Last week I was invited along to the store relaunch of Karen Millen at the Trafford Centre, after the brand changed direction last year I couldn't wait to see how the store looked. I always felt like Karen Millen was a more 30+ womenswear brand, like my Mum would go there to get an outfit for a special occasion. But Karen has almost been reborn again into a new, younger, cool Millen.
Fresh on the eyes the new white space with light washed floors were complimented by the dark metal fixtures, a more relaxed aesthetic to the previous layout. With outfits perfectly merchandised into colour trends and stories, the new collection screamed young and chic with a hint of that KM we know and love. With Jamie Bochert, Rosie Lowe and Quention Jones starring in twelve portraits for the Autumn Winter campaign, the collection was uber stylish leaving you wanting more. My favourite pieces would have to be a black lace high neck below knee dress (think Wednesday Adams) and the oxblood leather pencil skirt - definitely investment pieces for the upcoming season!
