There’s no connection I know of between Orla Kiely’s collections and the New Order song Leave me Alone but the two are linked in my head. I view Orla Kiely’s collections as a daydream that I dont want to stray away from. The textiles catch my eye like fancy stationary in a shop that I just have to have. I will never need it, I just want it. This past spring I contemplated on buying an Orla Keily skirt directly from their site. The thought of spending $350 on single skirt was a struggle. I spoke about this with a friend because I really, really wanted it and I got her opinion. She pointed out that the skirt was 100% silk and asked me with both hands placed stern on her hips, “are you prepared to take on the responsibility of caring for something made of 100% silk?” The thought of owning silk didn’t scare me, however the thought of spending that much money on a single item did. It’s just not part of my lifestyle right now but a girl can dream right?
So, its been a couple of months since I had that conversation and you know what? I never got the skirt. So here I am daydreaming about owning the Fall 2015 RTW collection with the music of New Orders Leave Me Alone playing around me. Maybe I’ll shoot for next spring:
