Fashion illustration of the day (olive flared jeans: green trend report)

I'm back with another original fashion illustration and design (the medium is watercolour on paper). This illustrated outfit is all about layering. Besides olive flare jeans, our blonde is sporting a jacket, a turtleneck and a cardigan over it. A nice faux fur scarf is a great way to add some drama into a winter outfit. In addition, she opted for black high heels, beanie and a little bag to dress up those jeans a little. What do you think about this outfit proposal? Would you wear something like this? Do you like the combination of colours (brown, dark orange, olive green and black)? Do you like pointy heels? I've just got a pair of pointy heels yesterday. You know, I've started to actively search for (and sometimes even attempting making) things I illustrate. I guess that is a proof how creating art can set our creative juices going. It can all be connected you know. Creative work that is. We don't have to put borders everywhere and divide everything all the time. Sometimes we should just let things flow and stop worrying about whether something is considered banal or deep. Perhaps there are no deep or shallow jobs or hobbies, there are only deep or shallow people. Life is what you make of it.

Sometimes I like to add backgrounds to my fashion illustration. Location illustrating is something I want to work on more this year. The background for this illustration is based on Croatian coastline, more precisely municipality Lastovo (google it if you want to see more). Lastovo municipality consists of 46 islands and it is a part of Dubrovnik- Neretva county in Croatia. The largest of these islands is Lastovo. The name of the largest town on Lastovo island is also Lastovo. This is sometimes the case with Croatian islands, the largest settlement being named the same as the island (for example the famous island Hvar). There are more than a thousand islands in Croatia (the number varies according to classifications criteria and whether or not you count small islands but it is a big number), so if islands are your thing, Croatia is a pretty good choice.

  1. Belle questi illustrazioni

  2. Your drawings really remind me of my moms, I forgot to mentioned this previously, one of the reasons why I love them so much too.
    I can imagine this on a model all cozy with those winter layers ^^

  3. I love a flaired pant! Great styling! It is inspiration for an outfit. You should consider fashion designing. You're good :D

  4. Bè direi che scegliendo il mare della Croazia come sfondo per la tua illustrazione non avresti potuto trovare di meglio!
    La Croazia ha un mare meraviglioso e le isolette sono una più bella dell'altra, ricorda molto la Grecia!
    Bellissimo il contrasto di colori che hai creato! :)

  5. So nice

  6. Great post.

  7. While I may not be a fan of the cold weather, I do enjoy layering as it poses a fun and creative fashion challenge to balance style with staying warm . This outfit you illustrated is a nice combination of colors and I'm imagining the textures would be quite fun as well :)

  8. I like islands. Lastovo looks nice.

  9. Very nice! Looks incredible!
    Happy Wednesday, babe!

  13. Dear Ivana, thank you for sharing another beautiful fashion illustration! I totally would wear such a look and it makes me smile that I'm wearing today a similar look (I showed it already last year on my blog): Yellow fur scarf, black pants, black ankle boots and grey cardigan :) Have a wonderful start into the weekend!

  15. How fun you're planning on working more on your background illustrations, it must be so exciting constantly developing your skills and expanding on your go-to's! This fashion illustration is lovely, it has serious Chloé vibes about it - especially thanks to that extra long brown scarf! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, Ivana :)

  16. Wow, such a lovely look! I love the attention to detail and the background!

  18. LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfit you're proposing for this illustration, is beyond amazing and I have seen a lot of jeans and pants similar to this, the unfortunately thing is that you need to be kinda tall in order to look good of them don't you think? :( Anyway I think nowadays we have a lot of different proposals when it comes to clothes in order to stop wearing the same kind of pants :p


  19. great design Ivana. i love this looooonnnng scarf...;-)

    i also like the background of this painting. looks like a beautiful waterside.

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…
