Orla Kiely AW15 Etc: Tonal Stem in Storm and Foliage

The first of Orla Kiely's Autumn/Winter 2015 Etc collection is slowly making its debut on the UK/Worldwide site with the release of the Big Owl print, and now this Tonal Stem pint in the colorways Storm, a combination of grays and yellow, and Foliage, with shades of pink and green. This collection is made of 100% polyester with leather trims and is unlined, so these bags will be similar to the previous nylon collections (Buttercup Stem print, Flower Spot print, and Daisy Stem print).

The same styles are still available, although they tweaked the Backpack a bit and made the front pocket larger and the overall shape a bit more rectangular. The exterior leather pocket is gone as well, and replaced with Orla Kiely logos on the zipper pulls as mentioned in my previous Big Owl print post.

What do you think of the AW15 Etc collection so far? I absolutely LOVE the Big Owl print, but I'm admittedly not as excited about this Tonal Stem collection. I definitely prefer the coated canvas over the polyester/nylon materials. I'm excited to see what else Orla Kiely has in store for the Etc collection, as well as the mainline collection!
