We can't wait to 'escape' with Karen Walker's new collection!
We're wanting to fast forward time to February 2018 already just to get our hands on Karen Walker's newest offering!
New Zealand's own Karen Walker never fails to impress with her eye for interesting silhouettes, awesome fabrics and stand-out prints. The Escapism Collection, to be released February 2018, is no exception. Hot on the heels of KW's oh-so-awesome mash of hip-hop and Marie Antoinette for the Resort collection, comes another eclectic yet classic brainchild that we're already drooling over!
KW channels two very different vibes for Escapism, and hot damn, who knew they'd look so good together?! The fabulous lady adventurers of the Victorian era meet Mary Poppins, to create clothes that inspire every lady to embark on wonderful, well-dressed adventures of her own.
Feel fab in Victorian pouf sleeves, natty little buttons, flounces, frills and high collars, combined with silhouettes easy to explore in; baby-doll dresses, baggy jeans, jogging shorts and loose pants. Channel your lady explorer in olive twill and masculine tailoring, throw in some magical Mary Poppins-esque feminine prints and revel in KW's usual unique eccentricity with rad monkey prints.
This makes us want to escape to far-flung unexplored jungles armed with twill jacket, compass and a flying umbrella, then brunch amongst luscious foliage while bathing in our friends' jealousy because Karen Walker, as always, will have us looking fabulous with 'Escapism'.
Bring on February!! Check out the collection below.
