    Karen Millen has a new collection, and it’s looking better than ever. The much loved British brand has taken a new direction this season, creating a cool new aesthetic we all want to wear.

    Look out for their new campaign for Autumn Winter starring Jamie Bochert, Rosie Lowe and Quentin Jones. Look through the 12 portraits and try and choose which girl you want to be. Maybe its the super-cool styling or the unbelievably chic house location, but we are totally feeling the new vibe from Karen Millen.

    Being in the gang of only a handful of stores on the high street who have their own in-house design atelier, Karen Millen should be on your radar for many reasons.

    Unlike most high street stores, Karen Millen’s atelier is based in their London head office, and all pieces are designed and hand crafted to create ultra-luxe pieces, that feel far more expensive than their affordable price tag.

    This season look out for stylish seperates that you need in your wardrobe, from satin trench coats to dark denim flares, and the ultimate day-to-night dress that will take you easily from boardroom to bar.

    The whole collection has a sutble 70s vibe, that should you not have taken on the trend yet, you might be tempted by this lot.

    Look out for suede, fringing, mid-length dresses and pussy bow details. And if wearing the trend top-to-toe is a step too far, these are all details that will give a update to your look without looking like a 70s throwback. Colours to consider from the new collection are chocolate, tomato red and black, tapping into the modern gothic trend and getting your wardrobe ready for the impending chilly weather.

    Our favourite pieces include the 70’s-style skinny zip-up polo neck,  the pretty white lace Victoriana-inspired blouse and the blanket cape.

    But its not just coats and tailoring at Karen Millen, the accessories are always on our must have list too. This season, it’s all about a chunky biker boot, a classic style that’s harder than you think to find on the high street. Peep toe high heel shoe boots, perfect to edge up your office look, and fringed bags a plenty.
