about

Karen Walker is a fashion brand with a reputation for its original, effortless and unpretentious style. Karen Walker shows each season as part of New York Fashion Week and has permanent showrooms in London, New York, Tokyo and Sydney.

Karen Walker is stocked in over 350 stores throughout the world in cities including New York, London, Los Angeles, Sydney and Tokyo. There are also three Karen Walker flagship stores in New Zealand and one flag ship store in Taipei.

Since 2002 Karen Walker has been working closely with stylist Heathermary Jackson on all collections.

She is also part of the group behind The Department Store in Auckland. The Department Store is a modern take on the traditional department store and includes a Karen Walker boutique alongside the best of Aucklands beauty, art, interior, fashion and food. Its a 360 degree shopping experience that stretches across three floors.

The Look

Karen Walker collections are high casual with one foot in tailoring and the other in street wear. The reoccurring theme is taking extremes and pushing them together  masculine and feminine, tailored and street, luxury and non luxury, dark and super-cute. Overall the label has a feeling of effort-lessness and has been described by the U.K.s Independent newspaper as being the kind of look that provides a means of appearing cool but not trying-too-hard, cute but not saccharine, alternative but not self consciously so. The fact that these clothes appear to be so totally not fashion is what makes them so now.
