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.
