Taking cues from the 1964 film “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” and from her childhood growing up in rainy Ireland, Orla Kiely placed her models around a lamp-lit set wearing shiny belted raincoats, minidresses and wool coats with oversize buttons and a retro feel.

The presentation was charming; the clothes, a polished take on Kiely’s whimsical, girlish approach. A tiny cat print adorned the raincoats while a macro geometric floral bloomed on tunic dresses.

The designer accessorized her prim looks with chunky, platform T-bar sandals, all from the fall range Kiely created for the British shoemaker Clarks.
