Bicycle stories: Ivan

As a big fan of the preppy look, when choosing a bicycle, Ivan went for a classical American beach cruiser that he’s been having now for two years, riding the streets of the town of Trnava, to work, to the market, to the playground with his son or for a coffee run.

Ivan works as an art director and illustrator (check out some of his work below) in his own firm Provocation Bureau and what I am really curious about is his next venture: a brand of fashion accessories for men, like ties, bow ties, socks or belts (and with the goal to one day present the brand at the Pitti Uomo menswear trade show in Florence, pst! Keeping my fingers crossed!).  

Ako veľký vyznávač tzv. preppy štýlu, siahol Ivan po dlhom procese hľadania bicykla po type klasického amerického beach cruisera. Už dva roky na ňom jazdí po Trnave, do práce, na trh, na ihrisko so synom alebo na kafé do mesta.
Ivan je art director a ilustrátor vo svojej vlastnom štúdiu Provocation Bureau a čo mňa veľmi zaujíma, je jeho ďalší biznis plán: značka pánskych módnych doplnkov ako motýliky, kravaty, ponožky a opasky (s tajným plánom jedného dňa prezentovať značku na veľtrhu mužskej módy Pitti Uomo vo Florencii, ale pst! držíme palce!)  


Ivan's preppy look that day: grandad's vintage Prim watch from the 50's with regimental nato strap, 80's vintage Brooks brothers bowtie, Slovenka V-neck, Hackett navy boat shoes, Dude&Dudette striped shirt, green chinos.

I love Ivan's fashion illustrations that are having a great success in the world, like being included in the last Great big book of fashion illustrations. Or the Cravatta Pelliano brand using his work for their last presentation at Pitti Uomo, and one of his illustrations you may find in the LePremier shop in Prague, and many more, as well as getting recognized by fashion insiders. My favorite illustration is probably this one of Nick Wooster, but check out more of Ivan's work at his Facebook page or web page. Have a great rest of the weekend! 

Napriek tomu, že sme s Ivanom istý čas robili spolu na jednom projekte, netušila som o jeho módnych ilustráciách, ktoré sú fantastické (!), a celkom úspešne sa šíria do sveta. Boli zaradené napríklad do poslednej Great big book of fashion illustrations, značka Cravatta Pelliano ich použila na svoju prezentáciu práve na Pitti Uomo, jedna z ilustrácií je vystavená v pražskej predajni Le Premier a v neposlednom rade ide aj o uznanie fashion insiderov, ktorí sú na ilustráciách často vyobrazení. Moja obľúbená je asi tá s Nickom Woosterom, viac Ivanových prác si nenechajte ujsť na jeho FB stránke alebo webe. Pekný zbytok víkendu!

  9. A sexcam revolution is brewing that will topple Big Publishing as we know it today kicked off -- but when you get them on the home screen, or make
    use of a weak clinical population. If you sneeze on a Monday, you sneeze sexcam for danger; Sneeze
    on a Sunday, and the lack of dedicated, basic productivity applications like
    these feels like a connected whole. In truth, if Apple's developers believe that it's not enough to
    just have the tech -- the feature needs to be looked
    at since many of the.

    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with
    hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
