Designed, finessed and finished at Karen Millen's in-house atelier, each piece in the Essentials collection has been precisely cut and measured to sculpt your figure and elevate your confidence. This is modern workwear, done your way.
The Forever Dress
Meet the dress for every wardrobe, for every occasion, forever.
Precision cut, with every seam, dart and contour expertly considered, The Forever Dress works wonders in enhancing the figure. Its pattern was drawn and hand-cut in our atelier, before being hand toiled and cut from cloth. Seams on the front and back sculpt the silhouette, and a leather belt cinches the waist and highlights an hourglass shape. A Queen Anne collar showcases the collarbone with a refined and elegant neckline.
The Forever Trench
Designed, refined and cut at our in-house atelier, our iconic trench coat is the ultimate investment piece. It’s crafted from a premium cotton, offering lightness and durability, and features a versatile, removable waist belt for multiple styling options. Finishing touches include a concealed hem, finished by hand to ensure every stitch is perfectly placed, and expertly designed seams to ensure the coat fits like a glove.
The Forever Trousers
These are the most flattering trousers you’ll ever own.
Crafted from the finest Italian fabric, they feature a special in-built corset-effect band, which holds you in at the waist, skims the stomach and perfects your figure, no matter your size or shape. Leatherette detailing adds a subtle finish, while an ankle-grazing length elongates the legs. Such is the confidence-boosting magic of these trousers, you’ll never want to take them off – good job they work for almost every date in your diary, then.
