Orla Kiely SS16 Mainline: Textured Leather in Nude and Denim

This season's textured leather bags come in the colors Nude and Denim. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Nude colorway - a creamy shade with gorgeous pinky undertones. I want every single piece in this color, but of course I have to be realistic so I have my favorites narrowed down to the Jeanie and the Tillie Bag. The Denim is also an awesome color - so different from anything I've seen from Orla Kiely in a long time. I think this deep blue shade looks fantastic on the Mini Bay Bag.

I love the Jeanie Bag for its structure and streamlined look. I have this style in the Scribble Sunflower print and I've enjoyed that bag so much that I'd like to add another to my collection.

These large Tillie bags remind me of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull (which I someday hope to own!) - I like how spacious they are, which make them perfect for work. According to the website, the Nude colorway has a green resin coating on the inside. I wish they showed a picture of this because I'm quite curious what shade of green it is. It doesn't seem like any would pair well with the Nude, but then again, Orla Kiely is a genius at choosing colors and pairing them together so I'm sure it looks fantastic.

This style is another favorite of mine - I have one in the Lemon colorway and it's such a great bag to wear for casual outings.

Another style I don't own yet is this Rosemary Bag. Once again, I prefer the Nude colorway because I really like the orange enamel closures.



Eek, more bag charms in more colors! You all know how much I've been loving mine in the Chalk colorway and I would love to have one in every color so I'm glad to see that Orla Kiely has kept this style as part of the collection.


  1. I really love the nude sweet pea bag with the orange clasp! - T

    1. That one is really cute, but the Sweet Pea Bags are SO small. Do you own one yet? My brother got me one for my birthday this year and while I love it, I feel like I'm so limited when I wear it because it's just so small.

  2. oh good to know, thanks!-T
