Karen Millen launches their Spring Summer'13 Campaign with Amber Le Bon as the new Face of Karen MIllen!!!

Monday, February 04, 2013


As my regular readers will know, Karen Millen is probably my favourite brand, rarely am I seen out of the house in something that isn't from their brand! What I personally love about Karen Millen is that they're a "designer fashion brand dedicated to dressing glamorous, confident women in polished, fun and feminine clothes".

Some people like to dress in a street style, others feel more comfortable in casual looks......I on the other hand love to maintain a highly groomed, polished and glamorous look! The highly groomed women of Milan, and the polished girls from the Upper East Side in New York, are my fashion Muses! Karen Millen produce "unique designs with the focus on attention to detail and beautiful fabrics.....(their) garments are perfectly cut to make our customers feel confident, beautiful, glamorous and sexy". As someone who has worn their garments for many years, I can certainly say their clothes make me feel "Confident, beautiful, glamorous and sexy"!!

Therefore it was with great anticipation that I waited to see who Karen Millen would reveal as their new face of their Spring Summer 13 Campaign!!

For this new season Karen Millen has focused on creating contemporary collections that are pared-down yet confident, and this has been reflected in the feminine yet resolutely modern creative for the Spring Summer 13 campaign starring none other than Amber Le Bon!!

Amber is the eldest daughter of iconic model Yasmin Le Bon and her husband Simon Le Bon, lead singer of the legendary group Duran Duran. Not only has she shot for many of the international Vogue titles as well as style publications such as Tank, she also has had the privilage to work with some of the worlds leading photographers including Phil Poynter, Anders Overgaard, Rankin and Bryan Adams!

"We look for someone confident with a strong personality to be the face of our seasonal campaign. We chose Amber as not only is she very beautiful, she is also highly creative and dedicates some of her time to high profile charity work. This interesting blend embodies the modern confident spirit of the Karen Millen woman".

." - Gemma Metheringham, Managing and Creative Director of Karen Millen.

Having looked at both the new campaign images as well as the Spring Summer 13 Campaign video, I cannot think of anyone better suited to represent the new collection!!

There is a clean simplicity to Spring Summer 13 with the emphasis being firmly on modern, urban pieces. Multi-layered rather than thematic, the collection spans soft fluid volume to crisp tailoring, subtle futuristic embellishment to streamlined sportswear, Sixties modernist influences to Japanese-inspired silhouettes.

This SS'13 is going to be the season of separates and the jacket is key to creating statement yet versatile looks. Stand-out pieces range from a yellow tweed biker, floral brocade jacket and eau de nil fluid Cupro suit jacket to the cherished Karen Millen signature leather biker in fresh summer colour bursts of neon yellow and bold coral. The Biker and the Soft Suit Jacket are the main silhouettes and they have imaginatively re-invented both in fresh colours and fluid fabrics.

Just as I do in my own styling, Karen Millen is making the dress is the foundation garment on which to build your looks this Spring Summer, from statement colour-block peplum styles in modernist hues to ultimate monochrome body-con in on-trend satin. To sum up the season - The dress does the work, the jacket makes the statement.

Karen Millen pride themselves in offering accessible luxury and attainable design whilst maintaining the brands instantly recognisable effortless glamour, signature fit and attention to detail, ensuring that Karen Millen is the go-to destination for stylish investment pieces around the world, whether it is for immaculately tailored work-wear, a distinctive dress or a sumptuous leather jacket.

Having already had the chance to look through Karen Millen's "Style File" look book for the coming months, I can confirm the collection contains many "must have" pieces, and something tells me as my "WishList" grows.......my bank Balance will be dropping big time!!
