Karen Walker stars in her latest campaign

Karen Walker boldly goes where the designer has never been before: in front of the camera as the face of her latest eyewear collection, Transformers. “In an average day I need to take on so many different personas. That’s modern life for all women. The images for this campaign sprang out of wanting to reflect that multiplicity,” Walker says.

Influenced by the collections exaggerated shapes and proportions, Walker decided to take her own transformations to extremes. Turning to artists Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol as inspiration, Walker is transformed into a haughty Princess, a platinum-stacked country and western star, a sleek Sassoon-bobbed eighties disco diva and a flaming red Thierry Mugler android.

The Transformers collection features nine bold frames – think oversized squares and 50s-inspired cat eyes – in an eclectic colour palette of tortoiseshell, dusky pink, khaki and a burst of sunshine yellow.


Liam autumn 2017 lookbook

Call us crazy but if the autumn fashion that we’re seeing hitting stores is anything to go by, we’re definitely not dreading the cooler season as much as we usually would. The first arrivals from Liam’s Autumn 17 collection, Moon Study are set to land in-store next Friday and we’re already smitten.

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant world of art, Liam designer Emily Miller-Sharma beckons us to consume art often. Artistic eclecticism is obvious is Miller-Sharma’s choice of exquisite fabrics and textures: think divine silk and velvet contrasted with the crispest cotton, a hint of denim and corduroy. Beautiful jewel tones sit in a harmony with a colour palette of soft tan, blush, black and white.
