Always the rebel, for the Karen Walker Spring 2010 RTW line, the designer took a different approach. It seems her inspiration sprung from a lust for all that is nautical as well as feminine frills.
The end result of this mashing of styles is a look that comes off, essentially, as a girly, sea-faring hobo.
While there are some cutesy, nautical-reminiscent prints in the Karen Walker Spring 2010 RTW line, they are paired together in such a manner that the one who dons said garments might look like an optical illusion.
