The Future of Fashion with Alexa Chung (documentary series review / recenzija dokumentarnoga serijala)
Recently I discovered a series of documentaries Future of Fashion, presentedby Alexa Chung. I loved everything about it really. The production, the themes, the editing and the concept- everything was brilliant. Naturally, I also loved the presenter. This is Alexa Chung at her most adorable. Nevertheless, she also knew when to be serious and professional, depending on the theme and the context of the episode. I really feel that she has put her best foot forward. As a presenter she was very top of the game but I also loved how she included her personal experiences in fashion.
Nedavno sam otkrila dokumentarni serijal Budućnost mode kojega vodi Alexa Chung. Sve mi se u vezi ovoga serijala svidjelo. Produkcija, teme, montaža i sami koncept- sve je bilo savršeno. Naravno, jako mi se svidjela voditeljica. Alexa Chung je i inače jako simpatična, ali u ovom serijalu je stvarno preslatka. No, zna kada biti i ozbiljna i jako profesionalna, ovisno o temi i kontekstu neke epizode. Mislim da se doista potrudila. Kao voditeljica bila je sjajna, a svidjelo mi se i kako je uključila svoja osobna iskustva u modnom svijetu.
The documentary is very relavent. Whatever it discusses, it and goes straight to the point. This documentary tries to answer very specific questions and because of that, it is quite serious at times. However, there is also humour in it. The editing is amazing. I loved the music as well. It just all feels very positive and uplifting. I'm sure it could be an inspiring and motivating series even to those that aren't interested in fashion. If you're interested in fashion, well then it is perfect. There are many episodes and they focus on different themes and issues.
Dokumentarac je jako relevantan. Što god da raspravlja, odmah prelazi na bitno. Nastoji odgovori na jako specifična pitanja i zbog toga je na trenutke dosta ozbiljan, ali u njemu ima i humora. Montaža je sjajna. Popratna glazba mi se jako svidjela. Sve mi se nekako čini pozitivno i motivirajuće i doista mislim da bi moglo motivirati i nekoga koga ne zanima moda. Ako vas zanima moda, onda je jednostavno savršen za vas. Ima puno epizoda i sve su usmjerene na različite teme i probleme.
I heard some people argue that the series isn't exactly realistic because it was made by British Vogue, but I disagree with it. It is not about British Vogue at all. It tries to promote fashion (and British fashion) , but isn't that normal? To me it seems like a high quality documentary. What is wrong with explaining the dynamics of the fashion world? Why not interview University professors who teach Fashion Law or Fashion psychology? Those are the woman who are trying to make the fashion world more ethical and diverse. The fact is that the fashion is a billion dollar industry in UK. With the unemployment being as high as it is, what is wrong with encouraging people to find work in fashion? A lot of people want to work in fashion. This series explains how to go about it. Perhaps it inspires someone to start their own business or to find work in the fashion- that would be great!
Neki ljudi govore da ova serija nije posve realistična jer su je snimio Britanski Vogue, ali ja se ne slažem s tim, jer se uopće ne radi o tome. Naravno da pokušava na neki način promovirati modu, posevbno britansku modu, ali to je normalno, zar ne? Meni se ovo čini kao kvalitetni dokumentarac. Zašto ne bi netko objasnio kako funkcionira modni svijet? Zašto ne napraviti intervju sa sveučilišnim profesoricama koja predaju modno pravo ili modnu psihologiju? To su žene koje pokušavaju učiniti modni svijet raznolikim i više etičkim. Istina je da je moda u UK jedna od najisplativijih industrija i jako je bitna za njihovo gospodarstvo, pa zašto ne bi potakli ljude da rade u toj industriji, pogotovo jer puno njih to želi, a ne zna kako. Puno ljudi želi raditi u modi i ako im ovo pomogne da nađu svoje mjesto i ako se smanji nezaposlenost, to je sjajno.

I found all of the episodes to be very informative. They're professionally filmed and well developed. I really think that this series provides a unique view into the world of fashion. It is something that needed to be done. To conclude, I do recommend watching at least one of the episodes. If you have time, watch them all. Great production and meaninful content! We need more documentaries like this one. That would be all. I selected a few episodes that I liked the most. You can find them all here (link to British Vogue youtube page). You can watch them separetely or you can watch the full documentary.
Mogu reći da su me se sve epizode ostavile dojam informiranosti, profesionalnosti, te su dobro smišljene i snimljene. Stvarno mislim da ova serija dokumentaraca pruža jedinstven pogled u modni svijet. Trebalo je nešto ovakvo snimiti. Da zaključim, preporučavam da pogledate barem jednu epizodu, a imate li vremena, pogledate ih sve. Odlična produkcija i kvalitetan sadržaj. Treba nam više takvih dokumentaraca. To je sve za danas. Izabrala sam par episoda koje su mi najviše svidjele. Možete ih sve pronaći ovdje (poveznica na youtube profil od britanskoga Vogua). Možete ih gledati posebno ili cijeli dokumentarac zajedno.
With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts here, here, here, here and here. Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
Today I'm back with a list of suggestion of things to do in Split city during autumn and winter. There are many benefits to visiting seaside during the colder months. First of all, it's not as crowded as it is during the summer. Secondly, you can still get all the health benefits that your typical seaside provides. If you're looking for some sea therapy, this might be the perfect place for you. The climate is another thing to consider. The sea, like any large surface of water, does a great job of balancing the temperatures. Mediterranean sea is quite warm and its bay sea (i.e. the Adriatic sea) is no exception. Swimming is not out of the question and even if you're not up for that, you can still enjoy the benefits of mild winter temperatures. One thing I love about the change of seasons is that it gives me a feeling that I'm in a whole new country. If you loved Croatia in summertime, why not try visiting it in wintertime? Moreover, the accommodation is obviously m…
As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas. A bit of formal wear inspiration for my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that. That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…
