The ‘DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection’ showcases four different body and roof designs featuring Kiely’s trademark acorn and stem patterns, coloured door mirrors, rear window graphics, and a choice of black or white 17-inch alloys.

Inside, the leather seats have multi-coloured embossed headrests, stem and acorn print floor mats, and contrasting door handles and dashboard.

Based on the UK-spec DStyle HDi 90 manual, the vehicles also feature Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

The DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection will be limited to just 500 vehicles and goes on sale on February 1 from £16,000 ($25,600).

The Citroen DS3 went on sale in Australia late in the second half of 2010, and 90 examples were snapped up in its opening months in the country.

Two models are available: the 88kW/160Nm 1.6-litre petrol four-speed automatic DStyle for $32,990, and the 115kW/240Nm 1.6-litre five-speed manual DSport for $35,990.
