A PORTRAIT OF AUTUMN | WINTER 17
09 Feb 2017
Starring Eleanor Tomlinson, Judith Hill and Karolina Kurkova, the Autumn Winter 17 campaign is the third in a series of compelling portraits that capture the personalities of our cast styled by Cathy Kasterine and shot by Yelena Yemchuk in the heart of London
The series of portraits are at once both intimate and intriguing; capturing three real women at different moments both singly and together as they move confidently around a Georgian house and interact, giving the women and the images a sense of time and place. The house offers a rich tapestry of colour and texture that adds a painterly quality to the imagery and there is a film which effectively brings the stills to life by showcasing the eclectic characters in the campaign.
For Autumn Winter 17, Karen Millen continued to develop the idea of individuality through three diverse personalities that speak to women all over the world. Individual style is at the heart of the brand and in the next evolutionary installment, the KM designers bring a fresh playfulness, eclecticism, and refinement to the most beautifully crafted clothes.
Frills, ruffles, lace, brocades, florals, velvets and faux fur: this is a season of confident femininity, textural richness, with a focus on intense autumnal hues of cinnamon, teal, midnight navy, terracotta, claret, tan and berry red. Working wardrobes see hints of sportswear coming through in bomber styles and striped details, while dresses for after dark have never been more romantic. The KM woman’s playful side is brought to the fore with feisty leopard accents, bold floral prints, and vintage references. Wherever she is, she is all woman.
