fashion icon. taylor tomasi hill



OPASKA: AKO SE U IDUĆIH NEKOLIKO MINUTA NE ZALJUBITE, NISTE ČOVJEK. (šala!)

Taylor Tomasi Hill jedna je od najljepših žena u svijetu mode. Trenutna urednica 'style & accessories' odjela u američkom Marie Claire magazinu umjetnička direktorica online giganta Moda Operandi predstavlja ideal fashionistice - osoba sa stilom, igra se modom i stajlinzima istovremeno zadržavajući osobnu viziju. Ne želim trošiti previše riječi jer takav stil, poznavanje mode i ljepota ne traže pojašnjenja. Uživajte u fotografijama - znam da ih ima previše i da je ovo svojevrsni 'fashion overdose', ali jednostavno ne mogu opisati osjećaj koji prolazi kroz mene kad gledam TTH fotke. 

Ako Vam treba još TTH droge - u google upišite njezino ime i ući ćete u jednu bezizlaznu bajku.

Priznajem, ovisan sam o Taylor Tomasi Hill.
____________

NOTE: IF YOU DON'T FALL IN LOVE IN THE NEXT FEW MINUTES, YOU'RE NOT HUMAN. (JK!)

Taylor Tomasi Hill is one of the most beautiful women in the world of fashion. She's the current editor of the style & accessories for the U.S. edition of Marie Claire magazine artistic director at Moda Operandi, but she's also the perfect example of a fashionista - a beautiful person with style, playing with fashion while maintaining her personal vision. I do not want to waste too many words because a style like hers, her knowledge of fashion and her beauty doesn't need any excuses or justifications. Enjoy the photos - I know that there are too many of them and that this kind of a 'fashion overdose' but I just can't describe the feeling that passes through me when I go through photos of TTH. 

If you need more TTH drugs - google her name and you'll enter an endless tale of fashion.

I admit, I'm addicted to Taylor Tomasi Hill.

Kako ste već mogli i zaključiti po razini osobnog divljenja ovoj crvenokosoj dami, obožavam sve njezine outfite stoga je odabir za najbolji bio jako težak. Najbliže je došla kombinacija retro cvjetne midi haljine i bajkerske jakne te look inspiriran školskom uniformom - oversized vesta s bijelim kvadratima, mini suknjica i thigh-high čizme.

No, pobjedila su dva looka istog dizajnera koja najbolje izgledaju upravo na Taylor. Savršene Commes des Garçons predimenzionirane dvodimenzionalne kreacije zasjale su na ovoj ljepotici i dokazali kako ona može nositi BAŠ SVE. Bravo Taylor! 
__________

As you might have already noticed, due to the high level of personal admiration for this ginger lady, I absolutely adore all of her outfits so it was very hard to define which one is the best. The close 2nd and 3rd were the combination of a retro floral midi dresses and a biker jacket, and the school uniform inspired look - a checked oversized sweater, a pleated mini skirt and a pair of thigh-high boots.

However, the winners were two looks from the same designer, whose creations and Taylor make a perfect combo. Commes des Garçons' oversized two-dimensional garments literally shine on this beauty, and by wearing them she made a clear point she can handle just about anything. Way to go Taylor!


Koji je njezin look Vama najbolji? Jeste se navukli? 

Ja jedva čekam idući fashion week da vidim što će ponovno izvesti najljepša žena mode!

Taylor rodi mi dijete! < 345678
__________

What's her best look in your opinion? Are you hooked on Taylor?

I can hardly wait for the next fashion week to see what will the most beautiful woman of fashion wear!

Taylor, we must make babies! < 345678

minju kim. h&m design award 2013 winner


Minju Kim mlada je modna dizajnerica koja studira na Anwerpenškoj Kraljevskoj umjetničkoj akademiji, a upravo je osvojila i H&M nagradu za dizajn! Od brojnih prijava različitih dizajnera, njezina kolekcija zvana 'dear my friend' inspirirana japanskim manga umjetnikom zvanim Junji osvojila je H&Mov žiri, a definitivno bi osvojila i moj glas. Pobjednička kolekcija prikazana je na Mercedes Benz fashion weeku u Stockholmu.

Njezina je pobjeda sigurno i odraz H&Move posljednje odluke da prikaže kolekciju na pariškom Tjednu mode, nakon 8 godina pauze. Pričekat ćemo 27. veljače da vidimo kako će ta kolekcija izgledati.
__________

Minju Kim, a young fashion design currently studying at the Antwerp's Royal Academy of Arts, just won the H&M design award! Out of the many applicants, her collection 'dear my friend' inspired by japanese manga artist Junji won the H&M's jury, and she would definitely have got my vote too. The winner's collection was shown at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Stockholm.

Her win is a reflection of the H&M latest decision - showing a collection at the Paris Fashion Week, after 8 years of absence. We shall wait for the February the 27th when we'll see that collection.

fashion flash news. h&m summer 2013.


Zahvaljujući jednom od mojih dražih blogova - nitrolicious.com, nabasao sam na novu kolekciju mog omiljenog high street brenda - H&M za ovo ljeto.

Kombinacija 90-ih i grungea s modernim it elementima napravila je odličnu kolekciju koja će sigurno poharati svim ljetnim festivalima! 
_________

Thanks to one of my favourite blogs - nitrolicious.com, I stumbled upon the photos of the latest collection of my favourite high street brand - H&M 2013 summer.

A combination of the 90's grunge with the it & trendy elements made just a perfect collection that will take over every music festival in the world!

s/s 2013 microtrends: construction & fringe.

 Proljeće se bliži, a to znači da će uskoro i proljetni trendovi zasjati na ulicama svih modnih metropola. Nakon prvog trenda koji je mene zainteresirao (sport kao inspiracija), za oko su mi zapela dva mikro-trenda. 
___________

Spring is getting closer, and closer, which means spring trends will rule the streets of every fashion capital in the world. After the first spring/summer trend that got my attention (sportswear inspired fashion), 2 other trends caught my eye.
Resice su oduvijek bile dio disco ere, a kako se sve više vraćaju 70-e/80-e i šljokice, s njima u paketu dolazi i element resica. Neki su dizajneri pomalo doslovno prenijeli 'feel' tog razdoblja uz kombinaciju s jarkim bojama i svjetlećim materijalima dok su drugi imali svojevrstan kontradiktoran stav kombinirajući bogatstvo resica uz nježni minimalizam. Svejedno koji pristup odabrali, resice će super izgledati u proljetnoj garderobi.
_____________

The element of fringe has always been a part of the disco era in my mind, and as 70's/80's are having a comeback together with the sequins, I see the fringe heading back with them. Someof the designers are somewhat literally conveying the feel of that period with a combination of bright colors and luminescent materials, while others are having a sort of contradictory attitude while combining lux fringe with a sophisticated minimalism. It doesn't matter which approach you'll choose, but the fringe action will look great as a part of your spring wardrobe.
Konstrukcija je bila dio odjeće još u 18. stoljeće, a očito doživljava svoj comeback! Najpoznatiji dizajneri okrenuli su se otkrivanju konstrukcije i stavljanju njezinih elemenata u prvi plan. Kod nekih ima glavnu i vodeću ulogu, a kod drugih tek postoji kao jedan od elemenata. Meni osobno izgleda kao odličan i zanimljiv mikrotrend i nadam se da će se proširiti i na high-street opcije premda na prvi pogled izgleda pomalo avangardno. Vidjet ćemo! :)
__________

Bustles and crinolines have been a great part of women's fashion in 18th and 19th century, but it looks like exposing the construction is becoming a trend nowadays! Some of the greatest designers of today have decided to reveal the construction, and put its elements in the foreground. While some gave it the leading role, others used it just as a part of their garments. In my opinion, it looks like we're having a proper fashion history moment, and quite an interesting micro-trend. I hope it grabs onto the high-street fashion because, although it looks a bit avantgarde, it would look amazing on the streets. We shall see!

wishlist. bass < 3 rachel antonoff

Otkrio sam ove cipelice na svom najdražem blogu - stylebubble.co.uk. U nekoliko sam se sekundi zaljubio u apsolutno svaki model u kolekciji. Nema niti jednog para cipela iz Bass < 3 Rachel Antonoff kolekcije (iako su svi ženski modeli >.<) kojeg ne bih nosio/imao u svojoj vitrini kao umjetničko djelo. Kombinacija slatkih i modernih elemenata s pomalo klasičnim materijalima stvorili su savršenu suradnju. Ne mogu ih se nagledati, a i jedva čekam novu kolekciju! :D
__________

I discovered these shoes on one of my favourite blogs - stylebubble.co.uk. In few seconds I fell in love with all of them. There's not one pair from the Bass < 3 Rachel Antonoff collection (although they are women shoes >.<) that I wouldn't wear/have on my shelves as a piece of art. The combination of cute & modern elements mixed with a bit more classic materials made just a perfect collaboration. I can't get enough, and I can't wait for their next collaborational collection! :D

weekly roundup 2

Nakon najnapornijeg (ali pred kraj i najzabavnijeg) tjedna u već dugo dugo vremena, došlo je vrijeme za novi drugi tjedni 'sveopćemodni' pregled. Ispričavam se na nedostatku postova u proteklih par dana, ali nekako mi je trebao dan, 2 da se snormaliziram nakon stresa kolokvija/ispita

No, to je iza nas/mene pa, bacimo se na posao! :P
__________

After one of the physically/emotionally toughest (but towards the end started to get fun) weeks in a long long time, it's for the second weekly 'all-round-fashion' review. I apologize for the lack of posts over the past couple of days, but somehow I needed a day, or 2 to get my mind off the stress of the exams.


But that's behind us/me/you, so let's get back to 'work'! : P


exciting news of the week. Vanessa Paradis x H&M conscious
Nešto oko suradnji celebrityja i H&M-a u meni kao pravim primjerku produkta suvremene pop-kulture postiže razinu adrenalina ravnoj Disneyworldu. Ne znam što je toliko privlačno na cool ljudima u jeftinoj odjeći, ali mislim da pojam da je netko koga gledamo na malim/velikim ekranima nosio 'našu' odjeću daje dodatnu aromu prekrasnim H&M komadima. Ovi koje Vanessa Paradis nosi još su i conscious - aka štite prirodu! :P
__________
There's something about celebrities collaborating with H&M that makes me, a proper contemporary pop-culture product, attain the Disneyland level of adrenaline. I do not know what is so appealing in cool people wearing cheap clothes, but I think the fact that somebody famous wearing 'our' clothes adds a nice flavour to the wonderful H&M pieces. These that Vanessa Paradis is wearing are also conscious of nature! :P

'under the radar' collection. Alexis Mabille spring 2013 haute couture
Svi pričaju o Couture kolekcijama Chanela, Ulyane Sergeenko i Christiana Diora, a meni je (osim Chanela) za oko zapela Alexis Mabille Haute Couture revija - istovremeno ženstvena, na trenutke barokna, nekad renesansna, a cijelo vrijeme zaigrana i kreativna. Možda nije svačiji ukus, ali moj svakako jest. U meni stvara želju za proljećem i voćem, šarenim bombonima i ljetnim koktelima.
__________

Everybody's talking about the Couture collections of Chanel, Ulyana Sergeenko and Christian Dior, but the one collection that impressed me the most (except the Chanel, of course) was the Alexis Mabille Haute Couture show - simultaneously feminine, at times baroque-inspired, sometimes renaissance-ish, and all-round playful and creative. Maybe not everyone's taste, but it certainly is mine.  Makes me feel the desire for spring and fruit, colourful candies, and summer cocktails.


affordable fashion news. Vans Classics Chambray Pack spring 2013
Svi znaju da sam najveći fan tenisica/cipela koje poznaju i oduvijek gomilam tenisice koje ne nosim previše često, ali nekako obožavam posjedovati (luđak! :P). Ova me kolekcija Vansica oduševila zbog kombinacije njihovih klasičnih hipstersko-kulerskih modela u kombinaciji s trendy materijalima. Jedva čekam!
___________

Everyone knows I'm one of the biggest sneakers/shoes addict out there, and I always pile up sneakers that I don't wear too often, but somehow I love to own them (cray-cray, I know! :P). This spring Vans collection fascinated me because of the combination of their classic hipster-cool shape combined with the modern & trendy materials. Can't wait!

outfit(s) of the WEEK. Iva Balaban & Mirela Forić
 Trenutne 'it' žene hrvatske mode posjetile su haute couture revije i svojim instagram fotkama uzbuđivale sve fashioninstagramiste iz Hrvatske, a po revijama su oduševljavale streetstyle fotografe. Mene su ponajviše oduševile ovim Chanel lookom u kojem su glavne urednice portala Buro247.hr istovremeno pokazale dobar ukus, jednostavnost, ali istovremeno znanje i poznavanje mode. Fashion twins, oh la la!
__________

The 'IT' women of Croatia visited the Paris haute couture shows and their Instagram photos excited all of the Croatian fashioninstagramers, but also delighted the Parisian streetstyle photographers. My favourite Balaban-Foric edition was for the Chanel Couture show, where the editors-in-chief of the fashion site Buro247.hr showed good taste, simplicity, but also their fashion knowledge. Fashion twins, oh la la!

bits and pieces.

Nikad nisam volio ovakve postove. Još uvijek ih ne volim, ali su mi zanimljivi (NE PITAJTE). To je nešto što ja zovem 'slatki grijeh'. A što je slatki grijeh ako ga ne objavimo javno?  

Koliko god ne htjeli to priznati, upravo 'insta postovi' u nama potiču onog skrivenog voajera, dio naše osobnosti kojeg zanima što/kako/zašto/gdje drugi žive svoj život. 
Svoj instagram račun otvorio sam prije ljeta i to potpuno bezveze (da vidim kako to izgleda). Aplikaciju sam pobrisao s mobitela i u potpunosti zaboravio na to. Prije nekih mjesec dana došla mi je želja da vidim što mi najbolja prijateljica iz osnovnjaka (< 3 Ivana) radi po Americi pa sam ga ponovno aktivirao. 

Sad sam ovisan o Instagramu(ne skroz kao neki, ali skoro :P).
__________

I never liked this kind of blog posts. I still do not like them, but I find them interesting (DON'T ASK). It's what I'd call a guilty pleasure. And what's a guilty pleasure if you don't embrace it publicly?

As much as we don't want to admit it, 'insta' posts encourage the hidden voyeur inside of us, the part of our personality that is interested in what/how/why/where others live their lives.
I opened my Instagram account in June, just to see how it looks. I deleted the app from my phone, and completely forgot about it. About a month ago I wanted to see what my best friend from kindergarden/primary school (Ivana < 3) is doing in America so I re-activated it. 

Now I'm addicted to Instagram (not completely as some people, but still... :P).

:pepe.

Kad sam započeo pisati blog, volio sam raditi intervjue s mladim talentiranim dizajnerima nakita/asesoara/odjeće. To me nekako pustilo jer sam se u realnom svijetu počeo susretati s takvim oblicima pisanja pa sam odlučio na blogu posvetiti pažnju drugim stvarima.

No, uvijek sam na facebooku pronalazio talentirane i kreativne osobe za koje ne zna puno ljudi, a zaista bi trebali. I kako još uvijek nisam od volje za pisanjem intervjua, jedan vrlo mladi brend predstavit ću Vam kroz nekoliko fotografija i malo teksta.

:pepe je (jako) mladi brend koji je s radom počeo vrlo nedavno- 13.1.2013. I u tih tjedan dana, Petra Perković osvojila je srca mnogih ljudi. :pepe je započeo kao mini manufaktura za poklone prijateljima i prijateljicama buduće grafičke dizjanerice Petre, ali ubrzo je izrastao u nešto više. Kad su prijatelji prijatelja vidjeli te simpatične preslatke ručno oslikane šalice sa šaljivim ilustracijama i poželjeli ih naručiti Petra je učinila vrlo pametnu stvar - otvorila facebook stranicu Dućančić Pepe gdje možete pronaći i naručiti svoje favorite.

Moj je favorit hipsterski komplet fotografa i pozerice (možda je to blogerica :P). ˆ.ˆ

Vaši favoriti?

the moments of progress.

Volim u vlastitom ormaru (ok, u sestrinom- pošto u moj više ništa ne stane) pronaći kaput koji sam eto našao prošlo proljeće, odnio ga na kemijsko čišćenje i onda ga stavio duboko u ormar. Sestrica je imala hir za čišćenjem ormara (rijetkost) i donijela mi kaput za kojeg mi je trebalo da se sjetim otkud/otkad je.

I otvorim ga, probam, a na kraju skužim da je to kaput britanske modne kuće Auqascutum. Kad sam ga prošli put imao u rukama nisam imao pojma što je Aquascutum- pravi dokaz da u manje od godinu dana rada za modni časopis naučiš puno toga.

To me baš nekako učinilo sretnim. Ne samo činjenica da imam neki dobar vintage kaput već poimanje vlastitog napretka u razumijevanju mode u posljednjih godinu dana. Okolina je drugačija, postajem svjesniji svega što prije nisam bio svjestan.

Kao da sam zaista narastao u kompletnu osobu, osobu koja poznaje sebe i shvaća druge.

Valjda.
__________

I love when I find a coat in my own closet (ok, my sister's closet- since mine is stuffed already) that I got last spring, took it to the dry cleaners and then 'hid' it in my closet so it wait for the winter. In the meantime, I absolutely forgot about it, and my sis had a fad to clean her closet (happens rarely), found and brought me a fabulous navy maxi coat (I needed a moment to remember where/when I got it).

I opened it, tried it on, and finally figured out that this is the coat by the famous British fashion house called  Auqascutum. Last time I had it in my hands I had no idea what/who Aquascutum is, and that's legit proof that you can learn a lot in less than a year working for a fashion magazine.

It kinda made ​​me very happy. Not just the fact that I own a fabulous vintage coat, but the fact that I have progressed in the matter of understanding fashion in the past year. The environment is different, and so I am becoming more aware of what I had not been aware of before.

Like I really grew up into a complete person, a person who knows himself and understands others.

I guess.

weekly roundup 1

Odlučio sam unijeti novu 'rubriku' na blog. Pošto kroz tjedan skupljam sitne fashion vijesti, događaje i trenutke koji su me dojmili mislim da bi bilo zanimljivo napraviti jedan čušpajz post u kojem bi podijelio sve te sitnice s Vama.
__________

I decided to introduce a new 'column' to my blog. As I collect some tiny fashion, news, events or moments which I like during the week, I thought it could be interesting to put a post every week or so where I'd share those with you.

kenzo spring/summer 2013 campaign.
O divnim kampanjama već sam pisao (LINK), a ova koju ponovno potpisuje Jean-Paul Goude osnažila je moju ljubav prema Kenzu.
__________


I already wrote about the Kenzo campaigns (LINK), and this one by the so-kenzo-so-80's photographer  Jean-Paul Goude has just made my love for the brand so much stronger.


burberry prorsum a/w 2013 IT combo.
Kompletna revija me oduševila svojim spojem inovativnosti i klasike, ali ova kombinacija prozirnog gumenog balonera/kabanice i košulje s printanim srcima me ostavila bez daha. ODMAH. ŽELIM. U. SVOJEM. ORMARU.
___________

The whole a/w fashion show was simply amazing with its combination of classic pieces made in a new way, but this exact outfit made my mouth water. The rubber transparent raincoat/trenchcoat mixed with the heart print left me breathless. I. WANT. IT. NOW.

__________

Crazy, colourful, and totally my taste! :D The shoes are Bottega Veneta, and the suit is Just Cavalli. And the whole combo is Just Solange, and Just Beautiful.

the carrie diaries.
Taman je završila 'Gossip Girl' i eto već nove 'droge' za ljubitelje modno tematskih serijala. Kao što sam već napisao na facebook pageu (LINK) ova me serija zaista zagrijala svojim pilotom, a čak i uz nekoliko zamjerki sigurno ću nastaviti gledati 'malu Carrie' u njezinim New York avanturama. Možda čak počnem i blogati o ovoj seriji. ;)
__________

As soon as 'Gossip Girl' ended, here comes another 'drug' for the fashion-themed tv freaks (I'm here!). As I mentioned on my facebook page (LINK) this TV show made me 'fashion horny' with its pilot, and although I have some concerns about it, I'll definitely continue to watch Carrie and her NYC adventures. I'll maybe even blog about this show. ;)


Sviđa li Vam se ovaj koncept? I što mislite o tome da počnem blogati o 'The Carrie Diaries'? 
Ostavite komentare, želim čuti Vaše mišljenje! 
____________

Do you like the concept of the 'weekly roundup'? And what do you think about me blogging 'The Carrie Diaries'?
Please leave feedback, I'm interested to hear your opinion.
