Review and Pictures of Karen Walker Runway Show at 2012 Spring Summer New York Fashion Week

2012 New York S/S Fashion Week: Karen Walker

No girl can resist Karen Walker's cool-girl style, and, as expected, the designer gave us more to look forward to with her Spring 2012 collection. Her "American Girl" theme, inspired by the classic flick Taxi Driver, showed gorgeous prints and soft tailoring. Described as "equal parts Betsey and Iris," the collection highlighted a mix of painterly florals, checks, and polka-dot prints. Silhouettes were soft and louche as models — accessorized with the cutest printed turbans, killer sunglasses, patent loafers, and baseball caps — walked down the runway in a range of silk and crepe de Chine peplum blouses, strapless jumpers, shirt dresses, and pyjama trousers. In a perfect world, we'd own every piece from the cute-meets-cool collection. Read below for more details.

  • Trends: Printed shirt dresses, pyjama styles, knee-length hemlines, mixed prints.
  • Colours: Yellow, cobalt blue, navy, forest green, pink and brown.
  • Key Look: A bold multicoloured horizontal stripe wool blazer coat.
  • Accessories: Amazing round sunglasses, patent clutches, lace-up booties, patent loafers, and cap-toe pumps.
  • Who Would Wear It: Girls who crave classic looks with a twist like Alexa Chung.
