The Industry: Orla Kiely

One of the masters of modern textile design (as far as we’re concerned), Irish-born, London-based designer Orla Kiely makes pieces for the modish girl who demands that everything around her be gorgeous. We love how Kiely melds the geometric leanings of mid-century modern design with a fluid, organic quality that can make the most mundane of objects absolutely poetic. Other people may rely on Prozac to lift themselves out of a funk, but we think that slipping on an Orla Kiely dress does the job without the side effects. Here, a few Kiely pieces that we adore.
