British retail brand Orla Kiely has gone bust and closed its London stores. The £8m brand, owned by Irish designer Kiely, has appointed David Ruben & Partners as its administrators.
Orla Kiely, worn by the likes of Kate and Pippa Middleton and Alexa Chung, ceased to trade after its parent company, Kiely Rowan, went into administration.
“Thank you for embracing our brand and designs throughout the years and for your ongoing support,” said the brand. However, Orla Kiely Home and Design-branded accessories and homeware will continue to be sold through distribution partners.
