Karla Spetic - RAFW S/S 2010/2011
I am obsessed with three things at the moment – suiting, preferably in nude colours, and making contrast with print. So I was first rather taken aback and then falling head over heels in love when all of the above walked down the Rosemount Australian Fashion Week catwalk, courtesy of Karla Spetic.
The Dubrovnik born Australian fashion designer was inspired by Australia itself with it’s landscapes and history that, she felt, related to her own childhood. The outcome sees a mix of prints contrasting with nude and blacks and surprising light pink polka dots. Strict suits, playful translucent dresses and oversized trenches accompanied by cutouts in various places revealing hints of bare skin.
And even if the landscapes remind me a little of Christopher Kane’s nuclear prints, they fit the rest of the collection so well that I just cannot help but want it. Starting with the tree printed swimsuit, summer’s not far...I can feel it.
