Bourg Medved- Medieval architectural gem

Medvedgrad
Medvedgrad

Borough, Bourg or in other words and languages known as Borgo, Burgz, Burg, etc. is a fortified Medieval architectural complex with special characteristics. Bourg is usually mistaken with castles.

Bourg Medved known also as Medvedgrad is the perfect Bourg with all architectural characteristics one should have.

This Medieval fortified building complex is made for living and defense. Situated on the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain, overwatches Croatian capital city, Zagreb. On demand of Catholic priests, it was built between 1249 – 1254. The primal function is to protect the city ( mostly themselves).

During the time Medved owners and inhabitants were all kinds of notable figures from the Catholic Church as well as Hungarian and Croatian nobility.

The last owners of the Bourg were Gregoryanetz family in the 16th century. An earthquake heavily damaged the Bourg Medved after that.

There are many legends and stories about Medved’s inhabitants. Certainly the most intriguing are the stories about Black Queen; Barbara Celjska – extremely beautiful, evil and promiscuous

Do you know the cravat fashion history

The symbolism of the cravat in today’s world is multiple and probably well known but what do you know about its origins? Do you know the cravat homeland and history?

The story says that it originates from a French Royal Regent back in 17. century. Even though I said french actually it was a foreign regent established in 1664. year originally from Croatia.

This army soon becomes very noticeable by war accomplishments but also by a striking fashion statement shawl around the neck.

The red shawl becomes noticeable as a symbol of the Croat regent during the war and the regent simply become known as “Royal Cravates”.

After that war, during the time, the “red shawl” evolves into a garment we all today know as a CRAVAT.

Upoznajmo zimske klasike – Montgomery kaput

 

Montgomery kaput ili Duffel. Karakteristično kopčanje sa zaponcima, dva našivena džepa ( mogu imati zaklop ali ne moraju), kapuljača, pojačanjena ramenom dijelu radi topline i trajnosti.
Montgomery kaput ili Duffel. Karakterizira ga kopčanje sa zaponcima. Dva našivena džepa ( mogu imati zaklop ali ne moraju).  Kapuljača koja štiti od vremenskih uvjeta je jedan od karakterističnih elemenata Montgomerya. Isto vrijedi i za pojačanje u vidu dodatnog sloja tkanine na ramenom dijelu radi topline i trajnosti.

MONTGOMERY kaput – MONTY, DUFFLE, DUFFEL

Sve su to nazivi za modni klasik koji  sa malim izmjena postoji skoro dva stoljeća. Za modu, koja se mijenja nekoliko puta u godini, to je iznimno dug vijek. Zbog toga taj kaput svevremenog dizajna ubrajamo u klasike modne industrije.

Izvornim dizajnom smatra se takozvani “poljski kaput”. Od imena belgijskog grada Duffel koji se nalazi u provinciji Antwerpena potječe jedan od naziva za taj kaput. U tom belgijskom gradiću u kojem se proizvodilo dosta vune proizvodila se i tkanina od koje se prvotno izrađivao kaput. Bila je to gruba vunena tkanina, u prirodnoj ( bežastoj) boji vune. Velika izdržljivost na habanje učinilo ju je  idealnom za kapute tj. vanjsku odjeću.

Kao i brojni drugi ogrtači, Duffel je preko vojske ušao u mušku garderobu. Nakon Poljske najprije su ga počeli koristiti u britanskoj mornarici krajem 19og stoljeća. Kapuljača i debelo vuneno sukno odlično su štitili od vjetra i ostalih vremenskih uvjeta na moru.
