Lavender, Lavender, Lavender.
Upon first impressions, this is what I felt that KARLA ŠPETIĆ’s collection was only inspired by – from the lavender palette to the prints of lavendar on some of her pieces, but her resort collection, “Memories”, came down the runway, you could see that there was more than just lavendar. There were long feminine silhouettes with florals, whites and cornflour blues, sheer panels and sexy cut-outs too.
