Croatia: A Face Of Beautiful People

2013 summer season has well and truly passed in Croatia and downtown Zagreb is once again abuzz with the now traditional “Špica” street fashion on Saturdays.
Coming from the German word “shpitze” meaning “tip”, the Zagreb “špica” is almost a unique social phenomenon that doesn’t happen that often in other European cities.
It happens on Saturday mornings, more precisely between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.. People get out to do things they didn’t have time for throughout the week on Saturday morning – going to the market, doing some shopping around town, meeting friends for a coffee and catching up etc. But what is specific about “špica” is that everyone tends to do that in the range of a couple of streets downtown, looking their best.
So, if you take a walk around Bogoviceva, “Cvjetni trg” area, Tkalciceva and the Ban Jelacic Place (main square), you’ll see women dressed in latest styles and fabulous accessories as if they just came out of the hairdressers, some in the highest imaginable heels just being their everyday fabulous selves. And the men aren’t far behind either. It’s the place to be seen and to show off the latest trends in fashion.
So, if you want to see the best of the best in Zagreb, meet celebrities and celebrity wannabes, witness the latest trends, or bump into almost everyone you know in Zagreb, “špica” is the place to go.
Certainly, given the harsh economic climate and not a great deal of spare cash to spend on fashion in many cases, the “tip” of Zagreb is a living example that one does not need a great amount of money to look stylish. Money cannot buy style as with relatively little one can truly shine. All one needs is the will to uplift ones spirits and take pride in ones appearance.

Following are photos from the streets of Zagreb this past Saturday 2 November.  Just fabulous! Elegant! Proud! Ina Vukic, Prof. (Zgb); B.A., M.A.Ps. (Syd)
