Orla Kiely is a designer getting a lot of column inches in the media at the moment as her designs have been worn by a number of celebrities including Pippa Middleton and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. With Wimbledon 2012 moving into its second week, expect to see plenty of dresses and hand bags by Orla Kiely both in the VIP areas and the court sides. Orla Kiely is an Irish fashion designer working with textiles and the creator of beautiful bags and prints.
As her textile prints and handbags have become more popular her designs have been featured on household items, such as kitchenware and wallpaper, and even on Citroen cars and London buses. It makes perfect sense that her beautiful and popular designs have been used for a range of covers and cases for Apple products.
Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads are noted for their design as much as their function and what I love about the range of Orla Kiely covers and cases is that they make your device even more beautiful. Whereas some protective cases detract from the design, the range from Orla Kiely makes use of the beautiful prints that she is renowned for while creating distinctive items in themselves, the perfect fashion accessory for the stylish lady. The Binary and Multi Stem prints are two standout prints, instantly recognisable as the work of Orla Kiely, and are used frequently in the iPhone and iPad ranges.
Snap-on iPhone cases are extremely popular and the Orla Kiely range includes a design compatible with both the iPhone 4 and 4S. When it comes to the iPhone cases I prefer the more unusual folio case design, these cases provide great protection, look amazing in the Binary or Multi Stem print and even have space to slip in some business cards – perfect for the woman on the go!
For the iPad user the Orla Kiely range does not disappoint, the stylish covers providing great protection for the device as well as a Velcro panel to enable your iPad to stand up. From boardrooms to homes to coffee shops an iPad in an Orla Kiely cover is going to stand out from the crowd.
To sum up Orla Kiely I would describe the prints as instantly distinctive and bold, a beautiful range of products have been created using these prints and it’s great news for iPhone and iPad users that the designs have been used on covers and cases.
