IN LOVE. backstage milano a/w 2013


Svi kažu da se najbolje stvari događaju iza scene, a ne na njoj. Backstage fotke s modnih revija zaista mogu potvrditi tu mudru tvrdnju.

Odlučio sam (na sebi svojstven način) s vama podijeliti ovaj set backstage fotki s posljednjeg Milanskog tjedna mode, jesensko-zimske 2013 kolekcije. Volim gledati ovakve fotografije jer odaju spontanost prisutnu na tjednima mode, ne samo savršenu sliku dobivenu na pisti. Također se mogu pobliže vidjeti i kosa, make-up i styling te svaki od ta 3 elementa može se pomno analizirati. A kad smo već kod analize stylinga, Bottega Veneta djevojke izgledaju stvarno savršeno. < 3



Everyone says best things don't happen on the scene but behind it. Backstage photos from fashion shows really confirm that wise statement.

I decided to share my favourite set of backstage photos taken during the Milan a/w 2013 fashion shows. I really love to look at these photos because they give away the spontaneity of fashion shows, not just the picture-perfect moments that rule the catwalk. You can also see the make-up, hair & styling up close, and any of these details can be examined closely. And while talking about styling, Bottega Veneta girls look like perfection. < 3

VIDEO. this too shall pass

.

Oduvijek sam htio napraviti video iza-scene-editorijala. Nažalost, ovaj gore nije moj, ali ako ću ikad raditi na jednom - on će biti moja inspiracija. Editorijal se zove 'This too shall pass', a objavljen je u magazinu 'Fucking youg'. Razlog zbog kojeg volim ovakve videe je zato što daju drugu perspektivu mode - aktivniju, realniju i 3-D viziju. Daju vam razlog vjerovati da se u modi ne radi samo o lijepim fotografijama već također o pokretu, strasti i mnogočemu drugome.

Uživajte!



I've always wanted to make a behind-the-editorial video. Unfortunately, this one is not mine, but if I ever make one, this is going to be the inspiration. The editorial is called 'This too shall pass', and it's published in the 'Fucking young' magazine. The reason why I like videos like this one is because they give you another perspective on fashion - one that is more active, physical & 3-D. It gives you a reason to believe that fashion is not only about pretty pictures, but also movement, passion, and many more.

Enjoy!

MUSIC. festivals summer 2013


You know how people say, when desperate just keep your hope up. Well, I'll just skip a month or so, and go to my summer plans.

As I mentioned many times before (I know I may be bored as sh*t but hey, this is a blog where I put anything that's on my mind), I'm planning on partying this summer, and visiting a few festivals so I'm bringing you 3 festivals I'm visiting this year.

1. INmusic festival (24-26/6/2013)

Već sam pisao o INmusicu, ali to je svakako jedan od najboljih lineupova ove godine tako da ne mogu prestati biti uzbuđen!


I already wrote about it, but it's really one of the best lineups of the year so I can't stop getting excited! 

HEADLINERS: Arctic Monkeys, Iggy & the Stooges, Basement Jaxx
MY FAVS: Editors, Stealing Sheep, Arctic Monkeys




2. Hideout Festival (3-5/7/2013)
Znam da će to bit jedan ogromni trodnevni party! To je Zrće, to je britanska organizacija i to je odlična elektronička glazba.


I know this is going to be a 3-day party! It's Zrće, it's british & it's amazing electronic music.

HEADLINERS: Chase&Status (DJ SET), Four Tet (DJ SET),  Jamie Jones
MY FAVS: Rudimental (DJ SET), Lee Foss, Death on the Balcony, Camo & Krooked





3. Terraneo festival, 7-9/8/2013
Svi kažu da tamo vlada posebna energija - apsolutno eklektična glazba i potpuno različiti izvođači - odličan mix!


Everyone says it's a special energy - absolutely eclectic music & different performers - an amazing mix!

HEADLINERS: The Prodigy, My Bloody Valentine, Azealia Banks
MY FAVS: Azealia Banks, Cloud Nothings, Dubioza Kolektiv

WISHLISTED. converse all star 'hawaii print'


Trenutno razmišljam o preimenovanju ovog bloga u 'FLORAL brick road'. HAHA

Sudeći po količini cvjetnih printeva na odjeći i asesoaru objavljenim na ovom blogu, netko bi rekao da sam cvjetni maniak, a zapravo nisam toliko zaljubljen u stvarno cvijeće. Ova capsule kolekcije Converse All Stara zaista me pogodila u 'žilu' zbog hawaii printa, pogotovo hawaii printa na TENISICAMA (koje su također moja slabost :P).

Zaista sam iznenađen (u pozitivnom smislu) koliko je dobra kombinacija ovog all-american brenda sa ovim malo modernijim i trendovsim dizajnom. Pretpostavljam da se neće svim All Star fanovima svidjeti ova kolekcija, ali sam siguran da će dobiti i velik broj novih fanova.




I'm thinking of renaming this blog into 'FLORAL brick road'. HAHA

By the amount of floral clothing & accessories on this blog, someone would say I'm a flower-maniac, but I'm really not that into real-life flowers. This capsule collection by Converse All Star really hit my soft spot for hawaii prints, and especially hawaii print on SNEAKERS (which are also my softspot :P). 

I'm really amazed by how this all-american brand really translates well into some more edgy & cool designs. I know many fans of All Star won't like these, but I'm also sure Converse will gain some new ones.

Eastpak @ La Croisette, Cannes, 2013


Jedan od mojih omiljenih brendova Eastpak na ovogodišnjem filmskom festivalu u Cannesu imao je svoj showroom/Beach House! U srcu La Croisette ekipa je bila okružena odličnom atmosferom i umjetnicima koje je tamo doveo Eastpak. Oh, kako bih radio bio tamo...


One of my favourite brands, Eastpak had its own showroom/Beach House in Cannes, during this year's Cannes Movie Festival. In the heart of La Croisette everyone was surrounded by amazing atmosphere & artists provided by Eastpak. Oh, how I'd like to be there...

stussy s/s 2013 headwear


Ludi printevi i bejzbolske kape - prava savršena ljetna kombinacija! Ovi trendi komadi dolaze oz brenda Stussy - urbanog brenda odjeće i asesoara iz SAD-a. Siguran sam da će printane kape biti jako popularne tijekom ljetnih festivala i partija, samo zato što daju savršen touch mode nekom jednostavnom outfitu.
Možete ih lako kombinirati uz obične potkošulje i kupaće bokserice ako ste dečko ili uz par traper šorca visokog struka i zanimljiv bikini ako ste cura. I spremni ste partijati!

Moj favoriti iz kolekcije sigurno su komadi u cvjetnom printu inspirirani batik tehnikom bojanja. Ja bih ih isfurao uz full-print outfit za po danu ili jednostavnu kombinaciju bijele majice i hlačica u boji za večer.



Crazy patterns & baseball caps - perfect summery combination! These trendy pieces are coming from Stussy - USA based urban clothing & accessories brand. I'm sure that printed caps will be very popular during summer festivals & parties because they give just a perfect touch of fashion to a simple outfit. You can easily combine them with a simple tank top & a pair of swimming shorts if you're a boy, or a pair of denim high waisted shorts & a bikini if you're a girl. And you're ready to party!

My favourites are definitiely the floral ones in batik inspired prints. I'd rock them with an all print looks for day, or a simple t-shirt & coloured shorts combo for the night!

TREND. clear sunglasses


Nikad se nisam smatrao vidi-trend-kupi-trend osobom. Naravno, svi smo mi intenzivno okruženi trendovima, a i kupujem u dućanima koji istovremeno prate i stvaraju trendove. Svejedno, nikad nisam imao opsesiju da kad vidim nešto u magazinu, to isto moram i imati. Više sam tip osobe koja shoppingholičarski kupuje spontano, a upravo tako sam i kupio prvi par prozirnih naočala.

A tada postajem super-trend-opsesivna osoba - kad imam nešto što mi se svidi, želim imati još puno puno toga. Na taj je način započela i moja opsesija prozirnim sunčanim naočalama. Guglao sam, polyevoreao sa, yahoo searchao sam. I pronašao hrpetinu prozirnih sunčanih naočala koje bih stvarno volio imati. Moj apsolutni favorit definitivno je 'Crystal clear' model by Sheriff&Cherry (www.sheriffandcherry.com). Također ''ne bih imao ništa protiv'' modela by Acne, Retro Super Future i Cheap Monday! ˆ.ˆ

Uživajte!




I don't consider myself as a buy-a-trend person. Naturally, I follow trends as they really surround me (and everyone), and I shop in stores that really follow and create trends, but I never had an obsession to see something in a magazine, and a instant need to go and buy it. I've been more of a spontaneous shopaholic, and that's how I got my first pair of clear sunglasses.

And then, I become a super-trend-obsessed person - I own something I like, and I want more of it. That's where my obsession with clear sunglasses started to take over. I googled, polyvored, yahoo searched etc. And found a major number of clear sunglasses frames that I'd absolutely love to have for myself! My absolute favourites are the 'Crystal clear' sunglasses by Sheriff&Cherry (www.sheriffandcherry.com). I also wouldn't mind owning a pair from Acne, Retro Super Future or Cheap Monday! ˆ.ˆ

Enjoy!





Sviđa li vam se trend? Hoćete kupiti (ili već jeste?!) par za ovo ljeto? Koji su vaši favoriti?!



Do you like the trend? Will you buy (or did you already?!) a pair for this summer? Which one of these are your favourites?!

rains like paradise.


Bilo je presmiješno.

Spremao sam se za kino - odabrao sam što ću odijenuti u 2 minute. Kao i uvijek, provirio sam kroz prozor kako bih vidio kakvo je vrijeme i kako bih odabrao što staviti na noge. Izgledalo je sunčano. Kad sam krenuo prema van, mama se zaderala 'NE ZABORAVI KIŠOBRAN!!', a ja sam se sjetio ovratnika by Kragrlica kojeg sam dobio prije nekoliko tjedana. Odlučio sam u cijeli outfit dodati i taj kišobranski kraguljak.

Naravno, kad sam izašao van, nakon 2 minute hodanja - počela je kiša. Kako ironično, moj kišobran nije mogao spasiti moju glavu. Barem sam se smijao negdje 5 minuta. Čak ni kiša nije mogla upropastiti moj dan.

ps. Sunčane su na faci jer se vrijeme nije moglo odlučiti hoće li biti sunčano ili kišno!



It was so funny.

I was getting ready to go to the cinema - I chose what to wear in 2 minutes. As always, I peeked outside to see how's the weather so I can choose what to put on my feet. It looked sunny. And as my mother told me 'TAKE THE UMBRELLA!!' I remembered this collar by a brand called Kragrlica I got few weeks ago. I decided to put on my umbrella collar.

Of course, when I got outside, and walked for 2 minutes - it started to rain. How ironically, my umbrella couldn't save my head. At least I laughed for 5 minutes. Not even the rain could ruin my day.

ps. The sunglasses are here because the weather couldn't decide whether to rain or to be sunny!

MUSIC. throwback INmusic festival 2009.

Znam da sam Već pisao o INmusic festivalu (KLIKNITE OVDJE), ali jučer sam naišao na ove fotke koje moram podijeliti s Vama! To je bila godina kad su Lily Allen, Franz Ferdinand, Editorsi, Kraftwerk i mnogi drugi svirali na INmusic festivalu.

Tada još nisam bio bloger, bio sam samo jedan klinac. Nisam ni znao maknuti timestamp s fotografija, a imao sam valjda najjadniji idiot digitalac za fotić. Ne mogu dočekati ovu godinu, da ponovno vidim/slušam Editorse. Bend koji je dobio vjerojatno najveću razinu moje pažnje 2009. (prvi red sam bio!) Zahvaljujući prijateljici Iskri, koja je njihov ultimativan fan, youtubeao sam ih i od tada, nisam prestao slušati njihovu glazbu. Nadam se da ću i ove godine na INmusicu pronaći nekog novog omiljenog izvođača jer upravo festivale poput ovog zbog ogromnog broja izvođača smatram kao idealne za pronalazak novih omiljenih izvođača.

Već imam nekih 'debitantskih' favorita s ovogodišnjeg lineupa (provjerite ga na inmusicfestival.com), ali to ću sačuvati za jedan drugi dan!

Uživajte u ovim (pra)starim fotkama!

PS. Pogledajte te 'chic' festivalske outfite! haha




I know I already wrote about this year's INmusic festival (CLICK HERE), but I found these pics yesterday so I had to do it AGAIN. It was the year when Lily Allen, Franz Ferdinand, Editors (this year again!!), Kraftwerk, and many more performed at the INmusic festiaval.

I wasn't even a blogger then, I was just a little kid. I didn't even know how to remove the timestamp from the photos, and I had the lamest camera ever. I can't wait for this year, to listen/see the Editors again. The band that probably got most of my attention in 2009. (first row!) Thanks to my friend Iskra that was their ultimate fan, I youtubed them, and since then, I can't stop listening to their music. I hope to get to know about a new performer, and I'm sure that I will because INmusic festival truly is one of the festivals with the biggest number of performers to see and to musically meet.

I already have some 'newby' favourites from this year's lineup (inmusicfestival.com), but I'll save that for another chance!

Enjoy in these goldy oldies!

ps. Look at all those 'chic' festival outfits! haha

EDITORIAL. spring fling / essential homme, may 2013

 Pošto sam veliki fan modnih editorijala već dugo tražim neki s muškom modom koji će me inspirirati. I napokon sam ga pronašao!

Editorijal nazvan 'Spring Fling' objavljen je u broju za svibanj magazina Essential Homme. Styling nije previše lud ili ženstven (što ne volim kada govorimo o muškoj modi), ali je dovoljno drugačiji da bi bio zanimljiv. Moji apsolutni favoriti su Burberry svilena bomber jakna, Dolce&Gabbana košulja i oversized parka u pješčanoj nijansi iz radionice Louis Vuittona.


As a fashion editorial freak, I've been searching for an inspiring menswear one for a long time. And I finally found it!

This editorial called 'Spring Fling' was published in the May edition of Essential Homme magazine. The styling is not to crazy or feminine (which I don't love when we're talking about menswear), but has enough edge to be interesting. My absolute favourite pieces are the Burberry silk bomber jacket, Dolce&Gabbana shirt, and the oversized sandy parka by Louis Vuitton.

retrograde.


Istovremeno dosađen svime i prezauzet stvarima koje moram raditi - paradoks koji trenutno predstavlja moj život. Svaki dan čini se kao samo jedan dan manje prije ljeta, a svaki jednako postaje sve više siv, sve tužniji i sve dosadniji. Nemojte me krivo shvatiti, obožavam što radim i koliko sam prilika dobio u posljednje vrijeme, a i apsolutno sam zahvalan na svim stvarima koje su mi se dogodile, ali jednostavno taj je-ne-sais-quoi osjećaj obuzima moj um/mozak/kajgod je to u glavi. Kao da me vuče i privlači London, da tamo živim, radim i studiram. Ali eto, još samo 15 mjeseci i to će postati moja realnost.

I iskreno, ne mogu dočekati taj trenutak da se dogodi.



Bored with everything & having so much to do - a paradox that currently presents my life. Each day seems like one day less before the summer, and each day is getting grayer, sadder & more boring. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do & how many chances I got these last few months, and I'm absolutely grateful for everything, but that je-ne-sais-quoi feeling has just been in mind. I really want to go to London, to live, to work & to study. But hey, I need to wait 15 more months and it will be my reality. 

And honestly, I can't wait for that to happen.
