Pepito

Istorijat ženskih odela možemo pratiti još od prve decenije 20. veka. Naime, čuvena Gabrijel Koko Šanel pokrenula je čitavu revoluciju izbacivši liniju ženskih odela. Žene su rado odbacile neudobne korsete i krinoline, i odnele još jednu pobedu u borbi za emancipaciju. Sama reč odelo potiče od francuske reči suite što znači pratiti, jer svaka odevna komponenta odela prati u stilu, teksturi, materijalu i dezenu jedna drugu, čineći skladnu celinu. Žene su tokom proteklih decenija i te kako dokazale da je taj, na oko konzervativni, komad odeće oslobađajuć, šik i seksipilan. I zato, pratite me kroz narednu seriju fotografija. Hvala još jednom Tijani Mihajlović (tijana__mihajlovic__) na izuzetnim fotografijama!

The history of women's suits can be traced to the first decade of the 20th century. It was then when the famous Gabriel Coco Chanel started an entire revolution by releasing a line of women's suits. Women were eager to discard the uncomfortable corsets and crinolines, and carried out another victory in the struggle for emancipation. The very word suit comes from the French word suite which means following, as every clothing item follows specific style, texture, material and design as a whole. Women have proven, over the course of several decades, that this type of conservative clothing can be very liberating, chic and full of sex appeal. So, follow me through the next series of photos. Thanks again to Tijana Mihajlović (tijana__mihajlovic__) for the amazing photos.

Pop Art

Iako je američka kultura Pop art započela svoj život još 50-ih, zapravo, svoj najveći zamah doživela je 60-ih godina 20. veka. Američki umetnici kao odgovor na sve učestaliju komercijalizaciju likovne umetnosti počinju da tragaju za sve dramatičnijim i mračnijim stilovima koji će ih distancirati od konformističkih prethodnika. Najcenjenija ostvarenja ovog ranog perioda dela su umetnika neizgovorljivih imena kao što su Džasper Džons, Robert Raušenberg i Roj Lihtenštajn. Pop art kultura spavaja popularnu masovnu kulturu sa visokom umetnošću, dodajući joj ironiju, humor i prepoznatljiv vizuelan izraz.  Slike Lihtenštajna, kao i Vorhola, Veselmana i drugih dele istu direktnu vezu sa opštim mestima američke popularne kulture. Endi Vorhol je verovatno najpoznatija figura i oličenje ove kulture. Zapravo, likovni kritičar Artur Danto se jednom prilikom osvrnuo na Vorhola nazivajući ga najznačajnijim filozofskim genijem koje je istorija umetnosti proizvela. Vorhol pokušava i uspeva da Pop art prevede od umetničkog u životni stil. U ostatku ove objave, kroz fotografije za koje je zaslužan moj kolega Nikola Goločevac, videćete i kako je uticao na moj životni stil. Uživajte!

Even though American pop culture started its life in the 1950s, it made the biggest breakthrough in the 1960s. American artists respond to the ever growing commercialization of the fine arts by looking for more dramatic and darker styles to distance themselves from the conformist predecessors. The most valued works of this early period belong to artists with unpronounceable names like Jasper Jones, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein. Pop art culture connects popular mass culture with high art, while adding irony, humor and recognizable visual expression. Paintings by Lichtenstein, Warhol, Wesselmann and others share a direct link to common places of American popular culture. Andy Warhol is probably the most famous figure and personification of this culture. In fact, art critic Arthur Danto once called Warhol as "the nearest thing to a philosophical genius the history of art has produced". Warhol tried and succeeded in his attempt to take pop art from art style to life style. In the rest of this post, through photographs created by my colleague Nikola Goločevac, you'll see how it affected my life style. Enjoy!

Moscow Cap

"Kad god bih prolazio Pozorišnom ulicom, gotovo svagda sam pred vratima malog dućana, podignutog uz jednu staru drvenu kuću, viđao čoveka koji mi je izgledao kao da nije za to mesto, da je suvišan u toj uzanoj, mračnoj pukotini grada, pokrivenoj prugom prašnjavog neba." - Maksim Gorki

***

Od svih čari koje mi je šetnja Balkanskom ulicom oduvek pružala, razgledanje malih zanatskih radnji bih svrstala u omiljene. Ova očaravajuća crvena moskovljanka kupljena je baš tu - u staroj šeširdžinici u Balkanskoj ulici. Uz nju su mi savršeno pristajale crvene naočare. Naočare kolorisanih stakala predstavljaju mi pravo otkrovenje. Uz njih, čak i oni najsumorniji dani mogu biti obojeni toplim bojama. Leopard print je sam po sebi upečatljiv. Kako bih na njega stavila akcenat, za ostatak odevne kombinacije sam odabrala mirnije komade. Veliko hvala Tijani Mihajlović (mardy__bum__) na predivnim fotografijama.

Of all the things that I love about Balkanska street (Belgrade, Serbia), looking at the displays of all the craftsman shops is by far a favorite. This delightful red hat was bought right there - in an old hat shop in Balkanska street. I paired it perfectly with red glasses. Brightly colored glasses are a recent discovery. With them, even the most gloomy days can be painted in vibrant and warm colors. Leopard print is on its own very impressive. To make it stand out, I used clothes that are less striking.  I'd like to thank my lovely Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__) for the beautiful photographs.

Casablanca

Na samom početku rađanja moje ljubavi prema kinematografiji pojavila romantična drama Kazablanka. Kada bi se čovečja ličnost gradila poput kuće, mojoj ličnosti bi ovaj film predstavljao kamen temeljac. Nakon toliko godina i dalje je smatram vrhuncom kinematografije, kao i standard po kom i dalje razvijam sopstvenu estetiku. A tu su i fotografije koje to dokazuju, za koje je zaslužena moja draga prijateljica i talentovani fotograf Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__). Romantična haljina, par crvenih salonki i bunda od nutrije pokazali su se kao pravi spoj. Nadam se da ćete se složiti sa mnom!

At the very beginnings of my love for cinematography there I was introduced to a fantastic drama called Casablanca. If human personalities were built as houses, that film would be the cornerstone of my personality. After so many years I still consider it a masterpiece and a standard to which I develop my own aesthetic. Here is a collection of photos to how it, credit for which goes to my dear friend and talented photographer Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__). Romantic dress, a pair of red pumps and nutria coat turned out to be quite a combination. I hope you'll agree with me!

Lady of the Lake

Boje jeseni inspirišu, zrače lepotom, hrane dušu i podstiču na stvaranje. Kažu da je petak 13. baksuzan dan, ali jedan baš takav petak je bio darovit i pružio nam je sve lepote jeseni. Prava bi bila šteta ne ovekovečiti ga fotoaparatom. Ovoga puta ne bih pisala o modi, jer ove fotografije slave umetnost i lepote prirode. Za fotografije bih se zahvalila svojoj talentovanoj i dragoj prijateljici Tijani Mihajlović (mardy__bum__).

The colors of the autumn are inspiring, radiating beauty, feeding the soul and encouraging creation. They say that Friday the 13th is a bad luck day, but just such a Friday was a real gift and gave us all the beauty of the fall. It would be a real shame not to immortalize it with a camera. This time I will not write about fashion because these photos celebrate the art and beauty of nature. I would like to thank my talented and dear friend Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum) for the superb photos.

Thai Kaftan

Današnju objavu sam posvetila ovoj predivnoj tajlandskoj maxi haljini. U svom garderoberu već imam komada u ovom stilu, poreklom iz Afrike i Azije. Ne prestajem da budem opčinjena njima. Prepoznatljive su po jarkim bojama, upečatljivim dezenima, maxi dužini i takozvanom kaftan kroju. Spoj koji čini haljine poput ove monumentalnim.  

Today's post is dedicated to the goreous Thailand maxi dress. I already have several pieces in this style that have originated from Africa and Asia in my wardrobe. I can't stop being enchanted by them. They are recognizable by their strong colours, striking patterns, maxi length and the so-called kaftan cut. It is the combination of these qualities that makes these dresses monumental.
