires her designs, Orla looks at pattern in all its manifestations - the impact of scale and proportion, rhythm and texture and the all-important dimension of color. With her prints applied to a wide range of products, from bags and clothing to decorative objects and soft furnishings, she is in a unique position to comment on all the ways in which pattern can enrich our lives. Illustrated with many examples of Orla's work, along with inspirational images that have shaped her style, the result is both a visual treasury and a thoughtful guide to using pattern with flair and confidence.
