A Happy Take on Denim Essentials by Karen Walker and Outland Denim

Karen Walker and Outland Denim have once again collaborated, offering a joyful twist on essential wardrobe pieces through a thoughtfully curated range of denim. Denim remains a timeless staple throughout the year, and we’re thrilled to witness the arrival of this exciting collaboration.

This collection encapsulates the values of sustainability and social responsibility in its production process. This marks the second collaborative collection between Karen Walker and Outland Denim, following the highly successful debut in 2019, which quickly sold out. The seven-piece collection reintroduces classic Karen Walker designs, including the beloved Aeronautical Jumpsuit, straight-leg and flared jeans, the elegantly flared Duster Jeans, and a utilitarian-inspired shirt. Offered in both dark indigo and washed denim, the collection exudes timeless charm, infused with Karen Walker’s signature optimism and joy.
