ORLA KIELY - halfords collection

Orla Kiely has done it again and created another wonderful licensing deal for her prints. This is time it is with UK retailer Halfords to produce a series of bicycles, bike accessories, and camping gear. Orla's designs now appear on everything from saddle covers, to tents and, enamel mugs. Branded under the Orla Kiely diffusion label 'Olive and Orange' (named after her labradoodle dog) there are three patterns that make up the range : Olive, Orange and Leaf. Orla developed the prints especially for the new collection as a natural fit for cycling and outdoors. They are organic and inspired by nature, but with the sixties-style heritage that Orla is known for. Whether cycling round town on one of the Dutch style print bikes, or taking one of the eye catching tents to a festival they are certainly very striking. Scroll down to see more and all lines are available online here at Halfords.
