A collection inspired by the painters of the revolution during the early 19th century, who left behind an enormous heritage for the generations to come.
SS21 is a tribute to the 200 years of Greece’s liberation from 400 years of slavery by the Ottoman Empire. The inspiration comes from a research of the history and the scenes depicted with “journalistic detail” on the canvases by Eugene Delacroix, William Turner, August Vinson, Nikolaos Gyzis, and many others.
The textiles and designs emerge to revive a kind of tableau vivant composed by the pleats of foustanela skirt and tsarouxi shoes worn from the heroes prepared for war, the Agamemnon boat owned by the heroic figure of Bouboulina and the jewelry pattern designed on the blouses of Greeks during that me.
This year’s narrative is an anniversary to freedom; an opportunity for redefinition; a tribute to the female figure of the time. Strongly artistic and symbolic this new empowering collection serves as a stylistic dialogue that joins the past with the present.
