There's lots of love for Orla Kiely patterns - they just seem to hit a lighthearted note wherever they are used, from handbags to wallpaper to bedding. Well, if there is part of daily life at home that could always use a little boost of happy, I'd say that the doing dishes/clean up chore would rank right up there. I figured this little scoop of upcoming product news would be welcome; to both the die-hard Orla fans out there and anyone on cleaning duty.
I received a box in the mail yesterday from Method, with two samples (shown above) from the upcoming line. The packaging - featuring the classic, familiar rounded bottles covered in all-over colorful Orla patterns - makes for a fresh, fun look, sink side.
The collection will consist of hand wash, dish soap and all-purpose cleanser in four scents: primrose, vanilla chai, bayleaf and pear ginger. The patterns used will likely be familiar to Orla's fans; poppy meadow in pink, a multicolor acorn print, the leaf-like stem pattern in green and pears in gold.
The accompanying PR materials give "Fall 2012" as the timeframe and describe the collaboration as "limited edition" and US-only.
