Spring is great for a lot of reasons – good weather, revival of colour, newness. A fashion clean slate if you will. This in turn also makes it very stressful… Where to look for all the fresh trends? Luckily for you Karen Millen has it all covered under one roof.
First up is The Art of the Hand. This trend key takes us back to the hand-drawn sketches and the creative process of designs, with brush strokes and painterly prints applied by hand and digitally on lush silks and other textures alike.
It’s no secret the ‘70s are having a moment this year, so this Bohemian Utility trend makes perfect Think loose pieces worn with luxurious leathers and khakis for a stylish yet effortless look. Where Karen Millen shines is the techniques used when hand sewing and draping the garments. Pair with espadrilles and fringed accesories to get the most out of this trend.
Ready to earn your Stripes? Elevate your stripes this Spring by thinking about ways to modernize your staples – and Karen Millen knows impeccable tailoring. Whether it’s an incredibly cut trench or the perfect side stripe trouser, you choose which route to take with this sportswear trend.
A continuation of the first trend, The New Pretty focuses more on occasion wear that lets femininity shine with white hues for the high Summer. The silhouettes may be simple but the craftsmanship is complex – elaborate 3D embroidery and cutwork. A surefire way to stand out in the crowd.
