Karen Walker Pop-Up Shop at Den
by Naomi Nevitt
Manhattan boutique Den is sure to be on every well-dressed girl's To Do list this winter with the arrival of Walker's spring collection this Friday, 1 February 2008. For the past eight months, Den has hosted a short list of notably fresh talents&emdash;including menswear designer Tim Hamilton, Cheap Monday, and Rag & Bone&emdash;in a space that completely transforms with each new occupant's complete collection.
Beautifully art-directed by famed interior designer, Katie Lockhart, the Karen Walker store opening is scheduled to coincide with the designer's fall/winter 2008 presentation at New York Fashion Week. "It's like a mini Karen Walker emporium," the designer says of her new temporary NYC outpost. And while true-blue KW devotees are already planning repeat visits, no one seems as excited as Walker herself. "For a designer that doesn't have his/her own retail store in New York, it really is the dream environment."
