Orla Kiely FW17 Mainline: Birdie Applique Nylon

I think this design is just too cute! The bird's wings and handles are made of leather, while the rest of the bag is nylon twill.






Orla Kiely FW17 Mainline: Giant Flower Stud in Heather, Orange, and Yellow

What I love about the Sweet Pea bags this season are the interior flap - such a fun little touch to have the Passion Flower Print on the inside! I also love the simple two button flower closures and the chain strap.

Orla Kiely FW17 Mainline: Textured Leather Embossed Stem in Indigo, Shell Pink, and Spruce

This season's Embossed Stem bags include a textured leather background, which is a nice new touch (see past season colorways Mustard and IndigoFawn and Olive, Red, and Black, which have smoother leather finishes). One of the details I love about a few pieces from this collection are the zipper pulls, which have little dangling charms.

My favorites from this collection would have to include the Caraway Bag in Indigo, a beautiful dark blue that is currently missing from my collection. I also love the chain detailing on the shoulder straps. Another favorite is the Large Iris Bag in Shell Pink. I've been loving pinks lately, so this bag quickly made it to my wish list, especially since it also features those adorable zipper pulls.

Orla Kiely FW17 Mainline: Passion Flower Print Textured Vinyl in Aubergine

This is Orla Kiely's second release of the Passion Flower Print (see SS16). I was obsessed with the first version's navy blue background, and now I can't decide if I like that one or this gorgeous Aubergine colorway better! I am absolutely LOVING the Small Bonnie Bag from this collection (probably my favorite piece from the entire FW17 line). I love its adjustable chain strap, allowing you to wear this on the shoulder or as a cross body (maybe my obsession with this bag comes from the fact that this design is very much like a Chanel Classic Flap, which has long been my holy grail bag). I am also curious about the Jeanie Bag, which is shown with a yellow pouch in the lookbook, but doesn't appear to be included with the bag when you look at the product page.

I'm guessing the yellow pouch is something you have to buy separately. It does look like the Giant Flower Stud Sweet Pea Bag, but I don't see how it would attach to the Jeanie Bag. If anyone has any info on this, please let me know!
