Marbleous!


Otkada nas je Christopher Kane pre koju godinu sve naterao da pogledamo gore, zvezdano nebo više nikada nije moglo bilo isto. U međuvremenu, galaxy print je brzinom svetlosti prešao put od londonskih pista do lokalnih kineskih butika i - svima nam dosadio. Dragi moji, pravo je vreme da spustite pogled, ka utrobi Zemlje, i onome što ona krije. Njegovo veličanstvo - kamen!  Nimalo slučajno, jedan od omiljenih materijala Mies van der Rohea, čoveka koji stoji iza čuvene rečenice Manje je više. Vrlo svestan da raskošnoj grafici mermera ne trebaju dodatni ornamenti, Mies koristi kamene panele, čija jednostavna forma pravi savršen kontrast bogatoj teksturi. Ako je lepota u protivrečnostima, ima li šta lepše od tkanine koja izgleda kao kamen, a lepršava je i lagana kao pero?

Since Christopher Kane made us all look up couple of years ago, starry sky could have never been the same again. In the meantime, galaxy print went from runways of London to your local Chinese shop at the speed of light and - bored us all to death. I guess now would be the right time to start looking down, towards the Earth and the secrets it hides. His Majesty - the Stone! It's not a coincidence that it was one of the favorite materials of Mies van der Rohe, the man behind the ubiquitous phrase Less is More. Very aware  that graphic quality of marble needs no additional ornament, Mies keeps the stone in its purest form. A minimalist perfection - rich texture packed in simple form. If beauty is all about contradiction, is there anything more beautiful than fabric that looks like stone, but is light as a feather?

  1. Ajme, stvarno, nisam to uopće zamijetila, ali mramor je zaista divnog printa na odjeći, posebno one prve haljine i one cipelice! Jako zanimljivo i avangardno, sasvim nova dimenzija crno-bijelog! Ilina

  3. Uvek sam za kada se inspiracija uzme iz nekaog naseg okruzenja ili prirode.
    Mermer je tako fora, jos kada meterijal dobije sitne reljefe, bas izgleda nestvarno.
    Mnogo volim i porculanske sare.
    Divan post :)

    U prirodi nema kicastih spojeva boja, osim kada to ljudi izmiksaju :)
