Karen Walker Fall Winter-2011-2012.Karen Walker updated those references nicely. A key motif was black vinyl detailing, which added an industrial edge to wallpaper floral-print blouses and girly pleated skirts, and gave a graphic touch to Walker’s pop-color coats. There were ultra-feminine “Sunday best” frocks, like a timeless bias-cut chiffon, and two standout pairs of mannish trousers, one high-waisted with a gentle wide-leg silhouette, the other skinny, cropped, and cuffed. The clothes looked easy and modern, and the inspiration was never too overt, with the exception of the print Walker derived from the souvenir patches the Northern soul-sters used to collect. Inspired by working a class dance club in Northern England, Wigan Casino (where the dock workers went to boogie for the weekend), Walker’s peachy aesthetic received a touch of edge. The palette was considerably less saturated than most Walker showings, with black, navy, grey, dusty rose, and white as the main color way, plus added hints of teal, cobalt, orange and red towards the show’s end.Karen Walker Fashion Autumn Winter 2011-2012..For more info. visit : Karen Walker ..
