Oh...the mighty StyleMax...a small mecca in the middle of the Midwest..takes place in the Second City-Chicago. Stepping off of the luminous gold elevators that continue to hold the delighted expressions of those long after they have stepped off onto floor 7 like masquerade masks at the beginning of a most exquisite ball, which is exactly what this is. The delectable scents of Italian leather shoes and the swish of chiffon are as overpowering as rich, red wine and chocolate souffle, and are eaten up by the senses just as quickly. Such joy in being lost in the maze of beautiful things, more like a mediation labyrinth raising your consciousness rather than fearing coming face to face with the manitor. Weaving in and out between fellow buyers clad in splashes of bold beauty and distinct precision, we are like a walking, breathing, ever changing loom of colors. Manuevering between the aisles, I spot a flag ship, a familiar face in the glorious sea of designers, Karen Kane, Inc.
Karen Kane, Inc. may not be the flashiest of designers, but she is consistent. She is consistent in continually bringing classic, ready to wear pieces to the table. She is movement in motion, painting the body in grace and ease, comfort and style. Her pieces are easy to mix and match. She combines classic pieces with pops of limited fall season colors. She showcases emerald green, lace, animal print, royal blue, and rich browns for her fall line. I love Karen Kane because they carry sizes XS-2X in many different items. I have my eye on the deep v lace dress with the black pea coat with faux fur color. Oh, how I love the fall lines!
