Karen Millen Spring Summer 2013 Preview

Karen Millen Spring Summer 2013 is all about casual tailoring, clean lines, bold prints and interesting textures.

The collection includes structured shift dresses, sleek biker jackets, slim trousers in graphic and floral prints, washed leather jackets and sheer shirts with embellished collars.  The structured dresses are ideal for keeping cool and looking smart.

One of my favourites is a Balenciaga-esque polka dot zip-front jacquard dress with a bubble-shaped skirt.  I also love the simple white lace and bead-covered v-neck dress, which would be perfect for sundown cocktails in the summer.

The sharp jackets can go from day to night and the embellished collars instantly add an interesting touch to an outfit.

The accessories collection features simple, structured, well-made bags in soft leather, suede, pony and mock ostrich.  The mock ostrich iPhone covers in black, tan and vibrant yellow are sophisticated and would make a great gift.

Pointed toe court shoes with slim heels are the shape of the season and I am absolutely in love with the black and white pony heels…and the two-tone cream and black shoes.
