Sea Child (outfit post) / Dijete mora (odjevna kombinacija)










 




"What she remembered best of childhood was the sea excursions. Something about what being afloat spoke to her most basic self. Lift and fall of the waves, the sense of unbounded horizons with strange new places just beyond the curved limits of a watery world, that trilling edge of danger implicit in the very substance that supported her. All of it combined to assure her she was a Sea Child." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert.
Some people regard SF as a trivial form of literature. I take the opposite view. Not that I believe that all SF is brilliant, that would be silly. Nevertheless, most of my favourite novels belong either to SF or fantasy...and I'm not at all ashamed to admit it. Spending five years at a University studying literature hasn't changed my view. Studying reinforced my love of classics but did nothing to change my love for all kinds of works of literature. Some of my childhood favourites are still precisely that. Favourites. It remains a good reminder that for art there are no limits. Deep within us there is this need to classify everything. Sometimes that need makes us blind...and more than a little silly. Balancing on strange currents....We humans are quite capable of that, but alas we tend to forget it.

* The photos were taken in July, during a ferry ride from Starigrad (island Hvar) to Split. The outfit I don't feel like commenting, you've seen me wearing this New Yorker  dress and Azel sneakers often enough.


 " Ono čega se najbolje sjećala iz svoga djetinstva bijahu izleti na more. Nešto u bivanju na moru govorilo je njenom najdubljem ja. Podizanje i spuštanje valova, osjećaj beskrajnih horizonta sa neobičnim novim mjestima odmah iza zakrivljenih linija vodenog svijeta, taj uzbudljiv rub opasnosti očit u samoj tvari koja ju je nosila. Sve se to skupilo da bi je uvjerilo da je ona Dijete Mora." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert. (naslov preveden kao Kapitol Dina kod nas)

Neki ljudi smatraju da je znanstvena fantastika trivijalna književnost. Moje je mišljenje sasvim suprotno. Ne da vjerujem da je sva ZF brilijanta, to bi bilo blesavo. No, većina mojih omiljenih romana ipak pripada tom žanru ( i fantastici)....i uopće se ne sramim to priznati. Pet godina studiranja književnosti nije promijenilo moje mišljenje. Proučavanje klasika navelo me da ih volim više, ali nije učinilo da SF (i druge nepriznate književne vrste) volim manje. Neke od knjiga koje su mi bile najdraže u djetinstvu još su uvijek upravo to: moje najdraže knjige. To ostaje dobar podsjetnik da u umjetnosti nema granica. Duboko u nama postoji ta potreba da klasificiramo sve.  Ponekad nas ta potreba osljepljuje...i čini nas poprilično blesavima. Održavanje ravnoteže na neobičnim strujama...Mi ljudi smo sposobni za to, ali nažalost to često zaboravljamo.

* Fotografije su srpanjske, sa vožnje trajektom od Starigrada (na Hvaru) do Splita. Odjevnu kombinaciju ne bih posebno komentirala, vidjeli ste me u ovim patikama i haljini puno puta.

    1. Da, sasvim moguće, što se mene tiče nekako je najbolja ona famozna trojka (Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke) + R. Zelanzy (koji je poznat i po fantastici), a relativno nedavno otkriće je za mene bila Ursula K. Le Guin, baš me je oduševila sa romanom The Left Hand of Darkness- to mi je možda najbolja psihološka studija razlike među spolovima ikada.

      Što se fantastike tiče, mislim da će mi tu broj jedan uvijek biti Tolkien, a od ovih novijih samo su mi dva baš nekako sjela: Guy Gavriel Kay i Martin. Čitala sam još par njih koji su mi se dopali, ali nisu me baš oduševili.

  11. Haljina i patike su mi jedna od omljenih kombinacija :) Divne su slike i tvoj osmeh :) Nisam neki ljubitelj SF, mada sve zavisi od faze u kojoj sam ;)

  12. Bas me odusevljavas svojim nacinom razmisljanja! Ne mogu bas nista nadodati na ove zadnje recenice o klasificiranju i da umjetnost nema granica...
    Mozda bas zato sto sam se uvijek jezila nekakve klasifikacije, spadanja u grupe/ kutije, whatever, sam izabrala fotografiju kao svoj zivotni poziv... Mjesto koje nema granica i koje ne zelim i necu nikad klasificirati.

    1. Da, to je možda ta prednost fotografije kao relativno mlade umjetnosti, nema u njoj toliko tih podjela. No sa druge strane čini mi se da je ljudi još ne cijene dovoljno, barem ne kod nas.

  13. Oh, I love such trips a lot. Those pictures are so appealing and interesting, I'm really glad for you that you just took time and had such a wonderful sea excursion. I also like the way you look in that dress, it fits you like a glove:)
    By the way, I was never actually fond of SF, but I absolutely understand those ones who love such reading. Books are something what impossible to replace and I do believe there is the right book for every one of us.

  14. Bodycon dress and sneakers- Freaking awesome :)!! You look great and beautiful shots.

    Aha, you studied literature, that explains your love for art, reading and writing. That is neat and very impressive. Hmm... the human mind is so complicated. I would hate to be a mind reader :)). I think we often lose ourselves in ourselves and our thoughts but sometimes what we see is just really simply what it is :).

  15. I don't really read science fiction but I know that people seem to love different genres. Books they love can elicit all sorts of feelings/emotions from the reader and therefore its very presumptuous to write off a whole genre of books. We all like our own type of books and therefore every book is just as important based on the effect it has on the reader. Books aside, that figure girl is amazing. And the view is just peacefully beautiful

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
