Due to the growing comments I get from my male friends about my blog which always go down the, ‘Biki, I like your blog but the articles are more geared towards women’ route; I have decided to make more of an effort with my blog to make it more male-focused. And it is to that end that I decided to take some pictures of my friend, Marijo Konstantinović, who was not only blessed with a face to launch a gazillion ships but who also designs menswear, under the label name, MeJuYuJu.
One of the great things I love about living in Berlin is the fact that I have made good friends with people who are working within the creative spectrum, who I can share my love of clothes design, style and photography with. So for the next few weeks I intend to focus on each and every one of them.
This week I am focusing on Marijo, I recently took a series of pictures at his place to showcase his handiwork and this week I am going to start with my favourite design he made which he is looking to sell at the moment, that goes by the tantalising name, Hanuma:
I also like the way Marijo used classic Japanese fabric to make a streetwear-inspired piece. If I had this top, I would hang it somewhere I could see it daily because I feel the print could pass of as a painting.
In my opinion, Hanuma is a unisex piece of clothing but I would much rather see a man pulling this top of than a woman, because I love to see men wear clothes that show they are not afraid of colour and print.
