Just as your late summer boredom is setting in, the Karen Millen flagship throws open its brand-new doors on Fifth Avenue to cure a shopping rut. Originally set to debut in June, the boutique's first day of business is set for Wednesday, August 6th, with a sweet spot neighboring that massive H&M.
The British womenswear and accessories line has experienced a significant transformation as of late, and the new flagship reflects the brand's revamped aesthetic, which features a high-low mix of trend-driven styles. Karen Millen partnered with Brinkworth to develop an interior design plan that evokes this new direction.
The store boasts over 5,000 square feet, including an adaptable space for pop-up concepts and events. Millen previously had a Soho store at 114 Prince Street.—Mina Shaghaghi
Update: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated that the Prince Street store is still operating.
