Get a load of “Old Ladies Rebellion,” a clothing line launched by a 24-year-old specifically for, well….old ladies. And by old, Karst means old: seventy-plus. Her catwalk shows are only for the gray-haired and gorgeous. The elderly models elegantly sashay out in a series of knee length shift dresses. Karst keeps her signature silhouette interesting via bold graphics, quirky, clever spins tromp d’oeil (patterns that give the illusion of accessories or items that aren’t there), and ironic statements such as, “Let’s Begin With The End.” The designer has said she looks to older women, specifically her grandmother as muses. She cut her chops at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and went on to gain experience on London’s Savile Row and in Paris. Now, with buzz building and the collection available to view online (you must reach out directly to Karst for purchase), it’s beyond clear that this is a rebellion worth joining. [HighSnobette]
