(E) A little bit of Croatian culture on the catwalk - a skirt called Croacia


One of their pieces is a skirt called 'Croacia' -- Croatia in Spanish
 

Dear all,

I was just perusing a clothing website called Mango (www.mangoshop.com ) and came across an interesting reference to Croatian culture in its fall clothing collection.

Mango is a Spanish fashion retailer targeting young urban women throughout Europe. They spot developing fashion trends and quickly translate these into the latest looks with mass appeal. One of their pieces is a skirt called "Croacia" -- Croatia in Spanish -- which uses large ribbon bands of Croatian-inspired embroidery work along the waistband and skirt ruffle.

The skirt is available in black with white embroidery, or for a more authentic Croatian look, in white with reddish embroidery. A picture of the white skirt with burgundy embroidery is below.

Interesting to see how some elements of Croatian culture are being disseminated by other Europeans and reinterpreted in something like modern, trendy fashion for a mass audience.

For anyone contemplating buying the skirt, you must live within the EU for purchase and delivery.

regards
Sanja
