Monthly Archives: January 2011

brownie points

the new year for me started with loads of work – ‘tell us something we don’t know’ i hear someone saying in the back- and with some new pretty small things attached to my everyday life, that i tend to believe they’re my lucky charms for 2011.

i got my annual Missoni agenda full of colors that brighten the daily programm and a leather Smythson ‘secrets and wishes’ pocket-size notebook that i love and always carry with for my notes and thoughts and the unknown words in my vocabulary (a learner always, like Abraham Lincoln)

the Pierre Hardy ss2011 clutch for my basics and a brand new Olympus Pen camera *eyes blinking* which i take to bed with me every night, together with a big book of instructions that i have to read and memorize. it couldn’t be simple, could it.

Katerina Psoma and Zerteo pendants sent to me as a gift at my first working day in the beginning of January

…and Betty, the new member of the family that arrived out of the blue to make herself comfortable on the couch and freak Leeloo out that used to be the queen of the house. after me that is.

let’s welcome the new season!

and this is the full story i did for Vogue Hellas February 2011 issue, with a great team:

and if my model reminds you something maybe it’s because she’s Anne-Sophie Monrad, the hottie new-comer that walked at Chanel’s pre-fall 2011 and SS2011 shows, was shot for BCBG Max Azria and Wunderkind campaigns and photographed by Miles Aldrige for Italian Vogue!

30′s revisited

the latest issue of Vogue Hellas features my first summer story for 2011, inspired by 30′s- a powerful trend for the new season, note it down- with wide pants, midi skirts, art-deco-like chunky jewelry and platforms. backstage stressful photos taken while working. the full story and more info about it tomorrow.

Wow I was shocked to see this picture at Mara Desipris‘ site, which I had almost forgotten- but not the story behind it, which goes like this: back in 2007 me, Mara and Michael Pandos with the rest of the team travelled to Sri Lanka to shoot a couple of summer stories for Vogue Hellas. One of them included some pictures taken downtown at Colombo, where we found an enormous golden statue of Buddha and we all thought “Aahhh that would be an amazing picture!”. Unfortunately the natives didn’t actually appreciate the beauty of the Chanel hot pants, were fret in the beginning and got really furious after five minutes and before we know it they were yelling at fluent Ceylonese and we rushed into the cars right in the moment when some of them started picking rocks from the ground.. Don’t even want to think what would have happened but every time i recall the scene I feel the terror down my spine. huge mistake but who would have known? the picture was never published after the strict request of the hotel owners that were having us as guests on the island.

androgyne

Ladies and gents, meet the number one ‘guess-the-gender’ model, ranked #16 among the 50 top male models as we speak. Andreij Pejic is the new sweetheart of the fashion industry, having participated at Gaultier’s latest fashion show, in campaigns and shootings for fashion magazines such as I-D and Vogue Paris and already collaborated with Steven Meisel.
