Orla Kiely Spring 2013

The Clothes: Perfect. Kiely was inspired by a '60s beach vacation as well as Raul Difi and Slim Aarons. I fell in love with boatneck babydoll dresses

The Clothes: Perfect.

The Soundtrack: DJ Tennessee Thomas spun sweet retro tunes.

The Vibe: Girly, happy and British. Every time I've been inside Orla Kiely's store, I've thought, "I should just stop shopping other places and buy my entire life here." From clothes to handbags to notebooks to lamp shades, they have everything you need to create your own super cute British '60s universe. For this presentation, they parked in the store an actual '60s caravan that they found, redid the inside of, and wallpapered in one of Kiely's signature prints. Inside the caravan was a mini screening room that seated four. Overheard inside: "Were you saying it would be fun to hotbox this?" There was no hotboxing that we're aware of, but there were Pimm's cups and a Van Leeuwen ice cream truck (which stayed outside).
