Fashion illustration of the day/ Modna ilustracija dana


Last night I hardly got any sleep, but I'm not complaining. I have spent most of the night reading Germinal by Zola. I may be feeling like a train ran me over right now, but such a novel is surely worth one sleepless night. There is no need to be overly elaborative in my praises for Germinal is considered to be a masterpiece ( besides this is not a literature blog). However, it is so great that it deserves a mention. What I was surprised with was just how emotional my reaction to it was. Long story short, I absolutely loved this classical work of literature. So, I do recommend you to read it (in case you haven't read it yet). Now, let's say a few words about my today's post.  This outfit was really fun to illustrate. I wore it last March but I didn't get the chance to post it before. I'm kind of glad I waited until now, because it ended up inspiring me to do this illustartion. I don't often illustrate myself because it is kind of boring because there isn't that element of surprise. It is not like when I see someone and what he/she is wearing really inspires me. However, somethimes it is fun to illustrate something that I worn myself. It would be nice if I had the time to illustrate everything I wear and everything I like, but at the moment my time management skills are not as advanced. These flare jeans are old but I gave them a new twist by painting on them with textile paints (read about it in more detail here)

Noćas nisam skoro ništa spavala, ali neću se žaliti. Većinu noći sam provela čitajući Zolin Germinal . Možda se sada osjećam kao da me pregazio vlak, ali takav roman je vrijedan neprospavane noći. Nema potrebe da budem pretjerano detaljna u mojim pohvalama jer se Germinal smatra remek djelom (osim toga ovo nije književni blog). No, roman je tako sjajan da ga vrijedi spomenuti. Ono što me iznenadilo je koliko je emotivna bila moja reakcija na njega bila. Da skratim, jako mi se svidio ovaj književni klasik. Tako da mogu preporučiti da ga pročitate ( u slučaju da već niste). Reći ću još nešto i o današnjoj objavi. Bilo je zabavno ilustrirati ovu kombinaciju. Nosila sam ovo prošloga mjeseca, ali nisam to stigla prije objaviti. Sada mi je drago što sam malo pričekala, jer me na kraju to nadahulo za ovu ilustraciju. Ne slikam baš često sebe jer je to pomalo dosadno jer nedostaje taj element iznenađenja. Nije to kao kada vidim nekoga i ono što on/ona nosi me doista nadahne. No, nekad je i zabavno naslikati nešto što sam i sama nosila. Zgodno bi bilo kada bi imala vremena ilustrirati sve što sam nosila i sve što mi se svidi, ali zasada nisam tako vješta s organizacijom vremena. Traperice na zvono su stare, ali malo sam ih obnovila tako što sam ih obojala s tektilnim bojama ( o tome detaljnije možete pročitati ovdje).

  5. Sjećam se da je i na mene Germinal ostavio strašno jak utisak, ali još jače je bilo sa Therese Raquin (preporučam ako slučajno nisi čitala). Ja inače već zadnje dvije noći imam tako nenormalne noćne more da sam ujutro ko pregažena..nadam se da će što prije proći taj neki wtf period :) Super je ilustracija i još jednom jeej za moju omiljenu bundicu :D

  8. Hello Ivana :) You're right - sometimes it's great to illustrate yourself, especially when you was wearing great outfit on that day! :) I really like outcome of your masterpiece, it came out divine, well done,dear :D What about lack of time, unfortunately, I know something about that, but I hope that from time to time, you'll find some spare time to illustrate, because you're so good at it :) Take care, my friend! :)

  9. Hello from Spain: great fur coat. Fabulous illustration, as usual. Keep in touch

  10. I remember that outfit! You did such a fantastic job with the illustration. I get why you don't illustrate yourself often as I feel the same when I photograph myself but sometimes something really interesting comes of it. That book must be really something that you couldn't put it down to sleep :)

  16. Knjiga je fantastična! Davno sam je čitala ali sećam je se...
    Meni je baš slatko što si i samu sebe uvrstila u ilustracije, a i ova je ispala prelepo! Znam da često sami sebi nismo posebno inspirativni i zanimljivi, to je nešto što se obično traži na drugom mestu ali ne mora uvek tako da bude. Sjajna ideja i radujem se budućim :)

    1. hvala ti puno draga..i u pravu si, nekad i sebi možemo biti nadahnuće, ja sam neki dan gledala neke stare objave na blogu i odmah sam dobila nove ideje.

  17. Amazing illustration, dear Ivana, and for me there's the surprising feeling :) Because I didn't draw it, and I loved to see that! I really loved your coat and illustration and I find you very sweet and beautiful, besides talented and intelligent! You know what, this may not be a literature blog, but why not sharing with us the books you read - because many people simply don't read books, they only read facebook and are so self-absorbed in their looks and coffee meetings every day, that it is so refreshing to read that you love books! And Germinal, a masterpiece! So, thank you for the recommendation - and from Zola I recommend J'Accuse, but before that the political situation of the time must be read as well :) Super beautiful post, hope you have a very good week!

  26. I remember this arty pants for sure! How cute to capture it in painting.

    Was checking out Germinal on wikipedia outta curiosity. Looks like a critically acclaimed French classic.

  27. Naturalisti su brutalni tako da razumijem tvoju fasciniranost romanom... osim Germinala, odlična je i Teresa Raquen (ne znam kako se piše točno)... neće te ostaviti ravnodušnom nikako.
    Ova ilustracija mi je vrh a to sam ti već i napisala na IG... vrhunska je i savršena do zadnjeg detalja. Bundica mi je prekrasna i jako chic! :**

    1. znaju biti brutalni, ali izgleda da mi ovi francuski baš nekako odgovaraju. Paradoksalno, kad čitam njihove romane osjećam se bolje:), valjda nekako shvatim da je patnja univerzalna i da moram sačuvati onoliko pozitive koliko možemo.

  29. Ohhh, this is the outfit I saw in your textile paints post! It was my favourite one out of the ones you linked, I think I mentioned that in my comment - so cool to see a fashion illustration inspired by it! :) <3 I love the idea of painting on your own clothes, it adds a little personal touch which I think makes the clothing so much more special! Loving the painting as always, Ivana - you are super talented and I could never get tired of your art! Also, I don't mind your blog being an occasional literature blog... ;) x Your book reviews are always so soothing to read! x

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
