Orla Kiely Passion Flower Textured Vinyl Double Poppy Bag

Here's Orla Kiely's latest addition to her Passion Flower print collection, which was not yet up on the website at the time the rest of the bags were released. As the name would suggest, this style comes with two pouches - one in printed textured vinyl and the other in plain leather. Each bag has two d-rings at the top so you can attach one or both to the adjustable strap. A pretty clever design that allows you two different looks in one.

Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2016 Lookbook

Below are the images from Orla Kiely's Pre-Fall 2016 Lookbook, featuring a couple of the bags that have recently been released. The Passion Flower print is prominently used throughout, and it looks lovely in both colorways shown (currently, handbags and accessories are available in navy, but I'm hoping they'll also be released in the gorgeous baby pink shade shown in the outfit below). I'm totally digging all the floral patterns (aren't the backdrops so fun?! Wish the company would release it as a wallpaper!) and I'm already excited for the fall season when it hasn't even officially hit summer yet!

Orla Kiely Early Bird Print in Granite and Prussian Blue

Here's Orla Kiely's latest take on her classic Stem print - the Early Bird print, which features our favorite repeating pattern along with cute little birds every few stems (this print reminds me a lot of the SS15 Tall Flower Stem print, except the Flower Spots are now replaced with tiny birds). This collection is so adorable, and it's available in the colorways Granite and Prussian Blue, the former being my favorite of the two.













Orla Kiely Embossed Stem in Fawn and Olive Green

Here's Orla Kiely's latest Embossed Stem collection for the Pre-Fall 2016 season. These bags and accessories are available in the colorways Fawn (which we've seen before in the SS15 Sixties Stem Punched collection) and Olive Green, which complement each other, as well as the rest of the latest pieces, quite well (check out my previous posts on the  Stripe Rosebud Print and Passion Flower Textured Vinyl to see the other pieces from Orla Kiely's upcoming season).



It seems that the Jeanette Bag is now a permanent part of the collection, which I'm so happy for because it's my favorite!

This new style reminds me a lot of this season's Sixties Stem Punched Leather Iris Bag, but it's a slight upgrade in my opinion - the strap has more options for adjusting and overall just looks sturdier and well-made, and I like how the straps are attached to d-rings inside the bag as opposed to being attached to the sides with studs.
