While perusing Adam's latest collection, someone noticed the striking similarity between this tunic and a Karen Walker piece from...two years ago. They're pretty much identical--the flower shape in the lace is slightly different (Walker's is prettier), but everything else - the color, the silhouette, the buttons, the tiers in the middle, the collar--is exactly the same. This doesn't look good, Mr. Lippes.
Karen Walker Makes Ordinary Extraordinary
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.
