Pieces I Love Right Now: Karen Kane

Katie Schuppler

 

I was recently sent two of my favorite pieces from the current collection at Karen Kane and I am obsessessing over them! First is the body hugging and super flattering “Concave Geo Dress” which I paired with black patent booties and a black faux fur muff clutch. Perfect for a classy but edgy night out!

 

My other favorite piece is the “Riviera Lace Top” which I put with teal cropped trousers and a tan platform heel with a glittery Marc Jacobs clutch handbag. This top is great worn casually during the day with jeans or dressed up with a fun pant and heels for the night!

 

About Karen Kane:

One of the most respected names in women’s apparel today, Karen Kane has become truly synonymous with style, comfort, and sophistication. That distinction comes from the brand’s namesake and chief designer.

After growing up in the small town of Santa Barbara, Karen moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer. She enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and graduated two years later with a degree in fashion. After meeting her husband Lonnie, the pair launched Karen Kane out of their garage in Studio City. With little more than a dream to work off of, they shipped their first collection in December 1979. By the time they were ready to begin production on their next collection, they realized that they would need more space to keep up with demand. Moving to a new space in Downtown LA, Karen and Lonnie continued to do all of their own sewing and manufacturing before finally finding contractors who could support their growing business.

As Karen’s company continued to expand, so too did her family. Today, she has two sons who live in Los Angeles and New York City, and the company has grown into a 130,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Vernon, California. Karen’s collections are featured in department stores and specialty boutiques nationwide. The Vernon office holds the company’s design, silk screening, research, pattern making, grading, cutting, and customer service departments. Corporate showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas assist with sales, as do many retail representatives across the country.
