Illustrating a Catwalk Look From Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2018 Collection (Fashion illustration of the Day: Watercolour)



Today I'm back with a new fashion illustration. Once again, the medium is watercolour and pencil on paper. Once again, I'm not sure will I make any alternations, but I wanted to share this one as it is. I can always change it up a little bit if I want to. Plus, this is a pretty good way to show you what caught my eyes the most when we're talking about collections. I mean if I illustrated something, then you know it caught my eye, right? This time I illustrated a runaway look from Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2018 collection. How do you like it? 

I absolutely love this look. I think this was my first time illustrating one of Stella McCartney's designs but I do love her work. In my view, she is an absolutely original designer and I do respect that. Stella McCartney's not only creative, she is also a very environmentally friendly designer. She always makes sure that her collections are sustainable and I do admire that. Sustainability in fashion is important! I heard it said many times that fast fashion is one of the largest treats to environments. So, falling in love with clothes and shopping less can be a good way to fight pollution. When we truly love an item, then we want to keep it and it is more important to us that  we keep it in a good shape. Does that makes sense to you? I'm not advocating designer clothing items as such, I'm just speaking in general and saying that being  more conscious about our purchases is always good. I might speak about this subject a bit more in the future. 

Yesterday was the first day of Spring....and you know what? It snowed! Can you imagine? Snow for the first day of Spring. I know that in some places it is quite common, but in the Mediterranean region. It was a lovely surprise, though. I know it is easy for me to say. I know there are a lot of you that are really tired of the snow and I don't blame you, but to me snow looked so beautiful yesterday. I felt as if I was in a fairy-tale. We hardly ever get snow so when it snows here, I always feel like I've just travelled to some other country. 








You know despite writing down the name of the collection in pencil (you can see it in the bottom of the illustration), when I wanted to take another look at this catwalk look, I made the mistake of looking for this collection in Stella's Autumn/Winter collection simply because the boots made me think of Winter. Only when had browsed through her Autumn/Winter collection (and that one is gorgeous as well), I finally remembered that this look belongs to Stella's Spring collection.

However, we do wear boots in Spring, so why they shouldn't be a part of a Spring collection? This particular look is seriously stunning. I would totally wear it right now. Would you? Runaway looks are sometimes more theatrical and fashion forward and not that I mind that, I actually love it, but it is also lovely to see something you can wear for every day. I'm a big fan of midi skirts, any time anywhere. For me, this look is pure perfection. It's feminine but it looks very comfy at the same time.

These dried flowers ( I love drying flowers if you hadn't noticed) made me think of this design so I had to take a photograph with them. The other photographs I'm sharing were all taken on the same day, most of them are unedited but some of them I edited. I've been trying to experiment a bit with adding effects to my illustration and drawings. Although, I think I'm really a more old fashion kind of illustrator, it is always nice to try something new. That would be all for today? Let me know how are you? How is the weather? Has the Spring arrived yet? Here it is still cold, I guess that we have to wait a bit longer.

  4. The whole collection is stunning, and I can really see why you chose this piece to illustrate. It's the sort of outfit that whilst I couldn't see myself wearing it out on a daily basis, it would be perfect for evenings and events.

  7. ottimo lavoro Ivana! E che bello l'accostamento con i fiori secchi!
    Anche qui, nonostante siamo in primavera le temperature si sono di nuovo abbassate (non così tanto come da te, ma siamo passati da 20° a 8° C in un paio di giorni), speriamo si decida ad andare via presto l'inverno!
    Baci!

  11. Another lovely illustration, I can understand why you have chosen it. This purple outfit is my favorite. Everything in this illustration is beautiful because purple is one of my favorite shade. I loved how you added those purple flowers around it. I'm surprised to know that there was snow fall on the first day of spring. The weather has become quite cold in my city too after raining but I hope the effect will go away after a few days:)Have a great day honey! Kisses <3

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
