Karen Walker: "The Brady Bunch" Meets "The Stepford Wives"

Illustration for article titled Karen Walker: The Brady Bunch Meets The Stepford Wives

New Zealander Karen Walker's clothes always pack a punch, mixing wearability with whimsy — which is precisely why, we're guessing, we saw Teen Vogue's Amy Astley front and center at the show on Thursday. Walker's Spring/Summer 2008 collection conjured memories (inherited memories, that is) of a sort of "Best Of" of late 60's/early 70's iconography. The opening look had us screaming "Carol Brady!", while other ensembles seemed straight out of the costume department of The Stepford Wives (pussy bows, pom poms, and polka dots; short shorts in easy silks.) We look forward to the spread in which Teen Vogue tries to make these clothes look serious, but ends up making them look ridiculous in ways they were never intended to be.

The model in the seersucker(?!) hat is the same baby-eating ghost demon from BCBG. I want to put her out of the business. She scare me.
