One of the most respected names in women's apparel today, Karen Kane has become truly synonymous with style, comfort, and sophistication. That distinction comes from the brand's namesake and chief designer.
In 1979, Karen Kane launched a colorful collection of silk tops from the garage of her small Studio City home. The idea was simple: easy, effortless style with a laid-back luxe California vibe. Karen's concept of understated glamour caught on quickly.
As Karen's company grew, so did her family. The birth of her sons, together with changing trends in fashion, encouraged Karen to shift her designs toward expressing a full lifestyle aesthetic. In addition to sportswear, her collection also consists of jewelry, hats, swimwear, and active-wear.
Karen's design philosophy is simple. She believes in real clothing for women who don't have time to search through trends to find the essentials. Subtle, yet luxurious. Relaxed, yet energetic. Unpretentious, yet refined. And above all else: comfortable, yet stylish…always.
