Cape (fashion illustration of the day) / Plašt (modna ilustracija dana)

moja modna illustracija/ my fashion illustration

my fashion illustration (watercolour) / modna ilustracija (vodene boje)
 Lately, I've been illustrating capes pretty often. I guess it is just one of those trends that caught my eye. I know it is not exactly practical for everyday wear, but there is something truly glam about a cape. Perfect choice for a special occasion? Perhaps it really is. You will probably be noticed if you wear a cape. I think I would probably wear one if an opportunity ever presents itself. What about you? The cape on this illustration is red, while the dress and the heels are blue. Red and blue is one of those colour combinations I really like and I can't never get tired of it. I think this look goes well with big hair and no jewellery. What do you think?

U zadnje vrijeme, često ilustriram plašteve. Pretpostavljam da je to jedan od onih trendova koji mi je upao u oko. Mislim da nisu baš praktični za svakodnevne kombinacije, ali plašt ima u sebi nešto  doista glamurozno. Savršen izbor za posebnu priliku? Možda doista i je. Vjerovatno će vas primijetiti obučete li plašt. Mislim da bi ga nosila kada bi se neka prilika za to pojavila. A vi? Plašt na ovoj ilustraciji je crvene boje, a haljina i cipele na petu su plave. Kombinacija plave i crvene mi je jako draga i nikad mi ne dosadi. Mislim da ova odjevna kombinacija dobro ide s bujnom kosom i izostankom nakita. Što vi mislite?

  15. I think, capes are great, however, there's something costumey about them. I do own one, but seldom wear.

    1. thank you Lera:) I don't own one yet, but I would like to:)

  16. The full cape is a wonderful, nearly lost item in fashion. I often wish I could wear one. Yours is so lovely and the shoes are fancy too.

  25. Da, mislim da plašt zahteva neku posebnu priliku koju bih rado iskoristila :) Nosila bih baš sve kao na ilustraciji :)

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
