Karla Spetic's Pastel Fall 2010 Collection Is Balenciaga Meets Burberry

A pastel palette seems to always be synonymous with all things saccharine-sweet, but Karla Spetic 's collection of dresses, sweaters, and skirts are spunky enough to delight even the hardest among us. Karla makes the soft shades work by blocking them with bolder, brighter colors, and using unconventional cuts and drapes for a more sophisticated, less WASP-y look (think the structure and color palette of Balenciaga with all the twisted, draped softness of Burberry). The strong emphasis on geometry, black accents, and illustrated girl motif channel the '80s in a good way, as if someone had taken all the Patrick Nagel-flavored living rooms of our childhoods and distilled them down to one sweet, potent spirit.
