The Believers

I absolutely loved Karen Walker's collection The Believers that she showed in New York at the Spring shows. And now the southern hemisphere version of the collection (for our winter) is up on her website - its always interesting to see how the tweak it for down here.
 
I've started thinking about what pieces I'll save up for and layby.. Im thinking the pastel apricot leopard print, some of the white lace and blue floral maybe? Love the big grey coat and the boxy jacket too.

These are my fave looks for us wee souls in down here in NZ...

Yah I love her acid wash pieces from her last collection Angels too. And im lucky enough to have a pair of the acidwash skinnies :D i miss wearing them! Damn summer. Looks like she has done a pale acid wash jean in this collection too!

The lace is beautiful! I feel semi-bad saying this, but this collection is very accessible in a DIY/op shop sort of way for those of us who can't afford K.W.'s prices.

I def agree with you Amber (its sad to think it though isn't it?) I already have a very similiar sheer floral shirt (trademe), and the blue and tan outfits are a classic (my dad has been wearing the combo for years) - really just requires a soft chambray shirt, and some slim fitting chinos (Ive tried on a few mens pairs, but sadly none are small enough!).

The redeeming thing with Karen Walkers pieces though is that that fabric is just beautiful - you really notice the difference in the flesh, and when you wear it. Heaven! x
