Lace once again continued to be a key theme in the collections but this time around got bolder with heavy embroidered lace in daisy yellow and white a-line minis (an affordable alternative to the Chanel numbers I’ve had my eyes on!) Geometric dot lace was cut into sporty tees in black or white, bringing a sense of ease and modernity to the collection. Elsewhere demure lace shifts in old gold or deep claret are cut with deep V necklines and flattering black pencil skirts.
In 2005 Karen Millen designed and placed on sale in Ireland a striped shirt (in a blue and a brown version) and a black knit top. Examples of those garments were purchased by Dunnes representatives, and Dunnes put copies of the garments on sale in its Irish stores in 2006. Karen Millen took action against Dunnes, claiming that its rights in unregistered Community designs for three items of clothing had been infringed.
The thing I adore most about Karen Millen designs are their ability to shape, tuck and nip the female form into perfection!
