Karen Walker



New Zealand-born Karen Walker has been successful stateside with her brand of quirky casual sportswear, appealing to a creative customer with a cheeky sense of humor. This playful eye never strays too far into cartoon territory, but achieves a feminine focus with short, layered silhouettes and lean yet comfortable trousers. For S/S 10, Walker explored the idea of an Edwardian seaside resort, expressed with witty nautical motifs and red, gray and blue beachball dots. Accessorized with colorful boat shoes and deep-crowned straw cloches, Walker proved there is always new inspiration to be found in spring’s perennial sailor theme.
