Karen Walker at New York Fashion Week S/S 2007

After crossing the pond to show her debut New York Fashion Week collection, Karen Walker’s Spring 2007 collection was inspired by the country she left behind. Well British land girls of the 1940s who went to work in the fields after World War 2 to be exact.

“They had to put away their pretty dresses, throw on men’s suits and mix it up with womenswear, making do with what they had.”

The collection was signature Karen Walk cool. The effortless collection had menswear influences with wide legged slouchy pants and high waists. Dresses and skirts billowed about like your boyfriends oversized shirts would and pieces were nipped at the waist or at the hem line.

The ambiguously hip collection was also influenced by Charlie Chapman, with models walked down the catwalk with the classic black tap shoe with white socks.

From moving from one coast to another, Karen Walker has just made many new fans.
