De Stijl


Moda (ni)je umetnost. Previše pretenciozna tvrdnja za jedan kampanjski vođen blog. Esencija konzumerizma ili l'art de vivre, nebitno je - za (n)ovu sezonu treba samo da skinete prašinu sa udžbenika istorije umetnosti i bestidno počnete da prepisujete, da ne kažem - preslikavate! Ako je mogao veliki Yves Saint Laurent šezdesetih, zašto ne bismo i mi?

Fashion is (not) art. Casually written blog such as this doesn't deserve such a pretentious claim. Whether it's the essence of consumerism or l'art de vivre - the only thing to remember this season are high school art classes. Dust off your art history books and start copying shamelessly! If it could have worked for the great Yves Saint Laurent, why wouldn't it for us?

No Rest


Dobar izgovor da (i ja) postujem Lykke. Može i sa š.

Bilo je odmora, iako pesma kaže drugačije. Obaveze, obaveze a ne želim da ovaj blog postane jedna od njih. Ovo smo se Ivana, Dunja i ja sunčale još pre koju nedelju, no, još nije (pre)kasno za kaput. Pogotovo ovakav. Ideja moja, a zlatne ruke Desine. Beli materijal od jedne druge Milice, kao lepa uspomena koju uvek mogu da obučem.

Excuse good enough to post Lykke. 

After a while, in spite of the lyrics. A lot of have to's recently and I surely don't want this blog to become one. This is Ivana, Dunja et moi catching some rays from couple of weeks ago. Luckily it's not too late for the coat. Especially this one. The idea was mine, but it was my otherworldly seamstress Desa who made this monochromatic dream a reality.

Haute Run


Patike. Na couture reviji. Možda kao dve rečenice, teško u jednoj. Na ready-to-wear piste ušunjale su se, (da ne kažem utrčale :) još pre koju godinu, da bismo ih mi na ulicama oberučke prihvatili. Recept je jednostavan - obučete se dressy dressy, a onda modnu rečenicu završite sasvim neočekivano - patikama. Volim svoje New Balansice jer ih ne mrzim kada kasnim. Okej, dodela Oskara se bliži, ali na dijabetično sladunjavu čipku i šljokice koje obično viđamo na haute couture revijama imam samo da kažem - zeeeev. Unisex kolekcija Rada Houranija svakako je ispisala novo poglavlje u couture svetu, ali ne morate imati revoluciju svake sezone. Nekada je mali gest, detalj ili doza (modnog) humora savršeno dovoljna da najavi neke nove vetrove, neko novo doba. Aplauz za Karla i Rafa, što su (još jednom) dokazali da raditi za Chanel i Dior ne znači - biti uštogljen.

Sneakers. On a couture catwalk. Two things you wouldn't likely put in one sentence. They've crawled into (or should I say - run into :) the ready-to-wear world couple of seasons ago,  only to become the ubiquitous part of sporty luxe street chic. The recipe is quite simple - put on something überdressy and then finish that fashion sentence unexpectedly - with sneakers. I love my New Balances because I don't (have to) hate them when I'm running late. The Oscars might be approaching, but I can only yawn when I see the usual haute couture staples - the amount of lace and sequins alone could easily cause diabetes if watched for too long. Rad Hourani's unisex collection has surely made a tectonic change in the haute couture world, but you can't (and don't have to) have revolution everyday. Sometimes, it just takes some little gesture, quirky detail or the right sense of (fashion) humor to announce that the winds are going to change. A bit of applause, please, for Mr. Lagerfeld and Mr. Simons, for proving (once again) that working for Chanel or Dior doesn't mean - being stuffy.
