The show notes for Karen Walker Fall 2012 described the collection as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea meets the Victorian age with a dash of '60s pop. An eclectic reference frame, but not totally out of left field for the quirky Kiwi designer. She's known for prints, and this season's paisleys definitely delivered. Adorning blousy silhouettes and grounded by solid separates, this is a look we are ready to jump on for spring—which, conveniently, we'll be able to do at a fraction of the price, what with her upcoming Anthropologie partnership for the Hi There from Karen Walker diffusion line. While you wait for that to drop, take a gander at the printspirational looks above.
