About Karen Kane

In 1979, newlyweds Lonnie and Karen Kane launched a colorful collection of silk tops from the garage of their small Studio City home. The idea was simple: easy, effortless style with a laid-back luxe California vibe. Karen’s concept of understated glamour caught on quickly. Within a year, Lonnie and Karen moved to a new space downtown to keep up with demand.

As Karen’s company grew, so did her family. The birth of her sons, together with changing trends in fashion, encouraged Karen to shift her designs toward expressing a full lifestyle aesthetic. In addition to sportswear, her collection also consists of jewelry, hats, swimwear, and active-wear.

A Family Affair

Karen’s commitment to luxury and longevity has never waivered. Each season, Karen seeks out the finest fabrics from all over the world. Most of her sportswear collection is designed and manufactured in Los Angeles. Although they are no longer newlyweds, Karen and Lonnie still continue to own and operate the family-run company.

The Karen Kane Lifestyle

Karen's design philosophy is simple. She believes in real clothing for women who don't have time to search through trends to find the essentials. Subtle, yet luxurious. Relaxed, yet energetic. Unpretentious, yet refined. And above all else: comfortable, yet stylish...always.
