Karen Millen: Capsule collection of white shirts

28 Aug 2017

To celebrate the timeless appeal of this closet classic, we’ve created a capsule collection of white shirts for Spring/Summer ‘17, designed in our London atelier.

Ruffles, volume, sleeves, pleats and pussybows; just a few of the details that reinvent this classic silhouette in our collection of impeccable white shirts. Exploring new-season proportions such as laid-back boyfriend shapes, oversized frills and body-sculpting designs, each clean and crisp piece has been designed and hand-crafted by our team of garment technicians and designers at our in-house atelier in east London. Stand-out pieces include The Super Frill Shirt, a ruffled, super-feminine blouse with a pretty pussy-bow tie, and The Classic Twist Shirt, an oversized boyfriend shirt with a button-down back and tie sleeves.

Each unique shirt has been designed at our atelier based in the heart of London. They have been intricately crafted from premium cotton and airy, lightweight fabrics for a polished and super sharp finish

In the making

A little known fact - Karen Millen’s journey began when our eponymous founder invested £100 in 1000 metres of white cotton and began crafting sleek white shirts for her friends.

Meet the trailblazers 

We’ve teamed up with a Melbourne and a Sydney based fashion authorities to launch the collection in the market. Lisa from SEE WANT SHOP styled the shirts in the iconic Melbourne Lanes and Talisa from BADLANDS showed her style in the breathtaking Sydney.

We have also teamed up with three international fashion authorities to showcase our collection, creating a series of beautiful videos and photography in the world’s most fashion-forward cities with Parisian blogger Camille Charriere’; London-based presenter and chef Laura Jackson; and New York fashion and lifestyle writer Jeanne Grey of popular blog ‘Grey Layers’. Showing our clients how to style their white shirt, these fashion trailblazers have created video content and beautiful photography to illustrate their styling expertise.

The collection will launch in September in store at Karen Millen Chatswood Chase Sydney.

Karen Millen is located on Level One.
