Designer Vicky Phillips is the founder of Lightship Print Shop, a surface pattern studio that launched earlier this year. This exciting new surface pattern studio based on a Lightship moored in East London with a strong focus on conversational prints for Women, Kids & Baby.

NEW SEASON - orla kiely

Above is a beautiful new pattern design for AW19 from Orla Kiely. The 'Patchwork' print is a re-imagining of their archival stem design paired with a dainty cup flower. In neutral shades of tan, cream, navy, lilac and citrine, it creates a refreshing colour palette for autumn. It's available on bags and accessories and the Patchwork print is applied to coated cotton canvas using the traditional screen print method to produce rich and vibrant colours. It is nearly a year ago that Orla Kiely ceased trading after falling into debt and it has been a challenge to rise again. But as you can imagine Orla could not stop designing and her passion for print has meant things are back on track again.

In 2019 Orla also collaborated on a range of furniture with Barker and Stonehouse....

And finally here are some products from Orla Kiely spotted in my local John Lewis over the Summer...
