Before heading to the Pink Fashion Show, last Friday I had to stop by Carla Grima Atelier to preview her Summer 2015 collection, Serenity.
Inspired by nature's luxury, especially the colours of the Mediterranean, Carla Grima's Summer 2015 collection boasts exquisitely tailored pieces in rich, high quality natural fabrics such as cotton and silk. The Summer 2015 Collection features both casual and more elegant pieces that are sure to get you noticed wherever you wear them to. Serenity is a well suited name for this collection which reminds me of serene days in the sun with a light breeze and tranquil colours of blue, green and muted orange that only nature can offer.
Carla is perhaps most known for her beautiful, flowy kaftans which are in effect what she started off with but for this collection, she has even introduced new garments such as trousers and shorts, all of which are very light and airy making them perfect for our summer. I especially like the turbans and scarves and I like the personal touch Carla gives to her creations with her signature being printed discreetly on random areas of each piece.
The collections see their start at her home studio where the designs the patterns and selects the fabrics herself, to bring to life her ethereal designs. This is the atelier's second summer in business and I hope we will see more of her designs soon!
