During my single day in Zagreb,
I chose these shops in the city center which offer either creations of Croatian designers or iconic products that have conquered the world, as the tie, Gentlemen! I started to work in menswear (lol)! In short, no need to come shopping in Zagreb, to spin at the same global brands you can find at home!!
An accessory shop for home design. Mix of international brands and Croatian designers. I liked the tote bags (first picture): very cool souvenirs to bring as gifts. The picture 2 shows the Zagreb Design Week poster … Tkalčićeva 48, zagreb. Tel : +385 14 81 3470.
2. Maks Studio
Must do. In a light intimate courtyard, Macks Studio, the store and showroom of the Croatian designer Saša Maksimiljanović offers loose clothing with asymmetrical lines and as accessories some tribal-inspired jewelery. Teslina 9 (u dvoristu), 10000 Zagreb. Tel : +385 48 10 606.
Intrigued by this dress on display (photo 1), I discovered the Boudoir, the store of the binoculars fashion designers, Morana Saračević et Martina Čičko Karapetric. Dresses of princesses for more evening than day and a selection of hats. Radićeva 25. Telefon: +385 1 48-13-464.
4. Folk Trend
I don’t have a particular shop or market. I’ve just liked a lot the traditional embroidered blouses. I didn’t had time to find a shop with homemade blouses and gowns made in Croatia. If you know some, send me an email or leave a comment.
In an old gallery in central Zagreb (picture 1), I discovered the origin of the tie at the Salon Croata. When the Croatian Light Cavalry went to Paris during the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648), soldiers “used to tie lively-coloured scarves around their necks in a certain way”. And during the reign of Louis XIV, Parisians really enjoyed this new fashion accessory “in the Croatian way”. Subsequently, as you know, the cravat has become global ; ) Ilica 5 (Oktogon). Tel : +385 (1) 4812-726.
