Karen Walker’s eccentrically elegant style has established a cult international following. Defined by her signature energy and optimism, her designs cleverly play with cultural subtext, juxtaposing luxe and street, masculine and feminine, folk and utility to create pieces that are both directional and wearable. Alexa Chung, Rihanna and Gigi Hadid all count themselves amongst the formidable roster of stylish clientele.
New Zealand-born designer Karen Walker celebrates the anti-It-girl: 1930s comic book super-heroines leading double lives, the debauched prom queen who sneaks out after curfew to run with the bad crowd, Ally Sheedy's character in The Breakfast Club. Using the outsider as inspiration, Karen Walker accessories blur the lines between chic and street, luxury and non-luxury, dark and super-cute. Her collection of statement sunglasses and jewelry embodies an alternative blend of not-trying-too-hard cool.
