Karen Walker looked to the women’s suffrage movement for her collection.

“I’m fascinated by the way suffragettes subverted the traditional concept of beauty,” said the designer, who infused her pretty lineup with a sense of free-spirited, powerful femininity.

She worked fresh, girly looks in masculine fabrics, including a cute blue dress with the bodice in washed twill and the full skirt in chambray, which felt slightly utilitarian, along with a checkered swing coat over a navy frock.

Walker also designed tomboy suits of comfortable blazers and roomy carrot pants, along with beautiful textured knits and cocoon overcoats, including a needlepoint floral peacoat worn with an orange Victorian frilled collar. Cartoonish prints of gloved hands, broken hearts, roses and fighting angels also gave a twist to pieces like a fluid shirt paired with cropped flannel pants and a red devoré velvet sleeveless maxidress.
