Karen Walker Womenswear A/W10

The New Zealand Designer imagines an American take on Alp dressing.

Karen Walker has always been the girl to go to for clothes with a distinct setting and this time, it's Salzberg, USA, an imaginary place where American classics outdoor wear get given vaguely Swiss Alps twists. A faded floral puffa jacket and matching trousers that opens the show sets the tone for the rest of the collection. The prints that ensued all had an upholstery quality that played off well with the casual flippy skirts, sweatshirts and trouser suits all given outdoor-nudging details like sheepskin linings and toggles. Dressier highlights included a wavy sculpted dress in iridescent blue.
