parkplac

Posted on May 30, 2014

danes smo na beethovnovi dobili nov “parkplac” ali mali mestni park. “parkplaci” so projekt prostoroža in mesta, ki prispevajo k novemu dojemanju javnega prostora. pri postavitvi so bili uporabljeni  že rabljeni materiali in oprema. zame je to nova dnevna soba trgovine, z veseljem bom pripravila blazine, revije in še kaj, da se bodo mimoidoči v “parkplacu” tudi ustavili in poklepetali.

today  we got a new “parkplac” on beethovnova street. small city parks are a common project of the architectural group prostorož and city ljubljana which contributes to a new perception of a public space.  recycled materials and equipment were used at the construction. for me, “parkplac” is a new living room of my shop. I will be happy to prepare new pillows for it, magazines and anything else that  passers-by will  stop and chat at the new city park.

moja najljubša barva je modra, zame je to umirjena barva neba in nedoumljive globine morja. v kolekciji jesen/zima 2014/15 modra barva zamenja črno, na oblačilih se pojavlja v različnih odtenkih, teksturah in kolažih. digitalno potiskan vzorec je oblikovala tanja radež, fotografije za vzorec  pa so nastale na najinih sprehodih po rožniku.

my favorite colour is blue. it means to me  subdued colour of the sky and the unfathomable depth of the sea. the blue colour has replaced the black one in the collection autumn/winter 2014/15 and occurs in a variety of its shades, textures and collages. digitally printed pattern was designed by tanja radež, and the photos of the pattern were taken on our walks on rožnik.

majice / T shirts

Posted on March 11, 2014

v letošnji poletni kolekciji je vsaka majica ročno pošita in vsaka je unikatna. ko sem pod šivalnim strojem dokončala nekaj prvih, sem si zaželela, da ne bi več razmišljala o novih vzorcih, prešitja pa le ponavljala v drugih barvah. vendar tudi barve trakov in listkov zapeljejo v vedno nove  risbe. majice so na prodaj na e shopu  in v trgovini almirasadar na beethovnovi 12, ljubljana.

in the new summer collection, each T shirt is hand embroidered and  unique. when the first few of them were finished under the sewing machine, I wished not to think about new patterns anymore. but when I just wanted to repeat the embroideries in new colours,  new drawings  with different ribbons and textiles leaves were designed. T-shirts are on sale at e shop and in the almirasadar shop, beethovnova 12, ljubljana.

darila / christmas gifts

Posted on December 10, 2013

books or socks?

“books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. and it’s much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!” neil gaiman 

“what do you see when you look in the mirror?’ ’I? I see myself holding a pair of thick, woolen socks.’ harry stared. ‘one can never have enough socks,’ said dumbledore. ‘another christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. people will insist on giving me books.” j.k.rowling, harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone

knjiga / the book

Posted on November 19, 2013

po več kot desetih letih oblikovanja za svojo blagovno znamko, sodelovanja na projektih z različnimi oblikovalci in arhitekti, sem se odločila, da nekaj izdelkov, ki sem jih oblikovala, ponudim v izdelavo vsem, ki bi to želeli. izšla je knjiga, ki vabi, da po jasnih navodilih, s pomočjo skic in krojev soustvarite različne tekstilne izdelke. navodila prepuščam vsakomur, da jih krši ali spreminja, izdelke pa nadgrajuje v drugačne in nove. izdelke je fotografirala ana hribar, spremna besedila je napisala valentina smej novak. knjiga bo predstavljena na 29. slovenskem knjižnem sejmu od 20. do 24. novembra v cankarjevem domu v ljubljani.

after more than ten years of designing for my own brand, collaborating with different designers and architects, I  decided to offer some of the products that I had designed to everybody  who would like to make them. the published book invites you to make different textile products with the help of instructions, sketches and patterns. instructions could be broken or changed, and the products upgraded as you want. the author of photographies is ana hribar, the author of text is valentina smej novak. the book will be presented at the 29th slovenian book fair from 20 to 24 november in cankarjev dom in ljubljana.

fashion week ljubljana 2013

Posted on October 23, 2013

najprej so bili križci na platnu, ki so postajali vse večji, še bolj pisani in vezeni skozi odprtine zakovic. vzorci zakovic so omogočili nove naborke, pregibe in poudarjene detajle na silhuetah oblačil. oviti pleteni trakovi so omehčali silhuete. dodani platneni copati in prepleteni sandali so popeljali kolekcijo po pisti letošnjega fashion weeka.

at first, there were cross stitches on the textiles, which became larger, more colorful and embroidered  through the holes of the rivets. the patterns of rivets enabled new folds, frills  and highlighted details on the silhouettes of clothing. wrapped knitted bands softened the silhouettes. added snickers and sandals walked the collection on the catwalk of this year’s fashion week.
