Sweet Inspiration

Sandra Zovko, the founder of luxury knitwear company Mila Zovko, honours her late mother, Mila, and her talents with each collection. From graphic prints to eye-catching colour combinations, the sweaters commemorate her mom's original, playful designs she knit throughout her lifetime.

The NEDA tank is a new style for Spring/Summer 2018 that sourced inspiration from an original Mila Zovko knit Sandra recently received via her childhood babysitter (named Neda) who hoped to inspire a future design.

The original sweater was oversized with a fun, wavy pattern and chenille piping.

For spring, NEDA is sleeveless and pays homage to the vibrant mix of colors, textures, and patterns Sandra's mother lovingly poured into her handcrafted pieces. In this Mila Zovko transformation, Sandra preserved the unique graphic elements that reference 1980s fashion but also give it an incredibly modern sensibility.

Mila Zovko sweaters are made with love using beautiful Italian yarn and produced in New York City.
