For spring / summer 2016, Karen Millen further develops the idea of individuality through three diverse personalities that have their roots in Britain – just like our London-based atelier – but speak to women all over the world. The Karen Millen woman is universal, as is her strong but smiling sense of style.

 Our carefully curated range of accessories has been developed with the above themes in mind. Aspirational, everyday working bags in ‘bucket’ or handbag form are individualised with chunky tassels and their urban footwear counterparts are equally sleek with open-toed perforated leather shoe-boots and midi-heeled suede sandals with a generous ankle cuff. Our Brompton bag is also city smart for day or night, it has been reinterpreted this season with a flash of patent and a fine silver chain, and comes in cobalt and orange. As with our womenswear, our accessories also compliment the season’s general softening-up: note our big slouchy bags in deep tan and navy. Fringing, another personalised element, features on our Portobello bag and cool suede boots. And as for the season’s nostalgic romance, when it comes to high summer, who can resist cork heels and raffia wedges?
