DOUGH AND DYNAMITE

This entry posted on February 10th, 2006

Walker’s fashion signature gets clearer and more confident every season, especially in the sense of a woman casually incor­por­ating elements of her man’s wardrobe into her own. The collection, by the way, was called Dough and Dynamite. It should generate plenty of the former for Walker – as for the latter, I think the packed London audience would agree it went with a bang! ”

Girls love Karen Walker — it’s a fact. And I for one will stand up and be counted as one of them! The highlight of the collection? A black silk-crepe wrap dress cut high on the neck with a single button on one hip. Accessorised with a jewelled beret, this oozed easy sophist­ic­ation and skimmed the body gently without being too tight. Ms Walker, we salute you…”

Even Hoxton favourite Karen Walker came over all grown-up, with elegant “sweater” dresses in slub silks, worn with high heels and opaque tights.”
 — Jess Cartner-Morley — Fashion Editor — THE GUARDIAN

The whole shebang had a wonder­fully offhand, downtown rock-and-roll vibe that did, indeed, feel fresh and revolu­tionary, despite its obvious refer­ences to the past. Vivre la revolution, Walker style!”
