Karen Walker Serves Up Advanced Style Inspiration for Spring

Karen Walker's sunglasses might be kooky, but they're kooky in a totally wearable, covetable way. The Spring 2013 sunnies line follows in the designer's usual aesthetic: something your grandmother just handed down to you, which you then bedazzled with glitter, and now all your friends want one.

To illustrate "the statement that Karen Walker is for everybody, of all ages," in the press release's words, the brand enlisted the help of Ari Seth Cohen and his band of Advanced Style ladies to shoot the lookbook. And sure enough, the style inspiration—like the frames—are ageless.
