“The collaboration between contemporary art and fashion is of great effect. It’s what makes people open their eyes. I always get my new ideas from these collaborations, this is why I like to collaborate with yoox.com. I believe contemporary art is a tag for the history, while fashion is an approach for movement”.

There are some new entries on the block and here is all in full display.
I love sector “Beauty” but those of you who know me for a while most probably have noticed that I have a thing with hair. I use a few beauty products but 
hair, well is my thing you know.

First of all, Kérastase has a new, quite important launch. “Discipline”  is a procedure that offers discipline, of course, and anti frizz control to the unruly hair that actually stays untouched from humidity, while at the same time is easier to style. It is divided in two parts: The first one is the Discipline Protocol that you get to do in an authorized hairdresser. I did mine at Ilias Zarbalis, and I came out with smooth, shiny and lightweight hair that will last for ten hairwashes. The second part is the one you do at home by using accordingly the shampoo, mask and anti-frizz spray, to preserve the “Discipline” effect. I loved it. 

Famous, beloved greek brand Korres just put out the most magnificent CC Cream I have ever used, based on Wild Rose, the trademark ingredient of Korres beauty products since the very beginning. This colour correcting cream SPF30 is a multi-tasking product: a moisturizer that brightens the skin while at the same time covers all the imperfections, for a make up free look.

And then we have a very uncommon perfume, “Black Opium”. Coffee Floral, boyish and dark the new fragrance by Yves-Saint Laurent 37 years after the launch of the legendary “Opium” is highly addictive. And how cool is that bottle, right.

Ariadne’s Thread

And this is how I intend to infuse some greek tradition in my everyday wardrobe.
The winter collection of Zeus + Dione is a cavalcade of handmade greek-folk inspired pieces made of the finest fabrics
like thick cotton, greek silk and woven wool.
The accessories series is enriched with some leather bags, shoes, belts and hand crochet wool pouches. As for the “Astypalea” cotton blouse and the high waisted trousers, this is my kind of perfect outfit.

Derrière

Paris is not known for its yards and terraces but this is not the case with restaurant Derrière, a place with delicious food, a charming terrace and the most inspiring decoration -parisian fusion I would call it- with trimmed Chesterfield sofas,
baroque wallpapers and vintage furniture.
Thanks to my parisian friend Isabelle, I now know the secret door that leads to the smoking sanctuary.
