Grubić design

Croatian jewellery brand with an over 30 years long tradition

Grubic design is a Croatian jewellery brand with an over 30 years long tradition. It all began in the late 1980s when a Zagreb based design enthusiast Mladen Grubić made his first pieces of jewellery. It was Mladen’s hard work and strong desire to succeed in this imaginative and creative business that kept him going in those first years of development and search for his designer trademark. Twenty years later, Mladen is still working diligently, but with the help from his son Petar, who joined him after high-school. Soon, this family-based business blossomed into an actual brand. Thanks to their joint forces and Peter’s sense for business development, Grubic design now has five of their own stores throughout Croatia. Furthermore, the brand has established numerous business partnerships, both at home and abroad.

The designer duo’s opus comprises a variety of collections, styles, materials and countless innovations. According to them, their inexhaustible inspiration stems from rich historical periods and Mother Nature, which never ceases to amaze them. From this, collections such as Elizabeth I, Baroque collections or Knights collection – Urban warriors are born. Their main means for jewellery making are real leather and metal alloys, followed by all sorts of glass and crystal. Likewise, they work with tropical corals, freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones.

One of the things they are most proud of is their long-lasting collaboration with the grand Croatian singer Josipa Lisac. Not only has she been their ambassador for years, but also she continues to be an everlasting source of inspiration when it comes to the interpretation of their work in real life.

By following their long-term motto “From street fashion to extravagance” Grubic design managed to resist capricious trends and stay true to its original idea.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
