Orla Kiely

Spritzing up a Blast from the Past

Honoured and esteemed, Orla Kiely OBE is renowned for her unique retro prints featured on everything from homeware to clothing to handbags. Both Kiely and KMI brands (manufacturers of the Eau Du Perfume) approached Junior to envision Orla’s iconic style into a range of physical products (candle, diffuser, and perfume). They envisioned something that is modern and clean yet still has that sense of classic nostalgia to it.

Junior formed the concept direction, enhancing Orla’s reminiscent colours into a range of mature and refined products. Through maintaining the same iconic patterns, colours, and rhythms, Junior transformed physical representations of Orla’s designs into functional products, such as the 1960’s inspired red perfume cap. By keeping it simple, clean and minimalistic, Junior retained the same recognisability and charm that is oh-so-common with Orla’s work.
