The Karlotalaspalas Spring/Summer 2011 collection is the epitome of how I would imagine a countryside getaway with a contemporary twist. The color palette was kept neutral and earthly with deep browns, soft whites, blacks and grays.
Suspenders, messenger bags and vests gave the collection a workwear feel, but the Karlotalaspalas Spring/Summer 2011 collection stayed on the bleeding edge with cool dungarees and asymmetrical pant legs.
Implications - With the current recession still having its affects on consumer purchasing habits, companies that produce high-priced items should consider implementing traditional designs that consumers will not tire from. While many consumers can afford to indulge in numerous lower-priced goods, upon the decision to invest in high-end goods, many consumers look for neutral designs in order to ensure they get longevity out of their purchases.
