I woke up with a bounce this morning…even though it’s Day 6 of NYC Fashion Week…(ooh la la…my aching feet! ) It was the morning of the Karen Walker show! I went to Karen’s atelier and showroom in Auckland, New Zealand earlier this year…and I must humbly say, I’m her biggest fan! She blends graphic color, optimistic prints, humor and fun into every collection. She is known for her oversized and unique sunglasses, which she sells at Barneys NY. The audience is almost as fun as the collection itself…the hippest cowgirls in town. Japanamation mixed with Alice in Wonderland. This is Karen’s trademark!
This season’s daywear and sportswear collection featured floral patterns and prints in shades of grey, taupe, sage, peach and blush and wild solid graphic punches of bright color in orange, yellow and blue. The perfect nail for the theme: ‘A Perfect Day’….alternating between ‘Silver Chrome’ followed by ‘Putty’ and ‘AirDry’ for a reflective whitish nail and the other half of the models had ‘Desert Suede’ and ‘Cheeky’, shined with ‘Air Dry’ for a pinkie, nude, healthy nail.
