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.
I had so much fun during this photoshoot with Ioanna Chatziandreou and Konstantinos Danos of Didee, I wish everyday was just like that. Thank you both for the beautiful presentation ♡
I grow fonder and fonder of this young designer and his earthy, softly-constructed garments
Sunday’s lovesong is dedicated to the late Jenny Vanou that passed away last week and the greek jazz of the 60s
Column dresses made of silk jersey, by Orsalia Parthenis. Backstage while working.
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.
