Karen Millen F/W 2014 Fashion Show

Jocelyn YihCentral Central

Since the death of the old HMV store in Central, I haven't visited this space for a while. It's weird how only a few years ago, aisles and aisles of CDs, DVDs (and let's not forget about VCDs) would fill up the place; and now it's all converted to a large atrium of eight international fashion brands. So if you're thinking upmarket pieces but not crazy luxury, then this place is perfect. When people ask me what Central Central is, I simply say it's the older sister of Lab Concept. They stock brands including Nine West, Steve Madden and Betsey Johnson. And for this season, Karen Millen has more colour than I expected. I think the Karen Millen 'woman' is in her 30s and her wardrobe is divided between things she wears to the office and things to wear over the weekend. So for the weekdays, she'd wear formal above-the-knee length dresses with subtle prints; mostly in monochrome because she wants to keep her outfits neat and tidy. But over the weekends, she'd pick the more colourful pieces like printed coats to walk around the city; maybe even a red leather jacket for a night out. Since it is fall/winter, she'd compliment  the outfits with black leather boots. Then in the evening, she'd hop onto the plane to New York for a business trip with her knitted jumper and black leather backpack. And she'll never leave her hotel for a night out without her 'glitter box clutch'. She might not be sophisticated, but definitely sensible and dresses right for every occasion. Special thanks to the HK Karen Millen team, HK photo box, and Venus for inviting me to the show and gifts. Click on the description box below every picture for more details.
