Karen's Influences

We thought it would be interesting to discuss the influences and inspiration that went into the creation of the Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Fall 2009 Collection. Karen Zambos is constantly inspired by elements of everyday life, specifically real women and the different ways that they put together and accessorize their outfits.

For this collection (and as with her line as a whole), Karen was inspired by the easy wearability of vintage fashion-she loves the worn in, owned-forever feel of vintage clothing as well as the fact that it is often made of unique fabrics and filled with amazing patterns and colors. Karen incorporated her love of vintage and vintage inspired pieces into the fall collection.

The Fall 2009 Collection features bold prints and colors such as coral and red, yet is anchored by more traditional fall colors and fabrics. Karen incorporated different textures and fun yet wearable prints into the Fall 2009 Collection, which resulted in a fun, fresh, wearable collection. The collection includes easy dresses and silky tops which are perfect for day or night and for layering, as well as a line of cozy, oversize sweaters which will be great as the nights begin to cool down towards the end of summer. The Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Fall 2009 Collection will be available in stores and online soon!
