Orla Kiely Spring Summer 2010

I have lots of colorful posts to share with you today to get you in the mood for Spring! First up, London-based Irish designer Orla Kiely. She just launched her Spring/Summer 2010 collection of fashion, accessories, stationery and things for the home on both her UK and US websites and I just have to share them to pick you up if you're experiencing the Monday morning blues. I think this is her strongest collection to date - the palette is very bright and energetic, less muddy than past seasons, don't you think?.

The handbags and wallets are my favorites, though I also like the new assortment of mugs and pillows along wit the embroidered stem towel - a subtle detail against white. I think her patterns this season really show a different side of Orla that I like and found her inspiration for this season most fascinating, "Orla Kiely finds her muse in Hayley Mills. This collection draws inspiration from The 70sā€™ Parent Trap to The Sound of Music. The collection reveals a designer whose work is evolving as she steps forward into a more charming and elegant world."

What things to do you see that you simply must have?
