Karen's Fall 2006

When Vogue set up 4 pages worth' of image-coverage you know it's got to be special. Not synonymous with glamorous, but essential enough to provide that sought after space in the fashion world, that usually comes down to well-deserved recognition. When Karen Walker has showcased in the past we've seen a limited space of 2, sometimes 3 pages. For Fall 2006, Karen is up there with media coverage we'd only expect after a Marc Jacobs show.

Brought up in the 80's listening to music such as The Smiths, Adam and the Ants, and Cyndi Lauper, we simply adore this type of retro-trip. Fold your trousers in a funny way, mix stripy, polka dot and plain, wear brightly coloured thick scarves, weird socks in platforms, and shapeless short jackets. Steal one of dad's ties, borrow your boyfriend's cardigan, and remember there's nothing funkier than skinny pants.... A trip down memory lane is always a good one. A meeting with Molly Ringwald, Nena and Human League is just the added bonus.

Ah, the '80s. Nostalgia is nice, but let's leave the shoulder pads in the Reagan years!
