In typical Karen Walker fashion, with each new collection comes a whimsical story to set the scene. Aptly titled 'Babou's Revenge', Karen Walker's latest offering is rooted in a tale around Salavador Dali's pet ocelot, an exotic feline pulled from the African wilderness to live a life in captivity in Manhattan. But enough's enough, fierce Babou is growing claws and about to seek its revenge.
This wildcat collection, then, is an eclectic mix of folksy peasant cotton voiles, colourful bird and cat prints, Latina ruffles, delicate embroideries, offset by frill-fronted patent leather jackets, 60's-style leopard print shifts and chic tailored suiting.
There's beauty in the details, with pretty pearl buttons, gold arrow zippers, tassels and bold stitching deliver on Karen Walker's signature aesthetic.
Available online now, Babou’s Revenge by Karen Walker is in-store worldwide February 2017.
