Prada Graffiti

Prada “Graffiti” is a playful capsule collection of ready-to-wear garments and accessories that mix contrasting and loud colors. A selection that speaks through images from the muralists, mixing them up and reinterpreting them to explore the many facets of femininity.

On sale from April, offering a range of styles in cotton teamed with suede sandals.

Sotiris Georgiou Summer 2014

“Complexity is Simplicity” is the name of the Spring-Summer 2014 collection of Sotiris Georgiou, aiming to state a game based on fashion maths. Adding and subtracting on the same garment. The balance between all the information gathered, minus the minimal frame. Clustered pleats fold and unfold in monochrome, a busy front equals a quiet back and vise versa.

I tried on all my favorite pieces  and if it was in mind hand, I’d wear the men collection too.

Oo la la! Dentelle!

I was long dreaming about this skirt and it’s finally home: A magnificent sheer black and nude piece with embroidered lace hem by DeuxHommes. I styled it in different ways and it looks gorgeous all the way.
The most daring combination would be with my vintage open back Alaia body but it also looks great over a lingerie dress with lace trim and a masculine suit jacket on top. I even tried it with an oversized boyfriend knitted jumper and guess what,
it still is drop dead beautiful.

Premiere boutique – Opening day

Remember my visit at the Premiere boutique? Yesterday was the
the official Opening Day of this cute shop of Mimika Ciboyianni, where you are able to find not only her jewelry but also Lefteris Yiannikos winter collection. I deeply enjoyed the new bio beer “32″ – ideal for vegans, too- , Sweetheart cookies and a great mixtape my brother Panos did especially for the event. A perfect intro to the weekend I say.

All us girls below are wearing outfits of the two designers.

Wish list

A walk at McArthurGlen Athens is never disappointing. I came across Carlo Pazolini shop where I found dozens of ultra elegant brogues and masculine mid-heel shoes that looked great with a Pierre Balmain double breasted jacket I saw later at Alberta Ferretti. Note to reader: At Alberta Ferretti you can also find incredible stuff of other fashion houses such as Dsquared2, John Galliano, Red Valentino and more. I’m making my Christmas wish list and shoes has always been my starting point. Now I can delightfully add a Dsquared2 gown and that gorgeous Pierre Balmain jacket.

If you’re planning to pay a visit at McArthurGlen keep in mind the big celebration on Friday November 15th, when the Christmas tree will be lit!

From left to right: Booties and brogues at Carlo Pazolini. Pierre Balmain jacket, Dsquared2 wallet, Malo pumps, Dsquared2 black & white gown and crystal bracelet, Alberta Ferretti beaded tulle dress, all at Alberta Ferretti shop.

New arrivals: Premiere boutique

I am VERY excited about this: Premiere boutique is the new it shop located at 22 Laodikis str. in Glyfada, of jewelry & accessories designer Mimika Ciboyianni. Apart from Mimika’s new collection of statement jewels and bags, you can also find some amazing pieces by fashion designer Lefteris Yiannikos -and many more to come as I was informed. I went a bit crazy with the clothes and here is my top selection (I’m obsessed with the deux pieces suits, the brocade skirt-shorts, the peplum belts and the new necklaces).

Oh so vintage

After its huge success last year, A.N.G.E.L.O vintage returned at Mcarthurglen Athens, with new vintage jewels that need to find a new home. If you ask me, I’d suggest to invest either on a great bag, which you can find in really good prices, or a nice coat – I think that the coats of A.N.G.E.L.O’s collection are pretty amazing, just take a look at the green leather patchwork below and the blue velvet cape. The Vintage Festival starts today, until the 3rd of November. The sooner you visit, the more you’ll get to discover.

Lots to share

So that’s what’s new these days.

I’ll go pink for the winter (God forgive me) with a wool boyfriend coat from Marks&Spencer new collection, that hits the store of Ermou street on Thursday 26th. It’s oversized and I love it for that. In the same collection named Britains Leading Ladies”, I found a pair of leopard wedge booties, not very high/not too low. Soon to be mine, as well. For those who like it punked, a great part of the new Marks&Spencer line consists of leather jackets, tartan fabrics, leather skinny pants and british inspired motifs.

Moreover, I tried the new Ibuki skincare of the incomparable Shiseido. The name of it means “Fresh breath” and that is a promise made. The facial foam is the best I’ve ever tried, I swear. New obsessions: Shiseido lipstick PK303, Essie nail polish “For the twill of it”.

September’s treat: The fig sorbet I tried during my small getaway last weekend, for which I have plenty to share soon.

The art of Denim

I wanted to get a denim pencil skirt this season so bad, only for one reason: to wear it with a classic men’s shirt. Boxy, slouchy, in light blue, open in front, perfect. During the #ArtOfDenim event at McArthurGlen I went straight ahead at Oxford Company and requested for a medium sized men’s shirt -didn’t even had to try it on. I paired it with a Replay pencil skirt with a flared detail on the back and a gold horn necklace with orange jade from Li-La-Lo. And voila!
More photos to follow.
