I don’t usually write about runway shows, but I’ll make an exception for Karen Walker at New York Fashion Week. Karen Walker is one of (if not the) biggest name in New Zealand fashion, and almost synonymous with our little industry. I’m always eager to know what Karen Walker is rolling out in the next season, and I wasn’t disappointed by her spring show ‘Perfect Day.’
Karen Walker always seems to find something for everyone, we see a mixture of party dresses, man blazers and work pants, quirky t-shirts, smart shirts, and fashion forward statement pieces for those that are so-inclined. Season-to-season there’s always something by Karen Walker that’s caught my eye.
‘Perfect Day’ is bright and colourful, with staple prints and loud pops of colour in the flavour of orange, yellow and blue. Paying attention to detail, the bows on the belts, girlie hates and great clutches give this collection the perfect amount of playful femininity.
These are a few of my favourite looks from the show. I wanted to post nearly all of them because each look is nearly as eye-catching as the last. I’ve been well and truly fascinated. Thank you KW, I look forward to this collections appearance in store early next year.
The print on the right (below) is my favourite from this collection. Soft and feminine, with subtle ruffles. I could wear that all through summer and refuse to take it off come winter.
I’ve also never felt so strongly about mustard…
Let me just talk about the SHOES for a minute. Gorgeous, aren’t they? The two on the left are Beau Coups. New Zealand’s best in footware meets New Zealand’s best in clothes. Perfect match. I’m not too sure who’s designed those on the right, but are they a creeper? a platform? a loafer? Some mix of the three? I love it!
Update! I found full size images of the Beau Coops in Karen Walker’s show, gorgeous aren’t they?
