KAREN MILLEN

Essence of the con­fi­dent woman

Prestige Indonesia - - Supplement - www.karen­millen.com @karen_ mil­lenID

KAREN MILLEN, the Lon­don fash­ion house, has in­tro­duced its Au­tumn Win­ter 17 col­lec­tion, which cap­tures the essence of the con­fi­dent woman. The col­lec­tion cre­ates out­fit solutions for her life’s ev­ery mo­ment, from im­mac­u­late tailor­ing to the elu­sive 24-hour dress and high-oc­tane evening­wear.

Bold and glam­orous, the col­lec­tion in­tro­duces two key themes: Come

Un­done and Fem­i­nine Gran­deur. The col­lec­tion com­prises sil­hou­ette-lov­ing shapes, vi­va­cious prints and sump­tu­ous fab­rics. Tac­tile vel­vet and faux fur also take cen­ter stage along­side op­u­lent em­broi­dery, power ruf­fles and the house’s sig­na­ture de­tail­ing, while pops of red, teal, gold and ma­genta com­mand at­ten­tion.

Come Un­done re­works softly struc­ture sil­hou­ettes with draped liq­uid satins and fresh tai­lored cot­tons, fold­ing, drap­ing and belt­ing, giv­ing es­sen­tial wardrobe sta­ples a re­fresh. Corsetry draws the eyes to the waist on shirts, dresses and sleek tailor­ing, cinched with belts and shown off with re­veal-and­con­ceal cut-outs.

Graphic lines give a sport-luxe twist to grey mélange knits and fresh asym­met­ric one-shoul­der tops, while sharp tailor­ing is tem­pered with tech­ni­cal fab­ri­ca­tions and sporty el­e­ments for a thor­oughly con­tem­po­rary re­fresh.

Fem­i­nine Gran­deur show­cases ef­fer­ves­cent soft frills and vol­ume con­structed from rich satins and vel­vet lurex jacquards – a lav­ish and con­tem­po­rary ap­proach to dress­ing up. A sea­son of ex­tremes, neck­lines are high or asym­met­ric, while lengths are ei­ther maxi or mi­cro. Rem­i­nis­cent of stylish days gone by, tailor­ing nods to the 1980s with sculp­tural shoulders, while a slouched drape ef­fect takes its cue from the 1990s. the cold-shoul­der re­mains a key look for the sea­son, up­dated with one sleeve on struc­tured party dresses, while silky-smooth faux fur of­fers a way to wrap up against the chill once the party’s over.

For the sea­son’s col­lec­tion, bags come quilted, stud­ded and cross-body, in prac­ti­cal and pretty new pro­por­tions.

The new col­lec­tions are avail­able at Karen Millen stores. Jakarta: Plaza Se­nayan, Plaza In­done­sia, Ga­leries Lafayette Pa­cific Place, Cen­tral Grand In­done­sia, Surabaya: Tun­jun­gan Plaza 4.
