Initially the collection reminded me of the album art from Joy Division's "Unknown Pleasures"- a design which, in the words of Susie Goldring from the BBC Online 'reflects a pulse of power, a surge of bass, and raw angst.' Karla Spetic does not evoke the antiquated angst of a teenager but has always appealed to the feminine and delicate sphere of design. Although I would suggest knitwear has to be a little tough in order to survive a long Winter colour, texture and a vibrant design is just as important. Winter wardrobes are too easily swamped with various shades of black, bland coats and jackets which are versatile and some companies are thriving where there is an increasing demand for colourful knitwear, such as All Knitwear by Annie Larson and Nixi Killick. If I was clever enough to operate a knitting machine (or beg my boyfriend's mom) you can be sure I would be all over this too, generating my own designs. But I have exams and assignments to stress about instead.
