From the designer behind some of the most eye-catching, distinctive and sought after collections in British fashion today, comes four beautiful Orla Kiely board books. Blending iconic design with a baby or toddler's first steps into learning, Orla Kiely has created a range of collectable and desirable board books. In Orla Kiely Numbers, familiar designs and patterns from the designers clothing and accessories range are utilised to create simple yet engaging picture book spreads for a child ready to learn all about counting.
From a small collection of accessories, commissioned by Harrods following her graduation from the Royal College of Art, the Orla Kiely range has grown to include a complete ready-to-wear collection, travel, homeware and stationery, making her one of the UK's most eminent designers. The creative world of Orla Kiely was founded in 1995 to express visually, her love of pattern, colour, texture and rhythm, which as components all play and work together. Her instinctive graphic discipline to simplify and stylise everyday motifs and forms adds another dimension. Her work achieves strength with a very modern quality, while her nostalgia for all things mid century, help make her patterns charming, uplifting and instantly recognisable
