Kiwi fashion royalty Karen Walker announces today a collaboration with USA denim brand Madewell. The co-designed collection is ‘a culmination of some of Karen’s most iconic pieces, Madewell’s denim expertise and their effortlessly cool aesthetic.’ The result is a collection of 23 pieces, including dresses, shirts, sweatshirts, skirts, jackets, jumpsuits, denim, and sunglasses in Karen Walker shapes.
Madewell had access to the Karen Walker archives and revisited many best known and much loved prints and silhouettes in the design process for this collaboration. Head designer Joyce Lee said of the collection, ‘Madewell collaborations start with what our team is wearing and loving. We’re long time fans of Karen Walker and her brand. We love the energy they bring to their designs through their use of color and prints, and the way they reimagine denim with a novelty twist.’
The Madewell x Karen Walker collection is available in select Madewell U.S stores, Karen Walker stores in New Zealand and Tokyo, and at both brands online stores from August 15th.
