Who's that chick? Who's that chick?

Bok svima!! :) // God day everyone!! :)

Svi znamo da je veljača najkraći mjesec u godini. Eh, pa ta fina 2 dana koja su oduzeta (prijestupna godina je!!!) su mi taman falila da napravim dobar intervju. I zato kasnim ta dva dana. Ali odužujem Vam se izrazito zanimljivim sugovornicama i kvalitetnim materijalom!!

As february is the shortest month in the year, I really needed 2 more days to finish my interview. And now, 2 days after the first of the month, I'm featuring this stylish interview. :P I swear, it's very cool and vintage (a-ha, one clue!!).

Moje ovomjesečne sugovornice su dvije mlade (i PREzgodne) dame iz južnog nam grada Splita. Taj duo se sastoji od Emine Štrkljević i Margite Videtić. Ne zvone baš imena?! Eh, pa sigurno Vam zvoni ime njihovog brenda- Chicks On Chic!


My 2 guests for February are 2 young, chic & beautiful ladies from Split. They are Margita Videtić & Emina Štrkljević. Doesn't ring a bell?! Well, I bet the name of their brand rings a bell. It's 'Chicks On Chic'!!


Margita i Emina poznate su po redizajniranju vintage odjeće, a također i dizajniraju te izrađuju odlične modne dodatke (ovratnike i remenje). Stvarno imaju originalan koncept brenda i upravo su me zato oduševile. Nadam se skoro i bacanju u muške vode! ˆˆ

They are known for their redesigning of vintage clothing, and also for their great accessories (belts & collars) they design and make from vintage stuff (ties & shirts). I find the whole concept of their brand very innovative and original, and that's the reason I'm amazed with them. I really hope they're planning on making a men's line. :)

evo i intervjuaaa...// here's the interview...


1. Tko stoji iza imena Chicks On Chic? // Who's hiding behind the brand 'Chicks On Chic'?


Iza imena Chicks on chic se kriju dvije prijateljice od djetinjstva, Emina Štrkljević i Margita Videtić.

Chicks On Chic is a fashion duo consisting of childhood friends, Emina Štrkljević & Margita Videtić.

2. Kako je cijela Chicks On Chic priča započela?// How did the 'Chicks On Chic' story came to life?

Sve je započelo tako što smo skužile da imamo previše vintage robice i potrebu da negdje ispoljimo sve ideje koje su nam se motale po glavi, pa smo onako sebi za gušt "preuredile" nekoliko komada. To je vidjela naša prijateljica i predložila nam da stvari pofotkamo i stavimo na Facebook, šta smo i napravile. Reakcije su bile i više nego dobre i to je za nas bio znak da radimo nešto lijepo, što se ljudima sviđa. Bile smo jako sretne zbog toga i sa zadovoljstvom nastavile raditi dalje!

It all started when we realized that we have too many vintage pieces, and then got a need to express our ideas we had for a long time. So, we just remade a few of them. One of our friends saw it, and told us that we should put the photos of the stuff on Facebook, which we did. After some time, we got really positive feedback, and that was a sign of acceptance. We also found the positive feedback as the sign for us to continue with making 'Chicks On Chic' stuff. And so we did!


3. Jeste li zadovoljni napretkom vašeg brenda do sada? // Are you happy with the progress of your brand up until now?

Da, jako smo zadovoljne napretkom!


Yes, we're absolutely satisfied!

4. Što smatrate najvećim dosadašnjim uspjehom? // What do you see as your greatest success up to date?


Najvećim uspjehom smatramo ono zadovoljstvo kad vidimo nekoga da nosi ono što smo mi napravili!


The success we find the greatest is the happyness of our clients when wearing our stuff.

5. Koju poznatu (svjetsku i domaću) osobu biste htjeli odijenuti? // Which Croatian and international celebrities would you like to dress?

Uh! Ovo je teško pitanje... Možda P.J. Harvey i Florence Welch, a od naših Ivanku Mazurkijević!!


Now this is a tough one... Perhaps we'd choose P.J. Harvey and Florence Welch, and as for the croatian celebrities we'd choose Ivanka Mazurkijević!!



6. Što slušate dok dizajnirate? // What do you listen to whilst designing?

Slušamo puno muzike, od Arsena Dedića do Radioheada, a zadnje vrijeme u našoj maloj radionici svira najčešće radio!


We listen to all kinds of music, from Arsen Dedić to Raidohead, but lately our workshop is filled with the sounds of the radio!

7. Što vas inspirira? // What inspires you?


Inspirira nas muzika, filmovi, ljudi, hrana... Inspirira nas onaj adrenalin kad dođeš na buvljak, prostor u kojem radimo, dućan u kojem kupujemo trake i perlice, naši prijatelji, đir po gradu kad je sunce...


We're inspired by music, movies, people, food... We're inspired by the rush of the flea market, our workroom, the store where we buy the trimmings and beads... We're inspired by our friends, the sunny day and a walk...


8. Vogue ili blog? // Vogue or blog?


Volimo i jedno i drugo!

We love both!

9. Koji su Vaši najdraži blogovi? // Which are your favourite blogs?

Pokušavamo pratiti sve što se događa na našoj i stranoj modnoj sceni, pa tako i modne blogove! Od naših blogova najviše pratimo Little Fashion Paradise, Style and Coffee, Croator.net, Misslikey, a od stranih Style Rookie, The Man Repeller, The Drifter and the Gypsy, Retro chick ...


We try to follow everything that happens on the croatian and the international fashion scene, including the blogs! Our favourite croatian blogs are Little Fashion ParadiseStyle and CoffeeCroator.net and Misslikey. Out of the foreign blogs our favs are Style RookieThe Man RepellerThe Drifter and the GypsyRetro Chick...




10. Planovi za budućnost? // Plans for the future?

U buduće planiramo raditi svoju odjeću koja će biti u vintage/grunge štihu, imamo puno planova i za ovratnike koji će biti nešto drugačiji nego do sada, te još hrpu ideja za ljeto...Vidjet ćete!


We're planning on doing our one clothing line that would be inspired by vintage clothing and grunge. We have a lot of plans for the collars which will be a bit different from the ones we have now. We also have a lot of ideas for the summer... You shall see!



11. Poruka sadašnjim i budućim fanovima… // A message for your current and future fans...



Svima veliko hvala šta prate naš rad i trudit ćemo se da budemo još bolje...


Big thanks to everyone for following our work! We will try to be even better...



etogac... Osim što imaju odličan ukus u blogove s kojim sam i više nego oduševljen, cure izrađuju odlične stvari za zaista svakoga. Odlično je to što je svaki komad unikatan i poseban i znate da nitko nema takav. Bravo cure, i samo tako dalje! Hvala na intervjuu i sretno! :*

and that's that... Well, except of their great taste in fashion blogs (I'm absolutely thrilled with their choices), they have an impeccable taste when talking about clothes too. The thing about 'Chicks on Chic' is that every piece is unique, and you know nobody else has one like yours. Well done girls, rock on! Thankies for the interview, and good luck! :*

ciao!!
