Quality craftsmanship, artisanal techniques and cutting-edge design have come to define Karen Millen’s collections, sending its international profile soaring and securing its position as a serious player on the fashion field.
But it doesn’t stop there. Creative collaboration has been integral to its success in recent years, and the new campaign encapsulates this collective approach. Enlisting the inimitable David Bailey to shoot up-and-coming models Karlina Caune, Kirsi Pyrhonen, Nur Hellmann and Grace Gao wearing trophy pieces from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, the campaign brings together the best of new and established talent, simultaneously acting as a platform to propel Bailey’s muses onto the world’s style stage.
Karen Millen has always been held in high esteem thanks to its luxurious high-low mix of season-defining cuts and wardrobe staples designed by the dedicated in-house design team at its Shoreditch atelier. Delving deftly into the psyche of the modern woman, they realise her reality season after season.
So, what to covet from the latest collection? Signature butter-soft leather jackets, stripped-back precision-cut tuxedo tailoring, louche knitwear and thigh-high boots will leave us ready for our close up.
