Some of my special fashion memories belong to a Croatian fashion designer called Katarina Smolić and her brand Obekei. Last season I collaborated with her on a campaign shoot which was one of my first freelance styling gigs, and it was an amazing first experience.
This season, Katarina continued to follow her own vision of urban fashion for urban people. This collection called Opposite of black 14 is a sportier version and a cleaner sequel of her past work - black&white with metallic details, simple sportswear that feels extremely luxe. As a person that hates to wear sportswear outside sports venues, I'm amazed how versatile the collection looks with its unisex silhouettes absolutely everyone can wear. I personally love how Obekei represents young fashion that doesn't have to be pretentious or overwrought - simple, yet cool is the way to go.
This young designer knows her own public, and with each collection she gets to offer her own fans clothing that's more approachable to their own aesthetic. I'm positive many skater-alterna-hipsters are going to wear the clothes, but I'm also sure some of her basic yet fashionable pieces are going to find their way to my own wardrobe.
