To celebrate the timeless appeal of the classic white shirt, Karen Millen have created a capsule collection of this all-time closet classic. Designed in the Karen Millen atelier, the iconic brand have added a fresh aesthetic by including frills, pleats, bows & flares in their new designs. To showcase my favourites from the range, I was invited by my friends at Karen Millen to film this video around my hometown of Melbourne. An iconic collection in an iconic city, I hope you enjoy it!
I have always been a huge fan of the white shirt & these new designs are no exception. It’s one of the most versatile yet elegant pieces you can have in your wardrobe & an absolute staple. I love the introduction of volume, bows & clean shapes into this collection, which have reinvented an everyday hero. Each impeccable piece has been designed & hand-crafted by the incredibly talented Karen Millen team of designers in London. My favourite? The bell sleeved shirt. The slim line silhouette is super flattering and I just love the flared detail in the arms.
Up for a fun fact? The Karen Millen white shirt tradition (& the actual brand itself) was started when she began manufacturing them for herself which were so popular it led to requests from friends! The popularity of her handmade shirts grew, so with a £100 loan she purchased one thousand metres of white cotton & began creating white shirts. The rest, as they say, is history!
