Just a quick note. I have bought the Orla kiely uniqlo when they had the last range in the spring. Designers such as Orla and Laura Ashley and cath kidston let uniqlo use their fabric designs. The fabric quality is much poorer than the original items. They are good and wash well but are not the quality of an original item (which would be 10x the price).

Thanks for the tip, I see Orla Kiely Uniqlo are 100% polyester and Orla Kiely scarves are 100% silk

Dont bother with the tops or tunics. The fit is terrible. I've been to store to try the whole lot on and every colour fits different in every style. The tunics are the worst, you can't do the buttons up on the sleeves in the small if you are a size 8 - 10 and not done up looks wrong. The medium looks like a huge maternity dress and the sleeves just about do up.

I've got two but as much as I love the print they are going back.

If you are a waif, with the tops go for small, normal 8 - 10 get a medium. Some prints have stretchier fabric than others.

The one with the cream background and the classic multicolur print has the most stretch and is longer than all the others.

Thanks for the feedback - I'm far from a waif so I'm hoping the large tunic will fit me comfortably!!!! The feedback looks ok - and Grazia have a video of the one I am buying on their website and it looks ok....so I have my fingers crossed! Maybe they are more suitable for us "fatties"???!!

I'm thinking either. Dimensions were something like 170 x 70 cm ish and was called a stole I think.
