As i do enjoy expressing my aesthetis through clothes as much as i do through designing space i gladly accepted the invitation to be featured in the street style section of Siol Trendi, where Slovene-speaking readers can also read about my thoughts on parallels between architecture and fashion, 2017 interior design trends and blogging.

There hasn’t been a proper outfit post on this blog in forever so i’m really happy to share one today, thanks to Max&Co. and their Miss Juno line of luxe leather bags. Here, i’m wearing the smallest (and cutest) bag of the current collection but there are four more gorgeous shapes to choose from. Anyways, to make this gloomy November a bit happier, Max&co. store (located on Miklošiščeva street in Ljubljana) is treating you, my dear readers, with a 20% discount on the entire collection (until the end of November), all you have to do is drop the name of this blog (or my name). Happy shopping 😉

It’s fashion week season again and the last couple of nights were at Ljubljana Fashion Week, marveling at the fresh fall collections. The show that captured my attention the most this time around was Maja Ferme‘s velvet 70s disco inspired extravaganza. Velvet really is THE material for the upcoming season and Ferme’s version is luxurious yet fun, youthful, exciting and most importantly; wearable. While watching the show i couldn’s stop thinking of how this trend would translate into interior design so upon returning home i serched for gorgeous velvety interior counter parts to Maja Ferme‘s pieces. The collages undoubtfully prove the fact that velvet works equally well in fashion as it does in interios so don’t hesitate and go get yourself a velvet blazer/dress/shoes and while you’re at it get your sofa/chairs reupholstered.

Yes, all the shoes i seem to buy lately have one thing in common – laces. All though i’ve always hated trends that got too popular i just can’t seem to get enough of lace ups. I promised myself not to buy another pair but we’ll see if i manage to keep the promise once the sales start 😉
Due to insanely busy schedule this time around i sadly don’t have the time to visit all of Ljubljana fashion week
shows, but for Matic Veler
i just had to make the effort. Of course, it was well worth it! I was /as always/ mesmerized by his understanding of three dimentional space and use of texture.
The volumes of his garments are very clean but where he explodes with creativity is the details. Geometric prints (yes, he designed the prints as well) and organic laser cut shapes, folded into true sculptures is where his genius really comes through in it’s best form.
The color palette of nudes, blacks, deep reds and metallic gold pulls the collection together and makes most pieces very wearable. Another interesting aspect of the garments is the illusion of nakedness that implies to the idea of clothes being essentially sculptures which are framing the body.
I have to say photos don’t do the garments justice as they are three dimentonal masterpieces, made to be viewed from all angles and that is why i’m super happy i got to see them in person. Also, i have to say i loved the whole pace of the event and simple yet cool scenography. Ljubljana Fashion Week keeps getting better and better with each season 🙂
