A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that Marion and Lindie would be closing shop in SA & when I walked by what was the Sandton City store a little while back, I saw this…
Karen Millen started out in 1981 with a £100 loan (so the story goes) & is undoubtedly one of the most successful British designers available in 380 stores across 50 countries today. Known for having 12 collections every season we can look forward to apparel, footwear, accessories, jewellery and swimwear with new items promised to be coming into the Joburg store weekly!
Described as “accessible luxury” in SA Karen Millen will trade as part of the Busby Group (Guess, Aldo, Nine West etc.) with worldwide flagship stores that include London, New York Hong Kong, Paris and now Johannesburg!
Here’s a look at some pieces that caught my eye:
Signature cotton peplum dress R 2 450
Snake print swim suit R 1 050Animal print pony court R 1 960 Signature leather large bowler R 3 150.
These are definitely investment pieces, hoping I can save up for one or two. PS pricing of course remains to be seen, I’ve just converted against current exchange rates to give a ball park.
Karen Millen will be at Shop U11, Sandton City Shopping Centre, Corner Rivonia Rd & 5th St, Sandton, 2196 & opens mid-May.
