IMPOSING ACCESSORIES

 

IMPOSING ACCESSORIES

 

Initially I started as an accessories designer. My first collection was handmade handbag collection. It was made from different kinds of fabrics and the handles were made from wood or bamboo. They looked very attractive and I sold the whole collection very quickly, mostly to my friends and friends of friends.
Later as I started to study costume design, I was introduced to new ideas and understood connecting all the pieces within a collection. 
That gave my work a new dimension and some much needed focus and discipline. Pieces of accessories started following the clothes collection in a flattering way.
Collections usually consist of chunky hardware bracelets,  big statement necklaces or earrings. 
In some collections an architectural influence is very visible. Besides architecture I find inspiration in art, product design, and  also nature with the fluid shapes  of water, flowers, sea shells.
Materials that I use vary from wood to pearls, glass beams, bones and gemstones. Every piece is handmade and some are custom made for special occasions or clients.                                                                                                       I was always drawn to designing imposing accessories because they can define the whole look. Any outfit with the right accessories is a winning combination and what I call style.

 

Svoju dizajnersku karjeru sam započela kao dizajner nakita. Moja prva kolekcija bile su ručno izrađene ručne torbice. Bile su izrađene od različitih vrsta tkanina a ručke od savijanih grana ili bambusa. izgledale su atraktivno i vrlo brzo sam prodala cijelu kolekciju, uglavnom prijateljima i njihovim prijateljima.

 Kasnije, na studiju kostimografije, upoznala sam se s novim idejama i shvatila koncept povezanosti kolekcije.           To je mom radu dalo novu dimenziju i vrlo važan fokus i disciplinu. Modni dodaci počeli su skladno pratiti kolekcije odjeće.                                                                                                                                          

Kolekcije nakita se uglavnom sastoje od velikih komada nakita, ogrlica ili naušnica. U nekima je vidljiv utjecaj arhitekture. Osim arhitekture inspiriraju me umjetnost, produkt dizajn ali i priroda sa fluidnim oblicima vode, skoljki ili florala.                                                           

Materijali koje koristim variraju od drveta do bisera, staklenih perli, kosti ili poludragog kamenja. Svaki komad je rađen ručno, a neki i po narudžbi za specijalne prilike klijenata.                                                                            

Oduvijek me je privlačilo dizajniranje impozantnog nakita jer može definirati cijelokupni izgled. Svaka kombinacija uz pravilno odabrane modne dodatke je dobitna i ono što bih ja nazvala stilom.

 

CAMPAIGN FALL-WINTER 2017-18

 

FALL-WINTER 2017-18 CAMPAIGN

Basic inspiration for the campaign was the  feeling of old libraries, books, stories and quirky characters in them . A hint of "Charlie and the chocolate factory", "Alice in Wonderland", "Harry Potter"...Make up and hair, styling and accessories are work of Maion team.

In this collection most of the pieces are black suits and coats made from wool blends. Pieces that could be worn for a long time and always be in style but have detailed handwork or some quirky details. There is a lot of hand sewing and hand pleating in collection. 

Sleeves vary from opened sleeves to wide and hand pleated sleeves. One jacket has second pair of sleeves which can also be tied around waist and completely change the silhouette. We also took slow fashion to a whole new level.

 

Osnovna inspiracija za kampanju su bile stare knjižnice, knjige i neobicne priče iz koji izlaze vrrlo neobični likovi (Alisa u zemlji čudesa, Charlie i tvornica čokolade, Harry Potter...). Za frizuru, make-up i stajling zaslužan je Maion tim.

U kolekciji jesen-zima 2017-18 većina odjevnih predmeta su crna odijela i kaputi od mješavine vunenih tkanina. Komadi su bezvremenski i nosivi neovisno o promjenama trenda sa puno ručnog rada i neobičnih detalja,

Rukavi variraju od otvorenih do vrlo širokih i plisiranih. Jedan od sakoa ima 2 para rukava kao zabavni detalj ali se drugi par može iskoristiti za vezanje u struku pri čemu se u potpunosti mijenja silueta i dobiva mogućnost transformacije odjevnog predmeta

U ovoj kolekciji smo slow fashion smo podigli na sasvim novi nivo.

 

NEW LEVEL OF SLOW FASHION

 

New level of slow fashion

In collection fall-winter 2017-18 we took slow fashion to a whole new level. 
Best example is a black coat with open sleeves and pearl decorations. It took us 4 weeks to finish it.  After all the pieces were cut they were covered with cotton threads which were then machine sown until the wanted texture appeared. This technique is used in decor and drapes making and takes a  lot of time but the result is very unusual texture and one of a kind piece. The pearl accessories on the bottom of the coat and sleeves were hand sewn. The buttons were fabric coated  and the pearls were hand sown on it making the buttons huge and broche like.

U ovoj kolekciji smo slow fashion smo suprotstavili brzom zivotu i podigli na novi nivo. Najbolji primjer je crni kaput otvorenih rukava ukrašen bisernim perlama. Njegova je izrada trajala 4 tjedna. Nakon krojenja, na krojne dijelove nasivane su pamučne niti konca sve do dobivanja željene teksture. Postupak je dugotrajan ali neobicna tekstura rezultira posebnim i unikatnim komadom odjeće. Kaput je ukrašen bisernim perlama. Gumbi su obučeni u tkaninu i takoder ručno ukrašeni perlama te izgledaju poput broševa.
