Karen Millen is an international fashion house trading in over 50 countries across six continents. The brand focuses on democratising luxury by crafting beautifully tailored, fashion pieces cut from the most luxurious fabrics in their Atelier in Shoreditch London. The Karen Millen collection has grown to reflect the needs of the modern woman and contains seasonal trend-led pieces and limited editions as well as essential wardrobe staples. Karen Millen today offers a modern approach to fashion that focuses on the brands inherent strengths; design, quality, creativity, personality and internationalism.
The Karen Millen that I am familiar with is generally about beautiful tailoring, luxurious fabrics and flattering cuts. While the brand still prides itself on all these aspects the A/W 14 collection has seen a slight change in their styling from bright, flirty, feminine colours to something a bit darker, a bit stronger, a bit more masculine and a lot more edgy.
Today I’m wearing their Tailored Dress with Cut Outs (available here). It’s an empowering dress for a career woman, someone not afraid to take the lead, make decisions and get what she wants. This dress is perfect for the office however today I’ve teamed it with a leather jacket, statement heels and clutch to show that it also works perfectly as a cocktail dress.
