Karen Millen Autumn Winter 2013 Campaign heralds a bold new direction for KM, working with iconic photographer & artist, David Bailey, and fashion visionary, Katy England. The campaign, captured by Bailey, has resulted in a beautiful series of portraits featuring four new model faces. Karlina Caune, Kirsi Pyrhonen, Nur Hellmann and Grace Gao.
During his ground-breaking career, Bailey has photographed some of the world’s most famous faces. His early work defined the Swinging Sixties, ultimately because he discarded the rigid rules of previous fashion and portrait photography and created a new style of casual coolness. His photographs channeled the energy of London’s street culture and he made stars of a new generation of models such as Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. As a portraitist, Bailey was one of the first photographers to gain the same celebrity as some of the people he photographed. Mick Jagger, Michael Caine and The Beatles all posed for him.
