Karen Walker’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection is inspired by the cult 1960’s British television show, The Prisoner. A seaside holiday resort that serves as a prison for retired spies, combined with trippy 60s’s psychedelia, became the perfect starting point for a Karen Walker
Designer Karen Walker states, “We’ve been rewatching The Prisoner and have always loved the look it has – 60’s Edwardian seasside – all navy blazers, tan chinos and stripy t‐shirts. Even more so, we love the central idea of a seaside holiday resort that’s actually a prison for retired spies.”
Walker’s signature custom fabric prints play with the seaside mood, as displayed in the turquoise, red and white flag bunting in silk crepe de chine, and assorted polka dot prints including a white bird polka dot pattern.
This season also sees the debut collection of Karen Walker for Pointer footwear. Featuring two styles, the Alice Boat show and Caz desert shoe, this is the first collection for New Zealand designer Karen Walker with British shoe makers Pointer.
