From attending Wimbledon in Dolce & Gabbana yellow to picking out pretty pussy-bow florals from Prada, K.Mid’s very British closet is filled out with super-luxury brands from across the world. Whether printed wrap dress or off-the-shoulder gown, this woman's catalogue is astounding—keep reading to see what we mean, and to shop similar versions for yourself.
