A Little Funky and A Whole Lotta Fresh: Orla Kiely for Target

I'm digging the retro throwback of these plates and mugs by Orla Kiely. Orla certainly has that 70s vibe going on and though some of it may be a little too funky, taken in small doses it comes off fresh. Launched in 1997, Orla has carved a niche in the fashion scene with her use of color, geometry and pattern. To me, she's like Kate Spade's groovier older sister. You know, the one that wears oversize sunglasses, smokes like a chimney and still wears fur coats. Or maybe she's a modern day Marcia Brady.

Orla's Target line is coming out in February. Just a heads up!

@grace - thought I recognize that apron!
Love it, alice!

I could see these in Kate Winslet's house in Revolutionary Road.
