Ok, so I’m sure many of you have seen either Orla Keily handbags, housewares, wallpaper or even clothing.
Do you like? Over it?
I personally think this whole 70’s pattern thing is a little saturated and might be outdated in a few months.
But it is fun and I do like it…I think.

I’ve always liked 70’s pattern. But I may be biased, I go to the hippie school. I think it’s fun and it add a lot of character. But I do think that some of it may be a little too crazy for work. Well, my future work :-)

The jackets are the same pattern as the coffee mugs…?

Yeah, kinda weird….I love some of the patterns but I’ve been seeing it everywhere, esp. her handbags…I like it in small doses but I wish she would limit patterns to specific items, e.g., coffee mugs vs. dresses

I think I just saw her purse carried at a shop in the Mission. It’s actually cuter in person.

I generally think big prints are very unflattering. Like big darts.

too much of a good thing can be bad. prints are tricky. if you’re not comfortable, best to leave them alone…

well my dress matches my wall paper, my purse, my wallet, my coffee mug… if I stand still long enough maybe nobady will see me !!!
To be honest I love some of the prints the bags are way cute and if paired with a simple shirt & jeans. I don’t really think you can go wrong it just looks FUN.
Also, Christian Dior fall 2008 collection features lots of fun and funky prints and colors. I personally love this style! Check the web site:

Something I love, some things I would never go near. It’s not something I would buy in mass (wallpaper, bag, dress, wallet, etc.) but a few peices are cute. Actually, I loved the luggage and the makeup bags. But I’m absolutely not looking to spend quite that much.

I love the idea and the looks of the models but I couldn’t do it. But props to anyone who can pull it off!

I’ve never seen or heard of her designs. Some of them are cute, but I’m not too fond of her patterns. They look better on stationary/mugs.

I do quite like them, but don’t own any. I guess the colour palette isn’t particularly ‘me’, but overall yes, I like their designs.

I love it and I don’t think it will go out of style just like Merimekko will never go out of style in my opinion.
