Colour stands out for autumn, with great customer service a key feature in this store.
Bright colour and detail are plentiful in Karen Millen this season, from fuchsia and orange through to chartreuse and cobalt blue, but there are few new silhouettes on offer to attract anyone other than the retailer’s loyal shoppers. Karen Millen’s take on the grey shift features buttons down the side and an asymmetric flared hem, showing an individuality to justify its prices, while cape coats and panelled blazers are the best outerwear offerings.
Karen Millen dedicates nearly half of its main floor to discounted stock while new season product is
confined to the lower floor. The shop assistant split Drapers’ changing room choices into casual tops and jeans and dressy eveningwear for ease of trying on – a nice touch.
Fine knitwear with frilled sleeves just about justifies a £90 price tag, while a 100% merino batwing top in black with grey panels and yellow sleeves is
better coming in at just under £100. Versace-inspired half zips are here on a vest along with ruffles to justify the £50 price.
