So happy & honored to have been chosen as a Greek Ambassador for Twilly d’Hermès, the new women’s perfume by Hermès! Inspired by the colorful, silk scarves, Twilly d’Hermès is such a daring fragrance, floral, spicy & exotic! “Designed for women who swim against the tide, impose their own rhythm and invent a brand new tempo ” – Christine Nagel, Hermès perfumer.
Can you think of anything better?!
LOVE to start my day with #Twilly !
Check the Video I made below:
Hermès has a strong, sophisticated personality, but it is the pure elegance, combined with the French origin that really make up the essence of the brand. The iconic “Birkin” bags unmistakably stand out; wanted by many, envied by even more; a symbol of class & refinement. However, at the Athenian party “Carré Mania”, celebrating the renovation of the Hermès boutique in Athens, it was the colorful scarves that stole the spotlight and took center stage. It was undoubtedly one of the best parties I have ever been to in Athens. Everything was organized and presented to the nines. The hosts were no other than Pierre- Alexis Dumas, Creative Director and Francesca Di Carrobio, Director of Hermès in Greece. The night was magical, full of color and silk…
I’ve known Eugenia Kokkala-Mela since we were both teenagers, spending our greek summers in Spetses. So, I was thrilled to write this post about HEROES, her sophisticated Souvenir Shop – an absolute gem in Athens, Plaka! She has always been this incredible beauty, so opinionated and educated that carries the air of a Greek girl that has grown up and lived most of her life abroad.
I mostly write about Greek brands and designers, but Italian designer’s Sara Battaglia’s bags have been on my wish list for quite some time now…! Her burgundy Lips Tote bag (currently sold out!) initially caught my attention, for it is just a perfect mix of chic, witty and contemporary take for a day bag! Then, I obviously started following her on insta and loved all of her rainbow bucket bags, elegant cross body bags & fringed clutches that truly resemble no other.
I was introduced to Eugenie Niarchos a few years ago, through some common friends, and I have witnessed her both on vacation and in sheer professional mode. The first thing I feel the urge to write about her is that she oozes elegance like no other. Yes, she is extremely stylish and very fashionable, but her real charm is not about that. Her mannerisms, stare, the subtle tone of her voice are so polite, kind and aristocratic that constitute the essence of her fair beauty.
When Tereza Callitsas, the designer behind 275th Athens and a good friend, asked me to model for her F/W 2016-2017 sexy, velvet collection, my first reaction was:
– Yes! And then… Wait, don’t you want someone taller? I mean, like a real model that can really pose?
To which she replied:
– Fotini, I’ve seen you pose a hundred times for instagram, I’m sure you can pull it off! : )
I have known Athens based jewellery designer, Elena Syraka, for many years and not only am I a huge admirer of her very creative jewels, but also of Elena’s elegant personality and dynamic take.
Recently, I had the amazing experience and distinct honor of getting introduced to the fashion Emperor – Valentino, who came to Athens for a brief visit.
I met this amazing woman, Juliet Angus, almost two years ago at #LoveRocks charity ball.
Eléftheria Karela is an old family friend of mine and a crazy talented jewellery designer!
Tereza Callitsas, the designer behind the sold out and incredible cool, greek brand 275th Athens, is a very good friend of mine. She has a spicy spark like no other, she is creative and beautiful and together we have spent some awesome nights and days, both in London during our uni years and in Greece.
One of the best things about having this blog is that I get to feature my wonderful and talented friends! In this particular post, I’m so thrilled to write about the beautiful, boho-chic, Colombian sisters Juanita & Andrea,
Greek based and internationally appraised jewelery designer, Nikos Koulis, is a longtime friend and the most elegant man I know.
My incredibly talented friend Zhouli Maggie Wang, is the designer behind the ZHOULII label.
Last week, I had the amazing opportunity of going to the Opening Night Gala of the much anticipated Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition, at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
