Collaborations

Peter Movrin 

Peter Movrin is known for his impressive unisex pieces with massive silhouettes. His work has won numerous prizes and was part of exhibitions such as the MoBa Biennale, where his graduation collection Franz Madonna was shown next to Jean Paul Gaultier, Maison Martin Margiela and Prada. Lady Gaga has been spotted wearing several of his creations. Movrin's main inspiration has always been his childhood, where tradition, God and meat were the subject of everyday life. As an only son of a butcher in a small Slovenian town, surrounded by woods and bears, his growing up marked him with a roughness that he transcends in his designs with a special kind of romanticism. In this hard provincial life meat became his medium of expression, as a child he would carve steaks in a way that would appeal to his bewildered eye. There were, however, also fresh issues of Vogue magazines in the house, brought from trips to Trieste, that stirred up his imagination. Because he wanted to understand garments in-depth he first studied fashion textile, but was soon drawn to designing. He designs with meticulous attention to detail and longing for newness. Leather and wool are still his favourite materials. To get the effect of surprise he juxtaposes these two traditional materials with others, perhaps not typically associated with the textile industry. An important part of his design process is treating natural and synthetic fabrics with various methods, using heat, chemicals or other techniques, thus combining innovation and tradition. Peter Movrin's ambition is not to create clothes but rather adornments for body. The thinking process behind each of his multi-functioning designs is understanding garments as something very dear and precious, as something that is meant to last, like a great piece of jewellery. He is tremendously passionate about craftsmanship, couture and handmade details, believing this is the one real advantage of young independent designers. To get to that level of craftsmanship all of Peter Movrin clothes are made in Europe. Movrin is studying at Central Saint Martins MA Womenswear. Collections are made in Italy and the United Kingdom.

 

 

Frachella
This summer, we joined our creative forces with Frachella, a young and passionate bags designer from Slovenia. We created a spunky handbag that combines Viva’s typical minimalistic leather silhouette with Frachella’s signature fringe. It comes in two perfect shades: navy and peach. We love the relaxed, boho vibe it emanates - just perfect for a nights out with your girlfriends.

Mateja Kovač
“My name is Mateja Kovač and I live in a little town called Samobor that is placed near the capital city of Croatia, Zagreb. I was always fascinated with design, because for me design was always like a complicated mathematical formula that cannot be "solved only by knowledge but also needs a lot of love and devotion to make it work. I have been practicing different branches of art, well it seems like forever now, but officially I graduated the Art academy in the year 2006. Since then my art has taken me from restoration, classical painting, interior design and finally today, to the place I can call my home…illustration.”

Nina Štajner

“My name is Nina and I'm an aspiring illustrator and graphic design graduate. I am mostly known for illustrating tender, whimsical and furry cute animals in a soft and delicate manner. I work with traditional media (mostly using watercolours, gouache and colored pencils) but I also create artwork digitally. Besides commercial work I love doing self initiated projects where I try to collaborate with other artists, experiment, challenge myself and grow as an artist. When I am not making art I love to travel, wander, explore nature, daydream, bake, ride my bike, do yoga, make dreamcatchers and find beauty in simple things”.
