There’s no denying that I have long been a Karen Walker girl. Her Wellington store has seen my card swiped more times than I care to remember, since my first purchase there ten years ago. And while I’ve always been a fan of classic Karen, there’s an alluring property in her collaborations; initially After the Apple, Beau Coops, Dieppa Restrepo, and now, in her latest collection, entitled ‘Utopia’, come two new collaborations with BePositive and Benah.
To say I’m looking forward to next season’s accessories is an understatement. It’s a collaboration which seems so organic and natural in its conception. Of the ten bags, available from February 2014, it almost feels too difficult to make a choice, as although I’d like to, there’s certainly no way I could own them all.. is there? Understated and functional, the bags are the type of luxury which have a timeless appeal. Which is your favourite?
