Karen Millen has always been known for two things: excellent craftsmanship and beautiful tailoring, but for AW16 we’re seeing a strong evolution from this premium?brand. Exquisite separates in autumnal shades of grape and green are a strong feature of the brand’s new collection, inviting women to express their own unique personality through a mix and match approach to dressing. Individual style is at the heart of this brand and the Karen Millen designers have brought a fresh playfulness, eclecticism and refinement to its clothes this season. Texture (one of the biggest trends for AW16) plays a key role, as suede, faux fur and metallic finishes are mixed with wools, silks and crepes. The mood at Karen Millen for AW16 is expressed beautifully through its latest campaign images (pictured above). A series of portraits capture three women both singly and together in a stunning Georgian house setting. The clothes offer a rich tapestry of colour and texture – perfect for bringing definition to your new-season wardrobe.
