Spring 2014 | The New Reality
The essence is the same, the attitude has changed. Karen Millen is confident but smiling, strong but easy. This fresh spirit is encapsulated in Spring 2014.
From our Shoreditch-based atelier, our design team wanted to convey modern, urban, intelligent design – Karen Millen’s house codes – but with a renewed sense of ease.
This is the New Reality: the crisp white cotton shirt, patchworked denim, a hint of nautical and our signature leather jackets reworked in fresh white, playful stripes or a pop of colour. These clothes are solution pieces; they are the building blocks of a modern wardrobe each playing to the brand’s strengths of impeccable quality and attention to detail.
Spring 2014 | Sports Luxe
Effortless ease also comes in the form of looser silhouettes with a luxury sports vibe: bomber jackets, drawstrings waist, sweatshirts and t-shirt dresses are worked in mesh, laser punched textures, and sheer and opaque fabrics with a technical twist. This is our modern Karen Millen woman, in her wrap skirt and slim slouch jumper, she encapsulates how we feel about everything that is sophisticated yet cool about London.
Spring 2014 | Power Pretty
But our modern muse is nothing if not sensual. Empowered yet feminine, she wants her clothes to reflect this. Inspired by a vintage Victorian cape, our design team reproduced its exquisite three dimensional surface on slim, simple dresses, curvy skirts, a mini jacket and devore t-shirts. Cut in red, black and white, the effect is graphically strong yet pretty. This brings us to the new Power Pretty – strong simple shapes that are beautifully decorated, be it with neon blooms or ivory lace. Relaxed, easy separates that are, quite simply, a cut above.
