Will Karen Millen watches complement new leather gilet

First published: 19-07-2010

Karen Millen watches may be the perfect accompaniment to the new leather gilet designed by budding young designer Fflur Owen.

In a post on the fashion label's blog, Ms Owen explained what was so special about her new piece of clothing.

She said: "This shrunken washed leather gilet with exaggerated collar is the ultimate piece to finish any outfit!

"Each gilet goes through a complicated process of washing the leather to create a slightly different finish and shape insuring each piece is individual."

Ms Owen added that the washing process has a different effect on each piece of leather, which makes each one unique, while also adding an element of risk to the design progress.

She explained that this was because leather was a natural fibre and therefore "extremely difficult to control".

Earlier this month, the Karen Millen creative director Gemma Metheringham suggested that sportswear will be a hit this summer - a look undoubtedly well complemented by a sporty Karen Millen watch.
