today’s inspiration…

26 Mar

I’ve been postponing this one for a loooong time.  No special reason, I’ve been possessive when it comes to this artist to be honest. There was something I instantly loved: her work made my feel cosy. It was not aiming to be anything more than what it is; sincere, capturing everyday situations, relationships, emotions…. But most importantly I just found it simple and fun…

Casey O’Conell is my recommendation for this months inspiration; , in the spirit of the spring. Why? Because, just like it says on her homepage: “in her imagery Casey is accessible.  The paintings she creates are often autobiographical dialogues that capture both her inner 12 year old and a woman who should know better. She paints what she lives, and what she feels.”

Simple as that…


What’s that I’m spotting? A deer?

23 Mar

I’ve been away for a while, and am very sorry for that, but I’m back in shape and have prepared many new, interesting and bright things for you in the future.

First big news is that, thanks to your constant attention and reading, Lemon lips is moving on and very soon it will change its address from a blog to an official site. The other thing, and I am very pleased to announce is that there will be several other writers;  some of them will guide you through interesting architecture, some through fashion, and I will be here updating you with my favorite locations, shopping spots, musicians,,, and many, many more! But I don’t want to give every detail away and spoil it.

For starters it’s about time for me to introduce you to a brand, most of you probably already heard of, but still it’s more than a fresh name in this region.

Deerspotter is an intriguing design project created by Marko Ćerketa and  Bojan Jovanović. This energetic duo came across the idea of combining edgy cuts with clean lines of graphic design while still on College. This starting idea lead to the birth of a brand that was not just commercial and flat, but is an inside view to the spirit of the streets Deerspotters walk on.

Their second collection features unisex garments with dark but playful prints, and has already concord concept stores in Serbia, and Croatia; such as Belgrade’s top hot spot Supermarket, and Zagreb’s one of personal favorites Prostor.

Yet, knowing, and seeing what these two energetic and idea chasing men are capable off, I’m sooo sure we’ll be hearing more about them in the near future. Till than I’m leaving you with the set of photographs made by Darko Stanimirović.

Spot your ultimate deer and get ready for a hunt!
