Special Dish VIP Sale: Store-y Book Ending

Once upon a time in summer 2007, in the faraway Kingdom of Kowloon, there was an empty plot of land, which was said to be magical, in that it would soon miraculously turn into a huge luxurious complex (including 2 mega-hotels, a giant office building and a very handsome princely mall).  Back on the island, there were many girls, practically dressed in rags, cooking and cleaning and cowering in the cinders (well, that might be a slight exaggeration!) waiting for this charming establishment to be built so they could be released from the prison-like conditions of their current closets. When suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared in the form of British high street boutique Karen Millen, and with a flick of her wand replaced last season’s wardrobe mishaps with the latest of the label’s sophisticated chic must-haves. At once, these newly made-over princesses set off on fabulous adventures and became the belles of the ball at the most glamorous events in the city. But the tale doesn’t end there…Flash forward to today where the time has come for you to make your own enchanting, head-turning entrance. So squeeze into those glass slippers, summon your coach and head over to Hong Kong’s one-and-only Karen Millen at Elements mall. After a magical wardrobe transformation we’re certain you’ll leave your audience spellbound, just make sure you’re home before midnight!

Fit for a Princess
After dressing London’s glamour girls for decades, at last Britain’s beloved Karen Millen has come to grace our waters. This chicly modern boutique is filled with the designer’s sought after iconic collections, which focus on well-made pieces that transcend the seasons. Karen Millen’s designs are feminine, flirty and fun, yet versatile enough to take you from power meetings at the office to cocktails in the club.  Indulge in the label’s signature knits, coats, and eveningwear in beautiful fabrics and immaculate finishes, which are sure to bring out your inner princess (no matter how long it’s been since you’ve last seen her!).

From the Castle to the City
With the summer sun finally upon us, it’s time to lighten up, and that includes your wardrobe.  Karen Millen’s spring/summer collection introduces sheer bliss with everything from vibrant blouses to dramatic trench dresses to voluminous skirts in transparent organza and chiffon. On weekends, emerge in casually chic, yet richly toned neutrals, a silk satin dove grey blouse with short kimono sleeves layered with a white and tan fine knit wrap cardigan and an oversized grey patent tote slung over your shoulder.  Evening calls for Greek goddess-like frills, a tiered fine silk jersey dress in emerald green or a black mini-dress with ornate flowers climbing the dramatic halter-neckline. Derive inspiration for your next adventure from the designer’s fresh take on safari-chic, an oyster shirt-dress with roomy pockets, a tan belt with tribal silver studding and wooden wedge sandals in cream or brown should fit perfectly in your summer suitcase.

Dream Come True
