New York: This season Karen Walker was influenced by Britain’s gardens post WWII through the 70’s. The mixture between pattern and utility was transparent within the collection with botanical florals, smocks, dungarees, and headscarves layered below oversized straw hats. Scarves and accessory patterns matched the apparel, bringing a whole new meaning to matching sets.-Jaclyn Jones
