“Figures” loved and idealized

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.

Lavish

The previous week had a taste of sumptuousness since leather, diamonds and haute perfumerie was involved. The presentation of the whole Armani Prive perfume collection brought to light some treasures of the Mediterranean and rare scents of the East. Between fig, cedar and jasmine I opted for more heavy scents, like Ambre Soie and Myrrhe Imperiale, the ones that somehow I always end up wearing.

Yannis Sergakis has designed those fantastic rings you see below and I found a new personal favorite jeweler (saving money for the rose ring). Another fragrance set arrived at my door by Hermes, that evokes the freshness of early spring.

A fine soft leather jacket and pencil skirt by V Society is my latest obsession, I love the color and the texture. In this suit I feel capable of everything.

Zeus+Dione

Inspired by the parents of goddess Aphrodite, Zeus+Dione is one of those greek brands that relies on the long greek tradition and the history of the refined craftsmanship of long-hold technicians, handpicked manufacturers and small workshops from all over Greece. Silk from Soufli, cotton fabrics woven on the loom, handmade leather sandals and jewels are the keys to the summer collection, inspired by geometry, doric rhythm and timeless simplicity.

Yesterday at the brand’s presentation at King George Hotel.

In leather we trust

Madly in love with those V Society leather cropped pants in mint green. They might look a bit vintage but they’re so modern and fresh – I grow fonder everyday of this designer based in Glyfada, there’s not a single thing that I wouldn’t wear from her winter collection. Here paired with a sheer shirt and an off-white satin tuxedo jacket, both Les Petites. Snake skin sandals with chunky heels from Nak.
