Indefatigable Portable Style

The contents of New Zealand designer Karen Walker’s handbag are perused in NBC New York’s weekly ‘Purse Purge’ feature. Walker is “one of few fashion folks creating clothing in two time zones and for two totally opposite fashion calendars, her native New Zealand entering its spring season while New Yorkers begin bundling for fall. Somehow, though, the indefatigable Walker never lets her unusual schedule slow her down: a dependably fabulous sense of style and quirky sense of humour have made her an international style icon. Unsurprisingly, the contents of her handbag were as stylish as she is.” Walker’s sunglasses are also the New York magazine’s ‘Best Bet’. “We’re looking ahead to sunnier days with Karen Walker’s splurge-worthy spring eyewear. The Number One sunglasses are a collection standout, with thick, modified cat-eye frames accented by a neon yellow border.”
