A family affair, Orley bears the namesake of Matthew, Alex, and Samantha Orley. Orley is a designer brand that launched with a capsule collection of Italian-made knitwear for fall 2012 and expanded into a full men’s ready-to-wear collection for spring 2014.
Orley is known for its combination of elegant yet youthful, irreverent design with a focus on luxury knitwear and commitment to the highest-quality materials and manufacturing. The work of the Orley designers subverts classicism, using proprietary stitch techniques and an idiosyncratic color palette to create a wholly unique product.
In 2014, the Orley designers were finalists for the 2014 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, and nominated for a Fashion Group International Rising Star Award in Menswear. This year, they were also nominated for the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear and shortlisted for the 2015 LVMH Prize.
