Not even a broken foot could keep Orla Kiely from the launch party for her new collection of Belkin tech cases for Target yesterday evening. The Irish-born, London-based designer had a little mishap during a recent trip to San Francisco, but she put her best foot forward—in a pair of sensible Marni sandals—and welcomed guests to her Soho store to celebrate.

Orla Kiely's Resort '14

Orla Kiely has had a lifelong love affair with pattern. “I sometimes think that my brain works in repeat. I love the order and regiment of repetition, and how anything and everything can be patterned in this way, as if you are looking at the world through a prism or a kaleidoscope,” she wrote in the introduction to her aptly named book Pattern.

You’d have to be, well, heartless to resist some of the sweet pieces here, including belted shifts and slim trousers featuring a flocked velvet micro heart print, as well as jacquard skirt suits that incorporated the shape into a glen-plaid check. Swingy trenches that gave off a slightly retro vibe and cute crop tops and matching briefs rounded out the lineup.
