How do you remember your travels?
Do you bring home any souvenirs and put them on your shelf together with others or you take million photographs and go through them once in a while?
Perfect souvenir that I’m bringing from my trips is fashion.
My closet is full of clothes that I even don’t wear that much any more but I brought it from somewhere and it reminds me so vividly about the trip, the city, the country.
I can in some cases bring in mind even the store and the occasion where and why I bought it.
Together with my Lonely Planet or DK travel books I have a very big amount of memories channelled through pieces of clothing, jewellery, bags, shoes and other accessories.
As a global adventurer, Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp graduate, Martin Margiela, Céline under Phoebe Philo and The Row designer, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, today Creative Director of the iconic French fashion house Hermès, explains her rules for luxury travel dressing to a Porter Magazine in 2016 interview.
One of the rules stuck with me as it was my words she was interpreting.
Think of your clothes as story tellers:
“I think holding onto clothing is almost like a fetishistic part of me.
I have this belief that there is a kind of soul imbued in them, a spirit, and parting with them would be like giving a part of myself away.
There are memories connected to clothing, and I collect pieces from around the world as souvenirs.
They remind me of who and where I was at a certain point in my life.
I don’t keep a written diary, my clothes are like a record of my travels.”
This is what I wanted to offer with my Shopping Tours in Split and Sibenik.
Unique and extraordinary pieces as long term memories from your Mediterranean journey.
You may say that you can do it on your own, wander around the city centre and find all the creatives I incorporated into my tours, and I know that there are people who love to search and discover on their own and I greet them and wish them welcome to my city.
But if you are interested in the creativity and uniqueness of the citizens of these two cities in Mediterranean, maybe you don’t have time to wander on your own, or you want to see what another creative and a local from here selected to present to you, you are at the right place and the right time dialling this number +385 98 315 352.
My shopping tours don’t need to be and are not exclusively money spending tours.
Split or Sibenik Tour is a tour with a soul.
Every designer shop or a gallery I’m taking you in has it’s told or untold story and you are the one to take it with you, to make it live with you where ever you go next.
I think creative people are the human force, a human touch in this new robotic, insensitive and cold world. Help me tell the creative story of the Mediterraneans by walking the tours with me.
