We at Bazerdžan are more than happy to say that we are back in business full time. We remained busy during the period, taking the opportunity to be creative and work within the confines of home. In a way, the slowdown and change of scenery (so to speak) was a refreshing change but still - we missed our Bazerdžan store and meeting our community of designers, artists, collaborators, and supporters face to face.
It’s been almost three weeks now since we reopened the doors to our little shop of delight, people are out and about, and as some lockdown measures and restrictions are being lifted, life as we know it is returning - with mandatory post-coronavirus guidelines, of course. Fresh air, warm spring sun, the feeling of positivity is being felt at every corner. It all feels like one big (but welcome) fresh start, doesn’t it?
There are still some kinks to work out. For instance, shipping still remains largely available in Bosnia & Herzegovina and some parts of Europe. Our US and Australian customers will have to wait a little longer until shipments across the pond and down under are possible. However, we expect them to be available very soon - we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you’re in the area, feel free to drop by our shop and hang out (with appropriate social distancing rules, of course) - we missed you!
With these new developments, we choose to celebrate life as we know it and love. With the re-opening of Sarajevo (so to speak), the Eid Ramadan holiday upon us, and summer vibes just around the corner, we’ve been hard at work to make the transition as smooth as possible. For that to happen - you need to feel good, and feeling good inevitably comes when you look good.
Hence, we’ve come up with a few of our favorite holiday and summer wears for this 2020 revival of sorts. Some are designed by yours truly, others by designers we adore, all with the goal to immediately create a positive antidote for all the doom and gloom we’ve been through. I think we can all agree we’ve had enough of those.
Next up, we have one of our favorite designers - Ljiljana Majkić and two of her dresses, extravagant as always - we wouldn’t like it any other way. You can combine this special splash of orange or classic black with our Potka embroidered socks and masks with the imprint of endangered local animal species, and the latest line of BazerdzanWear cylinder-shaped bags.
Another BazerdzanWear item, this time in collaboration with KETI Handmade: naturally dyed elegant silk shirts. You will be feeling special in these knowing that each piece of cloth done by KETI is different and 100% natural.
We also have the kimono version:
In the mood for some comfy cotton dresses? Here is a line by PlusMinus we absolutely love, complete with etching and linocut technique graphics. It’s a distinct style of PlusMinus designer Ena Dujmović, and it will make you look exactly like that - distinct.
The final entry on the list is one of the Bazerdžan Wear classics: soft cotton dress with puff sleeves. We’ve updated it with additional colors, now available in dark rose, blue/violet, beige, black, and white variant. We never get tired of this one.
That would conclude our little list of summer combinations ideal for a little fun in the sun but also to glam it up a bit.
