vinyls and a greyhound

a part of Vogue Hellas 60’s story for september issue was shot at Maquillazoo make up salon, the new store of Fotis Sergoulopoulos at Syntagma square, a vintage jewel with 60’s furniture and retro aesthetics. my personal favorite photos of Sophia Holmes is the one laying on the couch with some 45s on the floor, dressed in Jean-Paul Gaultier brocade deux-pieces and Casadei satin pumps  and the other in Celine, with the extra-terrestrial Italian Greyhound Fonda de Princes de Minos that stole our hearts.

Houston Cafe

The most beautiful coffee shop I’ve ever seen.
Owned previously by a greek that worked and fortuned in Texas and returned to Patmos island, and now run by the senior sister of the family. Originally decorated by them in the 60s praising the American Dream, Houston Cafe is a vintage paradise where no man’s hand has ever alternated its retro beauty and no decorator has ever added a single pot.
Conde Nast design magazine World of Interiors dedicated a few pages to this small jewel two years ago. Stamatia will serve you greek coffee but only if she likes you. We had our moments.




Miu Miu launches its new Sneakers, a brand new addition to the Miu Miu Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, decorated with glitter, metal tips, or appliquéd crystals. Looks like the kind of sneakers i would wear.

In need of heavier embroidery? check the crystal dresses of Dolce & Gabbana for the summer, you can’t find anything more precious than that. And definitely nothing that weighs more.
