Karen's Perfect Day

Karen Walker's Spring 2011 show was quirky, colourful and fun. I loved the pop of the colour orange and yellow because it really represents spring. The clothes were very refined but still very Karen Walker. You can see this in the cut of the skirts and cute prints. The collection was very ladylike with the longer length skirts, button-up shirts and skinny belts. Karen's definitely referencing the 50's but it's all done in a way that you still know it's Karen because of her prints. I especially love the one with little birds. It kinda reminded me of the animal prints that Miu Miu had for Spring 2010 which were a big hit. The upside down "I love NY " t-shirt is a homage to New York, as this is her ninth showing there and it will probably be a best seller. I can already see all the cool kids wearing it. Karen's clothes are fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously. That's probably why her clothes appeal to a wide audience and is so successful. Perfect Day, Perfect Collection!
