Karen Kane launched her brand out of her Studio City, California garage in December, 1979. Karen Kane has now become one of the most respected names in women’s apparel today and has become truly synonymous with style, comfort, and sophistication.
While trends have changed since Karen launched her first collection, her approach and personal philosophy toward fashion has never wavered. She designs with ease, luxury, and longevity in mind. Her inspiration comes from that which is closest to her soul – the California Coast she has long called her home, the city streets she and her co-workers navigate each day, and of course, her family.
Karen Kane launched her first-ever hat collection in Spring 2015. According to Accessories Magazine, the headwear collection combines the glamour of cruise with a tribal influence, featuring warm neutral shades of Cocoa and Tan accented with Dusty Greys, Cool Blues and Navy. Materials are inspired by nature with hand woven raffia and linen incorporated into modern hat silhouettes. Prints are ethnic inspired with Aztec patterns translated into hand woven raffia straw. The collection incorporates functionality by introducing packable hats and offer UPF 50+ sun protection.
