Karen Walker: Autumn/Winter 07/08

For a designer who reportedly designs clothes for outsider women, the Kiwi designer’s view on the “anti-it girl look” is as bizarrely fashionable as any hyped-up Marc Jacobs’ show. We’ve reported on Karen Walker before, and yet again, we’ve nothing but praise to give to this talented woman.

For autumn/winter 07/08 Karen Walker had a number of key elements in mind; tailored tweed, thick woollen coats, neck warmers in bright colours and casually worn berets. While the best part of this collection came down to earthy, muddy tones we loved the introduction of contrasting colours that add to the effortless, ‘accidental’ look that Karen does so well. In keeping with the
unpretentious theme, her collection featured contrasts throughout the show: masculine and feminine, tailored and baggy, luxury and street-smart, dark and super cute.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that the style press love Karen. What does surprise us on the contrary, is that it’s only Walker’s second season in New York.
