Stefania Frangista, the young girl that used to make pink hued teen bikinis grew up and matured through her designs and experience, and is here to present for Summer 2015 her most feminine work by now:
an elegant collection inspired by the island of Hydra in a charming color palette.
Here are my personal picks.
Last Saturday I visited a small but original exhibition that takes place at Museum of Cycladic Art by the end of March, where you have the opportunity to meet the poems of well-known Alexandrian poet C.P. Cavafy alongside the figures that play a leading role in his poetry. “Inspired by the verse “Voices, loved and idealized” from Cavafy’s poem Voices, the exhibition uses archaeological artefacts to illustrate a selection of poems with mythological and, especially, historical subjects, which experts believe comprise approximately one third of Cavafy’s work”.
“Statues and portraits of Alexander the Great, Dimitrios Poliorcetes, Iulius Caesar or Nero, are presented in align with Cavafy’s poems, bearing the aura of the Hellenistic period, which the Alexandrian poet admired and referred to the most. And of course the parable, the irony and the meaning.”
Every Thursday at 20.00 and weekends at 13.00 a Guided Tour is available at no extra charge.
Older and new, those were my allies for the previous weekend by the seaside: The Detailors limited edition bikini, my Beirut type caftan, a clutch from Asos, the genious Charouhi-sea urchin beach bag of Katie Poutous made by organic cotton and the Te.Pareopareos for my clan.
