Kembra by Karen Black: Hey, it’s fashion week, and anything goes. So it’s really not that surprising to see a coven of neon ghouls being chased by a shark, right? Especially not if said ghouls are sporting fun, wearable frocks from Kembra by Karen Black. And considering that this new line is by none other than shock-rock impresario Kembra Pfahler, of cult band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black fame, it’s downright logical.
“It’s ready-to-wear for the evil city woman,” the designer said. Loosely based on early Sixties dresses Pfahler collected throughout the past year, the dozen black-and-white looks she sent out were sleek and sexy, though with a definitely chaste quality with all the prim scoopnecks and not-that-short minis. There were also some great boxy double-breasted twill jackets energized with cotton poplin minishorts, a strapless zigzag-print party dress in silk jersey and a slew of minidresses and suits with white collars and cuffs — just the kind a modern-day Wednesday Addams would wear.
