Thanks to the latest creative collaboration between models, beauty artists, designers and photographers, Karen Millen’s Fall/Winter 2014 campaign proves to be a stunning form of pure fashionable vision. There are no dark angles or boudoirs of half-naked models here. Instead, models are placed front and center onto completely empty backgrounds, so that the clothes and their beauty really shine through. Using four models that haven’t reached a global scale just yet, Karen Millen’s clothes do not just stand out, but instantly bring our attention to the little details, as well.
Karen Millen’s new collection combines femininity and rock, focusing on fabrics and textures to create a more youthful look in fashion. Brining together tailored tweeds and buttery leathers into coats, and knit and lace into jackets; Karen Millen’s pieces are not just demure and elegant like her previous pieces proved to be. Although the mixed textiles and the details are attractive at first sight, it is the sharp female tailoring that really makes the clothing stand out. These multi-dimensional pieces have a real impact on Karen Millen’s new models, as well, and with the empty backgrounds, every design is given new life altogether.
David Bailey is the photographer of Karen Millen’s latest models. In the past, he has shot famous celebrities, like The Beatles and Mick Jagger. This time, his images of Karen Millen’s models are simple yet beautiful, effectively bringing out the model’s purity, as well as that of the designs. Launching brand new faces Grace Gao, Nur Hellmann, Kirsi Pyhonen and Karlina Caune, Karen Caune, Karen Millen hopes to give them the platform that they need to rise in the industry. Karen Millen has always supported new talents, innovators and artistry in the field with hopes of reaching out to newer generations by nurturing the future artists of fashion through her designs.
