TR2 Synergies: Moving on/Moving up

After a year at Thission, the concept boutique TR2 is moving to the heart of Athens, in order to provide its clients even more respectful services. Mr. George C. Carabellas invited me amongst other bloggers, to help him with the goodies and celebrate the  transition to the TR2 Kolonaki Edition, with a small photoshoot! I was instantly captured by the clutches and shoulder python bags in every color available on planet earth, once i entered the store, so i knew my destination. A pile of handmade colorful beauties escorted us all the way to Xanthou street, to find their new place in the little gem that is his new design shop.

 

“Nour” by Elena Syraka

Jeweller Elena Syraka draws inspiration from the permanent collection of the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art in downtown Athens and presents “Nour”, a special collection of jewels of excellent technique and beauty, made of gold and precious stones. A wonderful exhibition in total, since each piece is displayed next to the object of the Museum’s collection that inspired it and you get to double enjoy it

peinture flamand

These Flemish are crazy.

Delicate like lace technique, full of explicit scenes and dark details plus the ultimate symbolism, all depicted on the main body of the Flemish painting between the 15th and 18th century.
