Designer: Karen Walker
Location: Exit Art
Crowd: Rumi Neely, Natalie Cantell, Chelsea Leyland, Samantha Swerta, Laura McLaws Helms and other blogosphere It girls.
Inspiration: The American Girl by way of Betsy and Iris in Taxi Driver.
First Impressions: In keeping with spring's biggest (or at least most vibrant) trend, Walker piled on the prints and colors to cute, if sometimes jarring, effect, heightened by Forties 'do-rags, neon lips and handbags, oversized rose-tinted sunglasses and a cacophonous PiL soundtrack.
Standout Piece(s): Walker's prints worked best when offset by solids, as in the yellow/mustard/navy checked blouse and tuxedo jacket paired with navy menswear trousers or a pair of sweet daisy print pants tempered by a grey cashmere twinset.
