Heeere's Orla!

Well, the wait is over... Orla Kiely has arrived at Target!

It seems that Target does a soft release of their designer collaborations a few days before the official release. I had my choice of the Thakoon for Target line when I happened to be in the store a few days before the advertised date, and hoped for the same with Orla. And my wish was granted today when I saw a small display at the end of one aisle in Housewares.

They didn't yet have the full line, only the laundry bag, closet organizers, and a variety of storage boxes. The employee I asked said they had just put them out today so I figure I'll check again tomorrow (my local Target is conveniently located on my way home from work).

I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the products. I was assuming they'd be either covered in printed paper or otherwise cheaply finished, but the storage bins seemed pretty sturdy and were fabric covered, with all the edges neatly seamed. I have high hopes for the rest of the Orla Kiely for Target line!
