Karen Walker Takes Us on a ’60s Seaside Escape…And We Love It!

Sometimes fashion gets written off for being too superficial, but that's only when you overlook the whole story. This sentiment is of particular note to Karen Walker's latest spring/summer collection, "The Village." Walker had been re-watching the cult '60s TV show "The Prisoner," and was inspired by its navy blazers, tan chinos, Edwardian frill as well as the premise of a seaside holiday resort that's actually a prison for retired spies. Knowing this, her striped chiffon drape dress was suddenly more than just beautiful, it was a romance between the high seas and, well, jail. If that doesn't put your mind through a loop, she also threw in plenty of playful, psychedelic prints, which would be perfect for Julia Frakes, who was in attendence. As usual, fantastic shades were in abundance, and for something new, Walker did a shoe collaboration with Pointer. Cool girl boat shoes, here we come!
