There are two Petticoat Lane locations where you can find Orla Kiely luggage: Petticoat Lane Tribeca at 149 Reade Street and Petticoat Lane Upper East Side at 1184 Lexington Avenue at 81st Street. Here you will find the perfect totes for a quick weekend stay somewhere. The Orla Kiely Oval Stem Medium Tote is made of matte laminate with a popper close and features the signature Orla Kiely leaf design in Amber or Jade. The handles are of cotton canvas reinforced with leather. Extra details that will keep you organized are zip pockets and a key chain. This bag goes for $135. Another nice little tote is the Orla Kiely Climbing Stem Tote, which is basically the same tote in a different pattern, which comes in Ivy or Shadow. This tote goes for $146.
Hop over to Nordstrom where you'll find both a medium and a large travel tote with the multicolored "whimsical truck" pattern. The medium nylon travel tote goes for $235. It has a detachable shoulder strap and measures 15 inches by 16 inches by 7 1/2 inches. The strap drop is 6 inches and the shoulder strap drop is 13 inches to 23 inches. The large tote, which is a perfect travel bag, features a top zip closure and a zip pocket on the exterior. It measures 20 inches by 15 inches by 10 inches. The large tote also comes with the shoulder strap and adjustable gussets for an interior that is sure to accomodate your every need. To really look spiffy, complete the set with the Orla Kiely Cabin Upright Travel Bag, also at Nordstrom. The color is graphite/cream in the truck pattern. It has wheels, and top and side handles for great portability. It has a zip-around closure and measures 18 inches by 18 3/4 inches by 8 inches. This beauty costs $305. Go to the store or order online from Nordstrom. While the cabin pieces are most likely suitable as carry-ons, it would be wise to check your airline's regulations before setting off to the airport.
At Pop Deluxe, you can find the Orla Kiely Travel collection of luggage, including a smart little beauty case that has a slotted strap in the back you can slip right over the suitcase handle. It costs $119.99 and comes in the same truck pattern as the tote and the cabin luggage.
Also visit the newly opened Orla Kiely boutique at 5 Mercer Street in SoHo, which has echoes of the designer herself with its cheery colors and vintage aesthetic. As you would expect, her full catalogue is available and on display at the store.
