Orla Kiely Summer 2013

Summer has finally arrived, and so has Orla Kiely's Summer 2013

Orla Kiely's playful new collection of totes and washbags have made us anticipate our summer holidays even more. Whether you're jumping on a plane, popping down to the beach or just visiting family, these sturdy tote bags are made from resilient tarpaulin and are a generous size too.

Feeling bold? These Punched Stem Willow Bags come in two bright colours and are sure
to grab the attention of other beach-goers. We especially love the contrast of the pink against white, showcasing the iconic Orla Kiely stem print.

If you're looking for something a bit different, Orla Kiely's retro-inspired Big Spot Flower Shadow Willow Bags are adorned in Orla Kiely's brand new pattern in Truffle and Pink. This funky pattern is flexible enough to take you from tanning by the pool to a special meal in the evening. 

All totes are a perfect size to fit everything in - from towels to sun cream.  

All tote bags and washbags have light tan trims in high quality leather, making them a bargain at under £50.00.

There's More to Alex Monroe than the Bee

By now, we're all familiar with Alex Monroe's iconic Bumblebee necklace, as seen on British beauties such as Emma Watson, Laura Marling and Sienna Miller.

However, this is not the end to Mr Alex Monroe's talents! He's produced an enormous range of beautiful designs, sometimes eccentric, and always adhering to the spirit of 'Britishness' that his brand has embodied for nearly 25 years now.

Here at Pod, we love Alex Monroe Jewellery and so have decided to take the time to introduce you to a couple of his other pieces that you might never have seen before but are equally as stunning as his world famous Bumblebee necklace!

This necklace has a simple, yet gorgeously decadent design.

These lovely little studs are jolly springlike!
A popular and complex design, this necklace is an intricate and elegant piece.

Featuring both 22ct gold plate and sterling silver, this apple bite necklace is a delicately witty and whimsical piece.

From Alex's latest collection 'The Chase', this little rabbit tiny, delicate and full of energy!

 A witty and elegant necklace. The large wheel actually does goes round. Perfect for any vintage enthusiast.

Hopefully, we've introduced a few new pieces to you and made you as enthusiastic about Alex Monroe as we are! 

Don't forget, even more designs are available on our website:
