Orla Kiely was a hugely iconic fashion and lifestyle brand throughout the Nineties and Noughties synonymous with bold prints. Think plant and animal patterns with a cool, retro 1960/70s vibe, emblazoned over everything from clothing and handbags to furniture and homeware.

Although the brand's dresses were worn by stylish celebs like Alexa Chung and our favourite fashionable royal, the Duchess of Cambridge, it unfortunately went into administration in 2018.

But after a four-year fashion hiatus, the Irish designer is back.

For her first foray back into the world of fashion, Kiely has joined forces with Regatta – the British brand renowned for high-quality outdoor products and leisure clothing – and together they've created a stylish range of outdoor-centric pieces perfect for festival season and camping holidays.

The outdoor clothing includes floral-print pac-a-macs, wellies emblazoned with huge flowers and retro-print waterproof jackets.

Plus there's also some super-stylish camping equipment – think chairs, sleeping bags, two-man tents and foldaway tables, and useful accessories like cool bags and picnic rugs.

And, trust us, this Orla Kiely x Regatta collection not only looks amazing, but it's also practical and hugely affordable when you consider the quality and the names behind it.

Not into camping or outdoor pursuits? You're still catered for, don't worry – with everything from floral flip-flops, to pretty dresses and ruffled blouses, you can rock up to a picnic or a party and steal the spotlight with one of the stunning pieces from this hugely anticipated launch.

There are 42 covetable items currently available from today, with more due to drop throughout July so keep checking the Regatta website.

Be warned, though, we expect this collection to develop cult status and sell out quickly.

To give you a flavour of what to expect, we've picked six of our favourites.
