Orla Kiely for Uniqlo UT collection


Whoa, if I'd known Orla Kiely for Uniqlo would fly out of the stores so quickly, I would have given you the heads up much earlier. (It's just that I wanted to shop and shoot this exciting collection to show you first! Never mind.)

This latest collaboration follows hot on the heels of February's Laura Ashley range and the launch of UU Uniqlo Undercover on Friday, a family-orientated collection for men, women and - a first for Uniqlo - children and babies. (I've always thought that Uniqlo would do kids' clothes well, so let's hope this debut is a taste of things to come as the pieces are seriously cute!)

As for today's launch, Orla Kiely for Uniqlo showcases the designer's distinctive prints on a plethora of T-shirts, vests, dresses, shirts, scarves and more. I particularly love the slippers but, oddly, the smallest size available is a medium, equivalent to a size UK 8! I guess the smaller sizes just didn't make it over here, sadly.

To view the collection, watch the video above. It presents Uniqlo's coloured denim collection, styled with Orla Kiely pieces and modelled by a celebrity cast ranging from teenage blogger Tavi Gevinson to singer Cyndi Lauper.

Prices for Orla Kiely for Uniqlo start at £9.90. But hurry, it's selling out fast online and when I popped by at lunchtime, the store was heaving! It's like Marni for H&M all over again.
