Orla Kiely Posy Cross-Body | Striking Brown Leather Mini Purse

Posted on: Jul 26

Orla Kiely Posy Cross-Body BagI thought Orla Kiely was all about colorful retro prints on canvas, but the designer’s proved me wrong with this striking Posy purse. It's like nothing I've ever seen before, and there's not a hint of patterned flowers in sight.

I'm bowled over by the over-sized leather buckle detail on this small purse. I'm not sure how easy the intricate structure will be to manage, but it's so beautiful that I almost don’t care. At least there's a magnetic snap hidden underneath it, so security isn't an issue.

That stunning buckle makes this fairly boring colored brown bag come alive. Funnily enough, I actually prefer it to the more eclectic apricot pink and mint green hues. I think a bag with such an unusual feature needs to be rooted in tradition to make it wearable. The Posy is the kind of purse you could easily slot into your wardrobe to give it the wow factor.

The Posy is called a mini bag, but with careful packing you shouldn't have to leave anything you really need behind. Its long strap makes carrying a cinch, whether you prefer to sling it over your shoulder or across your body. Those functional features are welcome, but really they're secondary to the Posy's striking good looks. $250 is a bit much for a run-of-the-mill mini purse, but you could never accuse this Orla Kiely creation of being that!
