Orla Kiely Resort 2017 Stem: Stripe Tulip in Dusk and Spring

Orla Kiely's Spring/Summer 2017 collection is slowly starting to trickle onto the website. First up is the addition of the Stripe Tulip print for the Stem collection, and they are available in the colorways Dusk and Spring. The print is lovely, but I'm actually not too crazy about the color combos. I do, however, like that the zipper pulls and logo tag are in black leather - a subtle difference from the brown leather we're used to seeing. Another difference to note is the pricing - all the pieces come in at a slightly lower price point (about a 12% drop). I am a bit curious as to why the pieces are priced a bit lower, but I'm not complaining! 

Another (slightly) new addition is the Satchel (shown below). This style has been available since last season, but it now comes in a smaller size, which I find to be quite cute (however, there is no top handle on the smaller size). This is probably my favorite piece from the collection, and if I had to choose a colorway, it would be the Spring.

  1. I believe these are Resort 2017, not SS 2017.

    1. Ah, thank you. I am always confused about that. However, wouldn't the Resort collection still be part of the Spring/Summer line?

    2. Not really. They are presented as separate collections. SS 2017 will arive in Feb and have different color palate and inspirations.

      BTW, hope you received the comment I left on your IG.

    3. Thank you for the info. I actually ended up looking up the difference because I never really knew. I always get mixed up with all the different collections - SS, FW, Resort, and now L'Orla!

      And yes, I did see your comment - I will reply to you there. Thanks for looking out!
