Fashion illustration of the day / Modna ilustracija dana (bikini)


It is certainly not too early to start thinking about beachwear. Spring will be here before we know it. Those of you who follow me on Instagram have already had the chance of seeing this illustration. This olive bikini I illustrated is from Lucy Bea, an  independent designer from USA (check out her site here). She has some cute designs on her page. This fashion illustration was my entry for a giveaway. This was the first time I entered a giveaway of this kind, it was fun. Anyway, the medium is watercolour on paper. Sorry for the quality of images, the lighting conditions haven't been that great, you know rainy days.... That's all for today. Have a lovely weekend!


Svakako nije prerano da počnemo razmišljati o kupaćima. Proljeće će stići ovdje prije nego što se snađemo. Oni od vas koji me prate na Instagramu su već imali priliku vidjeti ovu ilustraciju. Ovaj maslinasti bikini koji sam ilustrirala je od neovisne američke dizajnerice  Lucy Bea (njena stranica ovdje). Ima stvarno slatkih kreacija. Ova modna ilustracija je bila moja prijava za darivanje. Ovo mi je bio prvi put da sam se priključila nekom takvom darivanju. Bilo je zabavno. Uglavnom, medij su vodene boje na papiru. Žao mi je zbog loše kvalitete slika, prirodno svjetlo baš i nije nešto zadnjih dana, kišni dani i tako to....  To bi bilo sve za danas. Ugodan vikend vam želim!

  1. That is a cute bikini! :) With my post-pregnancy body I can't fit into any of my bikini tops...haha. I'm lucky I have the bikini I wore in pregnancy that still fits. Hopefully once I've stopped breastfeeding I'll be able to get back into my large bikini collection! :)

    Good luck with the competition you drew this for too! :)

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  8. A wonderful illustration! You so rarely see fashion illustrations of swimwear and/or lingerie and so it's lovely to see your interpretation of this gorgeous olive design. You're quite right too about Spring being just around the corner, meaning Summer is just a stretch away - I can't wait for warmer, sunnier days!!

    1. you're right! You don't see them that often. I only did one bikini illustration prior to this, my reference being one ad from Calzedonia.

  10. Ja volim letnje teme u svako doba godine :) Bikini je stvarno presladak! Boja i model su savršeni, a trakice ga čine posebno zanimljivim. Tvoja verzija je fenomenalana! Tako si sve verno prikazala, a uz tvoj prepoznatljiv stil. Mislim da nije lako postići obe karaktersitike ;)

  11. It's definitely not too early for thinking of bikinis, dear Ivana! And I loved the illustration, and the bikini as well! How fun it is to enter a giveaway with an illustration, that's great! A very good idea! I liked the color, green is a color of hope, of nature, I love it! Hope you have a very beautiful weekend, dear Ivana, full of lovely things! Hugs!

  15. Dearest Ivana,
    I can hardly believe that spring will come soon, because it is now bitterly cold again, but I like your bikini girl drawing very well! (And the bikini is chic!)

  17. Lucy Bea has some really great designs. I clicked and noticed she's out of Napa, Cali. We are literally neighbors as she's only an hour away from me. Speaking of Spring, you jinxed it cos it felt just a tad Springy today.I even used the air conditioner today for the first time this year. It'd probably be cold again tomorrow but at least we enjoyed today.

    Another fabulous illustration! I love seeing the inspiration right next to it and you were spot on! Simply amazing Ivana!

  18. Such a lovely illustrations, and good luck in the giveaway, hun! Hope you win - you deserve it! :D I always stayed away from bikinis, I just never felt comfortable wearing a two piece! I think, this year I might, though. It's all about finding one that suits you best, so I've been hunting for that perfect bikini! <3 xoxo

  20. Dear Ivana, you are so right! Honestly, I don't really like it to buy new bikinis and I'm always happy when I have at least one bikini I like it to wear :) The bikini you illustrated is beautiful and your illustration turned out very great! Thanks a lot for sharing and enjoy the weekend!

  22. I really like the way you have captured the movement of her hair in the sea breeze, a very clever example of evoking movement in a painting!

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…

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…
