10 times Prada

Sasha Pivovarova started her career in 2005 when she opened the fall Prada show in Milan. Since then the Russian top model and Prada House have fallen in fashion love.

This year they celebrate their 10th campaign cooperation with the resort 2013 campaign, shot by Steven Meisel in a 70s mood.

summer extension

It has been nothing of an autumn since the 1st of September so, a few days ago, I took the opportunity to pamper myself with something like a holidays extension at Costa Navarino. Relaxation overload in a magnificent location on the west coast of Peloponese, that was quite a surprise for me, since I didn’t know the resort’s highlight: an immense beach with thin, blonde sand and crystal clear water. Could I possibly ask for more? I did actually. I made a good use of the Anazoe Spa, I ate gigantic breakfasts, Ι picked lavender for my winter closets and slept for ours on white crisp sheets, feeling as we speak, more than ready to confront the weather change.

Use&Diffuse at TR2

Fashion Director of Vogue Hellas Michael Pandos, in coordination with George C.Carabellas, owner of TR2 concept boutique, curated the creation of a capsule collection by five Greek designers. The result is a limited edition of unisex pieces (in consumer-fiendly prices), with the signature of some of the best names in greek fashion (Sotiris Georgiou, Dimitris Petrou, Katerina Psoma, Stathis Samantas and Chris P.), and it was presented yesterday at TR2 The Kolonaki edition, in another “Dolce Far Niente” Wednesday.

Black is the new Black is Back

Black is the new Black (or how another great gig by Korres left me cheering).

Our beloved greek beauty brand is launching “Black Professional”, a full smokey-eyes kit, with black pencils/mascaras/eyeliners based on new technology that promise to stay where they should, like, forever.

Make up artist Yannis Siskos was there to demonstrate a “how-to” for the perfect smokey-eyes look (and not only that).

Mariaflora tried her skills on me and the outcome was not bad at all, although I looked more like Sehrazat than a tired Kate Moss (or Carine Roitfeld for that matter), which was the initial reference.

An afternoon dedicated to black, from the deco to the AMAZING catering -black burgers, seriously- that we took home, together with a couple of Korres spoil-me bags. Now I have to practice.

Sometimes I’m Milk/ Sometimes I’m Honey

Monday morning October 8th was a girl thing: Milk & Honey invited athenian girls, myself included, to be featured in their new campaign -coming up the following days. All of us had the chance to choose a favourite Milk&Honey outfit  for the story, so I was really excited to slip into a couple of beautiful pants and silk tops. The photographer was no other than George Malekakis and a video is on its way as well, by Ioanna Chatziandreou.
Special thanks to Milk & Honey girls, Morfe for the make up, Ioanna and Mirella Alexou for grabbing my camera and creating backstage memorabilia. A few photos from the shooting used as a teaser for what’s coming up next!

Dressed in Somf

Showing off my SOMF laser cut skirt in the streets of Paris and at Costa Navarino during last

weekend – a safe method to have all eyes on you, let me tell you.

at Viktor&Rolf fashion show

That was the only show that I catched at Tuilleries, since the rest were scattered all around Paris (poor me).

I must say I enjoyed Viktor&Rolf Summer 2013 collection more than last summer’s. More wearable clothes, soft and a bit 80s -many long dresses for next year if you’ve noticed. And is there something with big flowers on clothes? Prada did her own naive version on her collection and Viktor&Rolf adorned some of the garments with big metallic roses.

Gaultier’s Music Stars

Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show was a party, an ode to music stars!

Disco balls and colorful headlights warmed us up of what was next and “Kiss” at the front row was another hint.

Models came out dressed as Grace Jones and then the music changed to Eurythmics “Sweet dreams” and multiple Annie Lenoxes appeared -and then changed again and black models came out as sexy Michael Jacksons under the matching soundtrack. Dancers were giving their own show at the back while gorgeous girls were parading as Charlotte Gainsbourgs, Madonnas, Boy Georges, Sades, Catherine Ringer and David Bowies,

in perfect alignment with the soundtrack!

The finale was dedicated to Amanda Lear playing herself and the show ended with the dancers and Jean-Paul running down the catwalk in laughs, overloading the guests with party vibes!

I have also taken a couple of videos but you have to wait for those a bit, dear fashion junkies.
