The Karen Walker Spring Summer 2016 runway show gave a cool 80s vibe with stone wash and dark denim designs. There were also a few gold lame pieces and accents of bright orange for splash. I loved the new take on the jumpsuits with lots of zippers and pockets. Let’s not forget the high-waisted pants, flirty skirts with zipper accents and knit tops, pants and jackets to mix and match.
This prolific New Zealand designer knows how to create looks favorited by celebs like Anne Hathaway, Alexa Chung, Florence Welch, Christina Hendricks, Lorde, Rihanna, and Lena Dunham. Here are my favorite looks from the show. Check out the full runway on Vogue.com
