New York: For autumn/winter 2015/16, Karen Walker continued to have a retro sensibility but with a modern edge. Models wore denim jumpsuits, polo dresses, and flare pant suits with rugged contrasting cleated sole boots, booties, and Mary Janes. The bold color palette of blues and greens paired back to black, brown, and gold for 70s aesthetic. Print mixing was modernized by mixing retro geos with dark grounded florals, or linear plaids with psychedelic swirls. -Jaclyn Jones
