Here, Karine shares a bit of the mystery behind her designs.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
My design is a reflection of what I feel and experience. It might start with a simple bracelet that anybody could find anywhere. After spending some time just looking at objects, clothes, or even people surrounding me, I turn my inspiration into shape.
What prompted your move from the high-style Paris scene?
I had the opportunity to open my first US boutique. And L.A. has a style reputation of its own – the beautiful and interesting architecture, the culture, and most importantly the people of the West Coast, have definitely influenced my design style – organic elegance.
