High Street Pick of the Week
Inspired by the women in the photographs of Guy Bourdin is the selling spiel of the latest dress offerings from Karen Millen. Now I don't want to blather on about Guy's mother fixation and why but in reality there was only ever one woman in his photographs and this recreation of a child's view of a glamorous woman haunted his brilliant photos.
Still one can't find fault for a high street chain raiding an archive rich in texture and colour for their inspiration. It seems £150 is the price point (ahem) to compete with for your money on a luxurious dress for the season.
