What's next on Target's designer hit-list? On the heels of John Derian's successful housewares collection, Orla Kiely (an Irish designer best known for bold retro modern prints on anything from handbags to tea cozies) is debuting a limited edition housewares line for the superstore. This has made it around (and around) the design blogosphere today but if you haven't heard yet, you can catch all the information here at Apartment Therapy, where they've managed to post the entire line (which also includes desk supplies and dishes).
I particularly love the apron (oh the apron!) and the closet organization items -- that hamper makes laundry look cute. I wonder if these items will be available through Target's website as well or if, like John Derian's line, it will only be available in Target stores. The biggest problem with store-only being that very often the entire line isn't available in a single store and/or all the good items are gone by the time I get around to getting over to my local Target. If anyone has the scoop, let me know!
