Shop It Now: The New Anthropologie Collabs From Jen Kao and Karen Walker
Since its launch last April,
Anthropologie's online collaboration platform Made In Kind has consistently and quietly offered up some of the best capsule collections around. To date, there have been ranges from Gregory Parkinson, Timo Weiland, Tracy Reese, John Patrick, Chris Benz, and Samantha Pleet, among others, and each has been just as appealing as the first. The latest batch, available online now, is no exception.
Karen Walker, one of Made In Kind's inaugural designers, is back with a new line called Runway. Inspired by "Victorian seaside holidays," the dresses, skirts, and tops come in a nautical palette of blue, red, and white; a few striped-bottom ruffled pieces call to mind Walker's outstanding Spring 2010 collection.
Meanwhile, with a collection filled with mixed prints and femme silhouettes, Jen Kao is making her Made In Kind debut. Inspired by a trip to Bali a few years ago, her collection has a distinct East-meets-West vibe and also features five silver pieces — a ring, a necklace, two sets of earrings, and one very charming bracelet.
