QUEENIE WAS A DOG

Karen Walker’s London show was a stand-out. Her signa­tures were present and correct: the edgy sensu­ality, the gender games, the twisted sense of humour (that evil clown motif!), and, always, the best soundtrack in town (Richard Hell! Thank you!). They all add up to a darkly original point of view. New Zealand, you can’t have her back! (She brings me out in exclam­ation points!)

It was a strong show with a great atmosphere; I loved the prints and her sense of colour. The clothing is playful yet sophist­icated.

As soon as it was over, I wanted to rewind and seat through it again! A wonderful show and a wonderful collection.

With her mix of shrunken schoolboy jackets, sweetly subversive prints, and pop-art tomboy graphics, Karen Walker has once again created a fun and highly wearable altern­ative to the tight-and-sexy cliché of feminine dressing.
