Outstanding and fabulous, the newest Karla Spetic fall/winter 2012 collection is rife with on-trend pieces featuring sharp and clean cuts, beautiful colors, prints and details. Talking about the modern Karla Spetic woman, the talented designer said in an interview with The Block that, “She could be anyone, a unique and interesting woman who has an unrivaled imagination and a one of a kind personality.”
As for the design process, Spetic explained that, “Every season is different. I can’t seem to make rules and work by certain guidelines. Sometimes I work back to front.” For the upcoming fall 2012 season, the Croatian-born designer has opted for organza skirts, pop art bodices and feminine dresses, vividly colored and striped pullovers, leopard-printed trousers and blazers, army-inspired jackets, leisure overalls, leggings, sculpted tank tops, pleat coats, pocket shirts, pop art heels and brogues. All in all, the Karla Spetic fall/winter 2012 collection has everything you need in order to look stylish all the season long.
Alongside eye-popping prints, the color palette of the line also includes lighter hues and lovely pastels. “I think this is a reflection of how we feel in winter. It’s really cold and the weather is grey. So adding some colour would literally brighten things up,” Spetic said. “I grew up in the 80’s so there was lots of colour and shape. I have drawn inspiration from this in the past but generally, many different things inspire me. I can find inspiration everywhere,” Karla Spetic confessed in an interview with The Vine.
In addition to this, the young designer told The Block that, “As a child I was always creating and making things, so for me it seemed only natural to end up in the creative industry. I decided I wanted to make clothes when I was 11 years old and this was the time that my mother and I moved to Australia. It was a significant part of my life where my senses were opened to new cultures, change of environment and new ideas.”
