pop art at heart

My guest post for Freeworld Design Centre last week was was a cheerful mix of yellow, leopard print and pop art…


Karla Spetic’s AW2012 Heart collection is full of colourful contrasts which are pretty and playful, modern and minimal. This Croatian-born Australian designer successfully mixes pastel, print, neon & leopard in the latest collection from her label which she launched in 2008. Karla remarks, “I do like clean things; I like simplicity. My pieces aren’t complicated.”

Bright acid yellow takes centre stage playing the bold leading lady, while a burst of cherry red creates a sassy supporting actress not to be left in the wings. The Pop Art Lichtenstein print adds graphic and eye-catching interest to the blouses and the silhouettes of the A-line skirts further reinforces a demure 1950’s theme. The diaphanous sheer pieces add that touch of seduction giving the collection a modern, contemporary look, albeit quite breezy. *wink*
