Born from eccentricity and whimsy, Karen Walker dresses work for a multiplicity of occasions from formal to fun. Party dresses, workwear, cocktail, denim frocks and t-shirt dresses, not to mention fantastical maxi-length dresses, proper silk gowns, chic little black dresses to long skating gowns. Elegant draping is an essential to many midi-length hems, A-line divine, or buoyant and froufrou mini dresses cut playfully above-the-knee. The signature boxy fit allows for room to move or celebrate silhouette with waist cinching tailoring. Try a twist on the wrap dress with an au fait knot at the waist, or zip-it-up to the collar and notch a bow at your neck. Sleeves play with dimensions from lengthy and form-fitting to puffed clouds nipped in by bell cuffs, buoyant heavenwards shoulders, starchy boardroom cuffs and summer loving cropped sleeves. Pockets at the waist are a given. Prints please, Karen Walker florals bloom, galaxy glitter, key print mosaics and oh-so delightful cherubs or pick a block colour, the bolder the better. Smart suiting and luxury 100% silk crêpe de Chine take commonplace, alongside recycled chiffon, lightweight linen, easy cotton, fairy-tale organza and breezy cotton voile.
