Karen Walker Spring 2010

Posted in:

Karen Walker Spring 2010

Karen Walker’s paranoia is paying off. Her Spring/Summer ’10 collection is inspired by an island full of retired spies, referencing the plot of 1960’s British television show, The Prisoner. The collection has a laid-back resort feeling, with most of the models sporting loafers. Yet, everything was slightly askew. The beginning of the show offered unassumingly feminine dresses with ruffles, tiered hemlines, and drawstring bows. But then, those basic seaside colors of white and navy were offset by psychedelic fabrics. Swarms of seagulls, overzealous sailboat flags, and acid-trip florals popped out from behind the catwalk corners. Not trusting the calm and anticipating the storm, Walker had many flattering options for raingear (no small feat) from mini-trenches to parachute ponchos.

Walker’s accessories, as usual, were making surf-friendly waves. Her hats reached exaggerated heights, which would have likely garnered Stephen Jones’ blessing. Her sunglasses collection continued to rock the boat, with tortoise-shell tea shades that were more Gilligan’s Island than 007. Her bags mostly consisted of totes: striped, dotted, and printed, which easily complimented each other and could be carried together. One model breezily brought three down the runway one-handed.

Karen Walker’s entire line is wearable, for those looking to be casual and those looking to be conspicuous. Why she has a cult following is no secret. However, be warned. When wearing Karen Walker, leave any dreams of being a spy behind. It’s impossible to go unnoticed.
