Irish Brand, Orla Kiely – Has Launched Their Stunning New Bag Collection

Irish brand Orla Kiely (who makes bags, accessories, prints, gift bags and furniture) – has announced their latest bag collection launch: a stunning new selection of handbags and purses designed with luxurious leather.

This timeless new collection combines fashion with utility, and utilises the brand’s popular prints in long-lasting leather designs to see customers through rain and shine in the coming years. And as with all good quality leather bags, the pieces will get better with wear, making them the perfect long-term fashion investment.

From coin purses to crossbody bags, ‘Queen of Prints,’ Orla Kiely, – has designed a range that is compact, yet extremely functional for today’s modern shopper, Versatile and chic, – the bags are the ideal accessory for work and play, – and they’re an absolute ‘must-have’ from Orla Kiely’s signature collection. The collection includes: the Iris Handbag, the Juno Crossbody Bag, the Carrie Long Zip Purse, and the Carla Zip Purse.

Orla Kiely OBE Founded her business in 1995 to realise her dream of bringing modern mid-century inspired patterns, a hint of 1960’s cool, and the comforting nostalgia for the time into everyday 21st century life. Based on her 3 deep rooted passions of colour, pattern and good design, the personality and creative mark of the brand was rooted, – following the simple philosophy that the fun, bold and graphic style Orla adores, – can bring joy and smiles to many. 

These strong, minimalised patterns became their signature, and it was through a small range of practical and eye-catching bags designed with functionality in mind, – that their signature style was established. Since then, the collections have grown full of print and colour, and the brand now boasts over 250k followers across social media, and they’ve been featured in various publications, including the BBC and Grazia.

Orla said: “I always loved mid-century design and I trawled the markets in Portobello and Montreuil in Paris for vintage treasures (especially objects or clothing from the sixties and seventies), – helping to feed my passion and establish my style. My dream was always to create a style with a strong sense of identity. I love to reference 1960s culture; fashion, film, interiors and graphic design. I never get bored of the time.
