With William Eggleston’s photographs and a clothespin silk print as starting points, Karen Walker presented another fantastic collection for SS11.
Looking at the beauty of mundane objects, Walker created effortless, wearable looks that made even the grouchiest New Yorker wish for summer’s breezy days. From sherbet colored, pajama inspired ensembles to gray tees with pop-colored full skirts, every look was uplifting. The feeling was of the ’60s, but not the uptown stuff you’re used to seeing on Mad Men; Walker’s looks were better suited for weekends bonfires set to Pet Sounds and Revolver.
Topping off the sunny collection were ruffled bucket hats, and down below were loafers with a twist. And just in case it rains on your beach day, there were Tyvek raincoats with sweet ruffle details. SS11′s never looked so happy.
