I love Orla Kiely and think that she's got a great design sense, all retro and mid-century modern. In February, Target will launch a line of her signature-print kitchen items.
But I did see something that stopped me in my tracks. The Orla Kiely Wottle Reusable Water Bottle from Brita. It is being marketed as the the world´s first designer reusable water bottle, which is probably the stupidest thing I've seen in a long while. I think that reusing water bottles is a great idea, but a designer water bottle? It features Kiely's signature leaf print in shades of green.
The website goes on to say Fill the Wottle up with water before you leave the house, and avoid buying environmentally unfriendly (and expensive!) bottled water whilst out and about, and do it all with a stylish Orla Kiely branded Wottle. If the designer water bottle isn't the stupidest thing, then the name is!
At £7.99, or $11.37 at today's exchange rate, I would probably just find an old Evian bottle to use. What do you think?
