Illustrating a Catwalk Look From Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2018 (Fashion illustration of the Day: Watercolour)

Hello there! Today I will share two of my fashion illustrations with you. I illustrated two outfits from Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2018 collection. Both of these designs are predominately yellow and black. I think I see a trend here. If you recall, the last runaway fashion illustration I shared was of a black and yellow dress from Miu Miu collection. Well, if designers like the same colour combo as myself, I'm not complaining. I've always loved yellow, so I'm only happy that it's trending.

The reason why I decided to illustrate two outfits from this Louis Vuitton collection is because the collection impressed me greatly. I must admit that in the past, I didn't really pay that much attention to this brand, but this collection made me see the error of my ways. French design is often beautiful, and this collection is really top notch. As I explain, I always watch the collection I want to illustrate on YouTube, and while I was watching this one, my jaw literally dropped. In addition, I loved the way the models wore the bags the wrong way (upside down). I wonder will it become a trend?

Not only were the designs from this collection absolutely beautiful, I loved the materials used and the contrast between the refined cuts and unorthodox materials. The collection is elegant, but still very eye-catching. I had to google the designer Nicolas Ghesquière  (he is a handsome guy, isn't it?) and then I realized- Hey, wait, I know his designs. He is the guy who turned Balenciaga into what it is today. He's that guy who is known for the contrast effect. My kind of guy. Anyhow, a quick search revealed that Nicolas joined Louis Vouitton ages ago (in 2013). Ups, I guess I wasn't paying that much attention. But I'm paying attention now. It's never too late to learn something new, right? I've never claimed that I'm an expert or fashion insider of any kind, I'm just a girl who loves fashion and has managed to keep this blog active for years. Besides, there are a lot of things going on in a fashion world, it's hard to keep track. 

If I had time, I would illustrate the entire collection. Seriously, this designer knows what he is doing. Louis Vuitton brand is lucky to have him. This collection is absolutely gorgeous, do have a look at it if you have time. Who knows maybe I will find time and I will illustrate the entire collection? In the meantime, I'm sharing these two illustrations of mine. The medium is watercolour on paper. I'm not sure are they really finished or not. Sometimes it is hard to tell. I might add some finishing touches. My husband (always the critic) said that the legs on the model on the left look like two sticks. I still need to fill in one of the faces. It's possible I will give these two designs another try. I might try to illustrate them in another medium. Either way, I'll keep you posted.

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…
