Creative collaborations have become an intrinsic part of the fabric of Karen Walker.

The designer’s latest project, Magic Hands, sees her revisiting an ongoing relationship with LA-based photographer Ari Seth Cohen.

“For me, it’s always a joy working with Karen,” the Advanced Style photographer says. “Right from the start we’ve had this shared sensibility that just makes us click.”

Having shot some fabulous ‘advanced’ faces in the past for Karen’s eyewear, this time an entirely different style of portraiture was called for to celebrate new additions to the Karen Walker Jewellery line. The brief: hands only.

“Hands can be every bit as expressive as faces,” Karen says. “These Magic Hands speak of a life well-lived and they absolutely have their own stories to tell.”

The hands come courtesy of two of Seth Cohen’s West Coast ladies; pianist, fashion designer, yoga fanatic and former star of the Ballets Russes 93 year-old Phyllis Sues, and infamous party girl, stylist, 1960s Broadway hoofer (including half a decade as a Shark in West Side Story) and great-grandmother, 78 year-old Roberta Haze.
