San Francisco-based
designer Karen Thompson
began her career in fashion
just three short years ago
showing easy coats and un-
constructed dresses and
separates. This year, her
spring collection emphasizes
fluid lines and shapes.
Comfort and confidence are
obvious design priorities.
Thompson is currently using
subtle greys, roses, seafoam
and black in her tone-on-tone
cotton silk and rayon urban-
wear — primarily oversized
tops and slimly proportioned
bottoms.
The aura of her designs is
clean and elegant, but with a
subtle restraint that yields to
the strength of her favorite
fabrics — cotton, jacquard,
rayon matte jersey, silk and
cotton blends, and metallic
knits.
Highlighting her current col-
lection is a cropped tuxedo
jacket, a pea coat made of
embossed Swiss cotton and
tone-on-tone raincoats. The
separates include a slim
button-back skirt, narrow-fitting
sailor pants and metallic knit
tank dresses.
Jeweled sorority coats, lined
in silver lame, feature letters
from the Greek alphabet on a
post-modern palette of coral,
seafoam, dove grey and white
linen. Consistent throughout is
a solid foundation of details,
such as a half-moon notch on
shawl lapels and Thompson's
signature ceramic buttons.
The textural ceramic closures
give the collection a unique
and striking appeal. The com-
bination of fabrics and distinc-
tive buttons has proven so suc-
cessful that a collection of ac-
cessories was created about a
year ago. Cleverly combining
ceramic shapes with pearls,
