Karen Walker took Babou, the ocelot Salvador Dalí kept as a pet, as the starting point for her Spring collection which also saw references to the birds of the South American jungle from which the ocelot hails. Walker puts a frill on everything: from tops and skirts to the most gorgeous chunky-heeled loafers and shoes. Dresses were made up in sheer fabrics with delicate pintucking. Sleeves were voluminous and ruffles abounded but Walker also included tailored and more masculine coordinated pieces for balance. There were no innovations with her eyewear this season, although several classic shapes made a return.
