WALTER designed by Walter Baker is a NY based collection of contemporary separates for that urban hip, globe trotting gal...who just really looks stylishly hip wherever she goes. With a bit of uptown polish...and downtown edge.


We got a sneak peek before the actual presentation (really a jam packed party, later that night)---and chatted with the congenial designer himself.

 Baker was particularly jazzed about his jackets this season---and use of autumnally appropriate textiles/fabrics including a stretch leather used in want it now skinny pants...

make-up


 Menswear inspired silhouettes dominated the outerwear pieces, crisply tailored and wonderfully made we might add...but there were items that were decidedly feminine too-including this pretty peplum shaped outfit with lace inserts and a striking tiny black peter pan style collar---in a deep peacock blue. Sweet and sexy.




When we asked for a key piece of the season-this terrific semi structured leather blazer jacket was grabbed...timeless and always modern...a keeper.

Other key pieces-these images courtesy of the designer...including the debut of a line of handbags , clutches, cross body and chain bags...that work perfectly with the clothes-modern, mixed textures and strong geometric shapes.
