Vivienne Isabel Swire.

Vivienne Isabel Swire a.k.a. Vivienne Westwood velja za eno najbolj kontroverznih modnih oblikovalk na svetu, brez dlake na jeziku.
Zaslovela  je v poznih 1970-ih, ko je začela oblikovati videze punk rock gibanja. Vedno bila “before fashion”, ni le vplivala na razvoj mode, pogosto jo je kar narekovala.

Rojena v Derbyshire-ju, Angliji, kjer je živela skromno otroštvo, ni poznala umetnostnih knjig in nikoli ni stopila v gledališče ali galerijo. Vse to se je spremenilo, ko je po svojem prvem zakonu z Derekom Westwoodom spoznala Malcolma McLarena, študenta umetnosti in bogočega managerja punk skupine Sex Pistols. Skupaj sta ustvarila butik leta 1971 v Londonu, kjer so njeni kosi zaživeli.  V svoji več desetletni modni karieri je osvojila dve nagradi Angleškega oblikovalca leta in ustvarila nešteto modnih smernic.

Zanimal jo je modni punk fenomen, katerega je s svojim glasom tudi dogradila. Tipične kričeče kolekcije, polne raznih potiskov, klasične silhuete močnih barv, odbiti čevlji in frizura nam vedno znova jemljejo dih.

“It’s a philosophy of life. A practice. If you do this, something will change, what will change is that you will change, your life will change, and if you can change you, you can perhaps change the world.” (Vivienne Westwood)

YVES SAINT LAURENT.

Leta 1983 se je zapisal v zgodovino modne umetnosti, saj je bil prvi živi modni oblikovalec, kateri je prejel samostojno razstavo v Metropolitanskem muzeju umetnosti v New Yorku.
Tokrat pišem o Yves Saint Laurentu, o življenju modne ikone in umetnika, brez katerega svet mode danes nedvomno ne bi bil isti.
Rodil se je leta1936, vendar je že kot najstnik odšel v Pariz, kjer je pod budnim očesom Christiana Diorja ustvarjal nepopisno dobre kreacije.

V naslednjih dveh desetletjih je Saint Laurent sedel na vrhu modnega sveta. Modeli in igralke so hrepenele po njegovih stvaritvah. Žensko garderobo je opremil z blazerji, prosojnimi bluzami in tradicionalnimi kombinezoni.

Poti, ki nas vodijo do uspeha pa vendarle niso vedno lahke. Saint Laurent se je kot večni borec boril proti odvisnosti od alkohola in kokaina.
V začetku leta 1990 je našel trdnejše temelje. Grunge gibanje in njegove večne kreacije so ponovno zasule modno elito in požele uspehe na modnih pistah.

Še danes prevladuje kot močna skala za vse modne navdušence, ter postavlja merila umetnosti. Njegova vztrajna, vznemerljiva in unikatna življenska pot nas lahko nauči, da si življenje moraš graditi, kamen za kamnom.
Yves Saint Laurent je zaradi bolezni umrl v Parizu, 1. junija 2008.
Letošnja kolekcija jesen/zima me je ponovno popolnoma prevzela. Lesketajoči čevlji, večna črnina, tradicionalne prosojne buze in pozornost do detajlov. Čutimo lahko pridih grunge gibanja, ki prevladuje na ulicah po celem svetu.

Bravery.


There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me.

As life changes direction, I'll flow with it.


When life suddenly turns in the unexpected direction, the fact is that (at the most difficult moments) you have to break through the stone wall. Also, when there's a remarkable offer of achieving your unrealistic dreams, seize the moment and live those dreams. Life is like building a house, brick after brick.

There are always barriers in life which makes you stronger and you have an opportunity to learn from them. 
I'm generally an optimist, so my glass is usually half full. Even when things drag me down in negativity, it usually doesn't take me very long to climb back up and realize that now in life I have far more positives than negatives.

We must be willing to let go of the life we planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

(Joseph Campbell)

Skrivnosti "pike na i"!

Zdi se mi, da modni svet potrebuje pogled na modo iz nove perspektive, nekaj svežega. Sara Jelen, nadobudna blogerka, manekenka, muza fotografa Matica Kosa in ena izmed mojih najljubših damic je lahko temu kos. Samo opazujem kako sestavlja fresh outfite, kateri mi obrnejo modni svet na glavo, ter izgledajo kot da se potika po ulicah Londona, ne po Ljubljani.

Kot je sama že večkrat zatrdila, njeni dnevni videzi so spontani. Kot, da bi imela več osebnosti. »Moj osebni stil se popolnoma razlikuje od dneva do dneva. Oblečem se točno tako, kot se v tistem trenutku počutim, niham pa med dark-rock videzi in elegantimi, šik videzi.«, je Sara potrdila.

Predstavljam vam kratek intervju, ter le nekaj njenih božanskih vsakodnevnih stylingov, katere lahko posnemate in jih lahko nosite tudi z nizkimi elegantnimi sandali. Ni pomembno ali ste visoke, drage dame, ali malo manjše, nadzor lahko prevzamete s samozavestjo!

PINK.

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
(Audrey Hepburn)

Paul Fredrick.

I usually write about female fashion, but this time I could not resist a friendly invitation from another continent, by lovely Valerie Williams, Content Coordinator at Paul Fredrick. 

When I read fashion story about Paul Fredrick I get the feeling that this is the secret for success: "Our goal is to offer you apparel that fits you, your lifestyle, and your budget." Decades ago, in 1989, a small internet shop was founded. Now, millions of men who wear their comfortable and quality clothes are impressed and enjoying their timeless designs.
As they insisted on quality products (which every wardrobe needs) and customer satisfaction, they are separated from the average.
Each PF customer at least for a moment forget about his age, because clothes exude youth. They push the envelope of everyday look as well as clothing for special occasions, where you can shine.
Also they are still upgrading its extensive product range with sport coats, sweaters, shoes, accessories, pants and cufflinks.
Their perseverance, desire for diversity and success, it can be an example to every artist, entrepreneur and fashion designer who wants to achieve their dreams.
Without an awareness of how it will affect thousands of people, the long-standing tradition will never abandon your sense of style.

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

Chanel imperij.


Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel se je rodila leta 1883, čeprav je sama rada poudarila, da se je rodila leta 1893.

Bila je znana po vztrajnosti, abicioznosti in neverjetni energiji. Če bi odprli svojo omaro, bi v njej brez dvoma našli vsaj en kos, kateri je sledil njeni modni viziji. S svojim unikatnim podpisom pod tradicionalnimi Chanel kostimi in majhnimi črnimi oblekicami je ustvarila brezčasni design.

Njena pariška vizija je ustvarila “manj je več” modno pravilo (poleg številnih drugih). Bila je prva modna oblikovalka, ki je moška oblačila preobrazila v ženske nosljive obleke in dame razbremenila trdih korzetov in s tem ustvarila modernizem v modi. Ko je v dvajsetih letih preteklega stoletja ponudila svojo najbolj prepoznavno dišavo Chanel No.5 (saj je 5 njena najljubša številka), je postala senzacija. “Parfum je neviden, nepozaben, pika na i v modi in napoveduje tvoj prihod in podaljšuje tvoj odhod.”, je Coco razložila.

Svoj prvi butik je odprla v letu 1910 na pariškem Rue Cambon, kjer je sprva prodajala klobuke. Ko je nekega hladnega dne moško spodnjo majico (iz jersey-a) preoblikovala v oblekico, pa je zaslovela. Kreirala je tudi drese ruskih balerin.
”The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”, Je Coco Chanel razglasila. In se je tega tudi držala.
Po njeni smrti je leta 1982 postal kreativni direktor modne hiše Chanel Karl Lagerfeld.

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. (Coco Chanel)

Sixties: Glory decade.

There has never been a decade quite like the sixties. "Buster browns" shoes, box dresses, conservative looks (think Jackie Onassis), Brigitte Bardot, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Soda Pop came in glass bottles, Woodstock, Andy Warhol, flower children, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and last but not least Lesley Hornby.

Lesley Lawson (Hornby), widely known by the nickname Twiggy.
Even though her success was controversial at the time, she remains not only a fashion touchstone, but has also, managed to stay relevant and productive for decades.
1967 was the year of the vulnerable, unvarnished, and most astonishing of all: the impossibly young face of Twiggy.
in the swingin’ 60s as a model icon and revolutionized the fashion world


She revolutionized fashion world with her boyishly cropped hair, faint spray of freckles and huge, wide-open eyes. In the decades to come, Twiggy went on to become a singer, an actress (both stage and screen) and a television personality.
Women dressed in a very feminine fashion. Dainty accessories, perfectly placed hairdos and classic silhouettes ruled. In 1963 first came the deeply plunging necklines introduced in Paris spring collections. Pale lipsticks and nail polish replaced the vivid shades. Youth continued to set the pace for fashion. Enter 1966, where the look was much more sleek and modern. The lines were sharper and more form-fitting. The belt did not define the waist anymore, instead it created a new “fit and flare” attitude.

Gorgeous baby blue.


A timeless classic maxi skirt should have a place in every woman's wardrobe. It can be embellished & accessorized in any way, in your own style so you can make your fashion statement. The best thing is that ican be made from any kind of material.

I can hardly sit still. I am amazed by this lovely model Anela who is wearing my latest piece (Dunja.). She pulled off such a perfect combination and I am so grateful for this collaboration. I chose a white cotton lining which I enriched with a light baby blue fabric. I added gray-blue ribbon as the final conclusion of this piece. 
This lady added strength and energy to the skirt. I admire her as a person and her fashion journey which has been carved over the years. Check out her fashion page.

My life is like a box of crayons that color my world.

Everywhere I turn, I'm seeing tartan prints.
I'm mostly not in the mood when it comes to patterns but I love this tartan shirt. The weather is so kind, I can hear the leaves rocking on the trees and everything that surrounds you is the sun.

None but ourselves can free our minds. (Bob Marley)

Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world. (Lao)

Miro Mišljen: Tako svet vidim jaz.

Dovolite si sanjati in tem sanjam slediti. Vse kar sanjaš, po čemer hrepeniš lahko osvojiš. Le slediti moraš svojim mislim o uspehu in vztrajati. Dih jemajoče kreacije, ki plešejo po modni poti in kreator le teh, umetnik Miro Mišljen, me je ponovno prepričal, da je moda pravi pomen umetnosti. Različne teksture, pisana paleta barv, silhuete in ogrlice Miro, ki se zlijejo v harmonijo, so me tako fascinirale, da nisem mogla odmakniti pogleda, saj je bil celoten show perfekcija.
Občudujem njegovo predanost delu, vztrajnost in prijaznost. Pogovor z njim me je navdihnil in spodbudil, da moram resnično slediti svojim sanjam, ne glede na vzpone in padce.

1.)Prebrala sem, da je John Galliano tvoj najljubši modni oblikovalec. Te je tudi on navdušil, da si se začel ukvarjati z modnim oblikovanjem, za to pot?
Vsekakor. John Galliano in Vivienne Westwood sta mi modo predstavila zanimivo, saj njune kolekcije vsebujejo pisane kose, ki so me pritegnili.
2.) Kje si našel inspiracijo za letošnjo kolekcijo jesen/zima in koliko časa si potreboval od ideje do zaključka kolekcije?
Letošnjo kolekcijo sem predstavil kot avtoportret, svoja čustva, občutja, kaj razmišljam, kako vidim svet in kako se počutim. Potreboval pa sem približno 6 mesecev.
3.)Kateri kos pa se ti zdi da je obvezen (»must have«) kos za vsako žensko omaro in zakaj?
Vsekakor oblekica, »little dress«, saj je elegantna, preprosta, ženstvena in poudarja žensko.
4.)Se ti zdi da so slovenske estradnice modno osveščene?
Mislim, da ne. Med izjemami je Tjaša Kokalj.
5.)Imaš svojo najljubšo modno ikono, blogerko, na katero moramo biti pozorni?
Bolj malo sledim modi, raje sledim umetnosti, saj jo občudujem.
6.)Tvoje najljubše modno pravilo, zapoved?
Bodi to kar si, nosi tisto kar čutiš, da se dobro počutiš.
7.)Tvoj najljubši spomin vezan na tvojo modno pot?
Nepozabni začetki, prve modne revije, euforija, živčnost.
8.)Tudi sama sem pri 20ih letih odprla svoj butik. Bi mogoče dali kakšen nasvet tistim, ki se odločilo za tako velik korak?
Sledite svojim sanjam, ne poslušajte drugih, poslušajte sebe, z mislijo da boste uspeli. Sledite svojemu notranjemu glasu. Vztrajajte!


Miro, hvala ti še enkrat za tvojo prijaznost, inspiracijo in čas. Vedno znova me navdihneš s svojimi kolekcijami, katere so nepozabne.

A relationship is like couture. If it doesn't fit perfectly, it's a disaster. (SATC)


Friendships, relationships are not always perfect. Sometimes they need to crash and reboot. But just the solid relationships can survive. I am so lucky for every fight, tears, laughter, scary and happy moments. Without each one of my ladies and my love I would not be where I am today.

And thank you all for that.

I got to thinking, why do we always hear and believe just the negative things people say about us? We have to crush those people voices and take the good (or negative) words of our closest to our heart.
For some people life seems effortless and simple. Do you think that they let themselves sink or do they keep on swimming?
 >A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.<

Bodies never lie.

Now I am going to reveal to you something which is very pure, a totally white thought. It is always in my heart, it blooms at each of my steps... The Dance is love, it is only love, it alone, and that is enough... I, then, it is amorously that I dance: to poems, to music but now I would like to no longer dance to anything but the rhythm of my soul.
(Isadora Duncan)
