A former buyer and stylist, Karen Zambos turned a job in retail into a career in design. Her first pieces—hand-dyed vintage slips—sold so well at the L.A. boutique she managed that Zambos set about reworking other thrift-store finds into cleverly altered must-haves. Now she produces her own full line (supplemented by the occasional can't-miss vintage discovery), featuring flirty silk tops, sexy rompers, and racerback dresses. Adored by her Hollywood clientele, Zambos's line embodies California-girl cool.
There's nothing like a punch of color to offset your summer tan and help you achieve an effortlessly crisp, classic look. This sale has loads of great glow-enhancers by the likes of Ali Ro, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Catherine Malandrino—from a coral silk-crepe tank dress to an aquamarine maxi—plus complementary pieces like tops, shorts, and short-sleeved anoraks.
You’ve mulled over these hot items before. Now, there can be no more wavering, considering their attainability level just went up a notch. From Karen Zambos, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Cynthia Rowley, and others, find the too-good-to-pass-up pieces you can finally make yours.
This bright-hot lineup represents West Coast dressing at its liveliest. L.A.-based Karen Zambos brings her special brand of California cool to scallop-edged mini dresses, tops, and artfully pin-tucked tunics, all in daring wild-child prints and sunny, citrusy hues.
