My favorite Croatian brand DIORALOP designed by Andreja Bistricic & Maja Merlic is back for SS15 and better than ever.
DIORALOP is inspired by Polaroid pictures, which were created through intentional spills of chemicals and their exposure to different temperatures. This technique yields various colours and patterns, which are digitally printed in the UK, using variety of luxurious fabrics. Inspiration is drawn from subcultures, street fashion and issues with an emotional impact. Andreja’s taste for cut and deconstruction perfectly balanced with Maja’s vision of print and textile manipulation. Every season designers like to tell stories in different ways, using ambiguous fabrics, proportion and silhouette. And it’s seriously getting better and better. Can’t wait to be back in Zagreb and check the store out.
