Everything begins on 8th September in our Regent Street flagship store, we’ll then escape the temperamental English weather by hopping across the pond to Southern Europe for scorching sun in Lisbon and Madrid, then we’ll wrap up warm (in our perfect newly launched fur collar capes and over the knee boots) for events in New York and Moscow oh, and of course, we’ll check our coat in and throw on a pair of sunglasses when we hit LA!
If all this jet setting wasn’t enough excitement for you, we’re thrilled to announce two very special competitions in London, Madrid and New York.
The infamous unlocked boxes are back! If you don’t know about them, read on…
In each location there’ll be a locked box, that only one key will open! The first few clients through the door, before picking up a cocktail and a grabbing one of our new launches, will be given a special key. If you’re key unlocks the box, you will win our special limited edition woven bag! Sold out almost everywhere and featured in all the glossies, this bag is on the wish lists of every Fashion Editor and you could be going home with it!

In each city our high profile photographers, including Tim Griffiths in London and WireImage in New York, will be on hand to capture the night’s events. After you’ve received your perfect campaign make-over from our team and had a glamorous consultation with our stylists take a walk in your perfect outfit and get snapped in front of our very special Karen Millen step and repeat.
