Calling all vintage lovers!
Our very own queen of prints, Miss Orla Kiely, has teamed up with shoe giant, Clarks, to bring you her debut shoe collection! This 60’s inspired range is jam packed with slingbacks, platforms and flatforms all of which feature Kiely’s quirky-cool colors (think mustard, navy and red) and floral inspired prints. Not what you’d call a believer in style over sense the Irish designer admits that it was difficult to ensure her footwear would be as practical as it is pretty. “To combine design, style, comfort and quality is difficult… we have achieved it with this collaboration.” Cool and comfy? We’re sold! While it’s clear that she loves each and every one of her designs Kiely eventually gives in to our incessant demands for her to pick a favorite style saying “I love both the Matilda (sandal) and the Maggie (large buckle slingback)”
Here at Tabitha we have a few faves of our own…
With both the trend for all things retro and midi heels still going strong we doubt this range will be around for long so if you want a slice of this mod-action then get thee to Clarks ASAP!
