The Friday Frock: Orla Kiely collar dress

Orla Kiely People TreeThis aptly-named dress really is all about the collar for me. I mean just look at it! It knocks all your other basic Peter Pan-style collars into a cocked hat with its subtle pie-crust shape and adorable tie. Of course many of you might recognize this as one of the gorgeous dresses from Orla Kiely’s latest collection for People Tree. This collaboration has been fashion dynamite, allowing mere mortals like me to own a piece of Orla that doesn’t cost the earth (quite literally, given its green credentials, as you’d expect of anything from the fab People Tree website).

It’s hard to see the detail of the fabric from the image but it’s so cute. For her SS14 collaboration with People Tree, Orla Kiely designed three signature prints featuring the silhouette of dancing girls inspired by the fuchsia flower. Which reminds me that when I was little I used to call fuchsias ‘ballerina flowers’ for that very same reason.

Oh and that belt is just spot on too, elevating this pretty summer dress to a modern take on the perfect vintage frock. That woman really can do no wrong!
