Through her ongoing collaboration with Clarks, ready-to-wear regular Orla Kiely blends old and new with a fresh sensibility, fueled by her love of culture and the royals.
Color banned from my closet: “Burgundy. I don’t wear it that often.”
Most interesting person I met on a plane: “A funny hippie when I was a junior designer at Esprit. I was flying to Singapore and he to the Maldives. We had so many tales, we talked most of the flight.”
Favorite irish writer: “Seamus Heaney. I was lucky enough to see a reading by him.”
Royal I’d like to have tea with: “The Queen. Drinking tea, eating scones and talking about ‘Coronation Street,’ a soap opera in the U.K.”
