Collection Spring/Summer 2019 "The Athenians"
Our current collection aspires to unite two forms of art in two Greek historic periods. The Golden Period of ancient Athens around 5th century BC as is illustrated on the red figured vases of that time with the contemporary Greek intense literary spirit of the beginning of the 20th century. Two arts: magnificent handmade pottery and the greatest poetry in Greek literature. The inspiration is prevalent in the ancient runner patterns of the Panathenaia games and in Cavafy’s handwritten “Ithaca” poem. Two arts and two times emerge to describe the journey, the effort, the timeless voyage that comprises life. The designs of the fabrics as well as the colours and patterns showcase these artistic influences and create another form of art merging history, literature and fashion. This dual feeling is what describes the woman of Ergon Mykonos, strong and sensitive, capable and unique, free and yet specific.
