Karen Walker’s Advanced Style

Why this surge of love for older women? Why have they stolen the spotlight? Why do I gut-check my own style whenever I see them?


Well, frankly, because many of them look like this. Designer Karen Walker selected 12 models aged 65 to 92 for her latest 2013 eyewear collection, shot in collaboration with Ari Seth Cohen (of the blog Advanced Style), in the cheekily-titled campaign Karen Walker Forever. The 31-piece collection marries old favorites, like Deep Freeze and Number one, with new releases, like the Atomic.


Whether it’s a sort of a second-style-coming or these beautiful ladies have just been under our radar, there’s a reason they’re taking up our snapshot space.
