AUTUMN WINTER 2017-18

“Women in the garden”  – Collection Demi Couture – Autumn/Winter 2017-2018

April 1987 – April 2017: Thirty years after their first encounter during a photoshoot, photographer Mara Desypris and designer Vassilis Zoulias join their visionary minds for an original project. A homage to their long lasting friendship and their devotion to fashion. They return back to the 19th iron kiosk in the National Garden of Athens to invite fashion lovers to a brilliant unique show. While she opened and closed the show, her unique artistic personality fascinated the audience leaving an indelible mark. The designer was inspired by the famous painting of Claude Monet, “Women in the Garden” and the crowd was carried away to a romantic walk in Old Athens of the Victorian era. This specific collection paid tribute to the women in his life since most of them walked the aisle to honor him.

Black, white and red hues dominated the collection. Colored precious cashmeres, taffetas, crêpe georgette, silk, organza and brocard moulded long black gowns, and little black dresses, fire red cocktail dresses and full skirts. Discrete transparency was also present with lace dominating and sexy cutouts surprisingly daring but equally chic. The sexy 50s hourglass shape was genuinely translated to today’s aesthetics glorifying femininity. Handmade high heeled classic black stilettos and sexy mules completed the looks.

Artist and jewelry designer Pericles Kondylatos created masterpieces once again – elaborated tree branches, silk roses and crystal details turned to Victorian adornments highlighted the best way the renaissance of an era.
