Hot off the press! One half of the Miller powerhouse duo has decided to go it alone in the fashion stakes by unveiling her very first solo collection to be named simply “Savannah”. While many may have mourned the end of Twenty8Tweleve, and begrudgingly waved goodbye to the laid back leathers, cool cuts and simple silhouettes, which had all become somewhat signature looks for the Miller sisters, Savannah Miller’s debut collection offers a whole new take on the former brand’s carefree and easy-to-wear style.
Savannah Miller first earned her fashion stripes while studying a BA honours in Fashion and Knitwear at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins University, graduating with a first class degree. Back then using her increasingly famous sister Sienna Miller to model her creations,she went on to work on fashion line Twenty8Twelve,which ran for 12 consecutive seasons, before announcing earlier in February that she would be going it alone.
Savannah has stayed true to form boasting an array of cute dresses, (as seen on Model Dree Hemingway,left) clean cut blazers and throw on knitwear while just a hint of sparkle nods towards those vital eveningwear pieces. The key purpose of this range is to provide a capsule collection of everyday wardrobe essentials for the “21st century girl“.
The new brand logo is a lone swallow (interestingly a symbol Sienna already has inked on her wrist). The reason behind her choice is simple; swallows are said to nest only in houses of love. Coincidentally this is a theme which ties in perfectly with the brand’s carefree, versatile appearance.
The Autumn Winter range is set to launch on October 25,2012 -only a matter of days away- and will be sold exclusively on Nelly.com. Price points will stretch from £20 up to £175.95. Savannah has already given a hint of what she has up her sleeve come next season. “Expect to see more clothing, swimwear and the introduction of footwear”, she says.
