I do think the Orla Kiely x Halfords collaboration is a great idea. So often the prints you see on outdoor accessories are either ugly and ill-considered, or in primary shades so bright one’s retinas burn on sight. But, across bicycles and camping accessories, her pretty prints work beautifully. (We covered some of the bike accessories at Christmas here.)
These little camping chairs are also beautifully designed; they pack flat for travel, but are still very comfy to sit on, and would be perfect for any outdoor concert. (I’m sure I’m not the only one whose knees creak when forced to sit on a picnic blanket for more than ten minutes.)
(Do also check out the bike range – there’s currently 20% off.)
There’s also a folding camping chair in the range, which is currently HUGELY reduced in the sale – grab them before they go!
Whilst we are on the subject of picnic essentials, the other fab thing that crossed my desk this summer was this genius cheese, bread and wine pocket knife combo from Victorinox. Of course I have their classic Swiss Army Knife, but this is an excellent addition to my collection for outdoor eating opportunities.
