VÅR & SOMMER 2020
Ο ΠΥΡΗΝΑΣ ΤΟΥ ΕΝΣΤΊΚΤΟΥ ΜΟΥ
ΠΟΛΛΑΠΛΑΣΊΑΖΕΤΑΊ ΣΤΟΥΣ ΓΑΛΑΞΊΕΣ.
ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΩ ΤΟΝ ΕΑΥΤΟ ΜΟΥ
ΣΤΊΣ ΠΕΔΊΑΔΕΣ ΤΩΝ ΗΛΊΩΝ ΜΟΥ.
THE ESSENCE OF MY INSTINCT
AUGMENTED IN THE GALAXIES.
I FOLLOW MYSELF
INTO THE VALLEYS OF MY SUNS.
Moving on further with the research on Cycladic art and its most flourishing period, one comes to the conclusion that there is a timelessness to this culture, that because of its minimalism, is directly linked with our present times, thus becoming an integral part of the Greek cultural heritage and identity. A tranquil force of substantial forms that derives from the simplicity of perfectly balanced analogies.
Initially, a pattern was created, consisting of the most characteristic symbols of that period. The first attempt of human artistic expression which was that of depicting the female form by creating figurines was used as a trigger to create a coexisting blend of violin-shaped figurines and figurines of meta canonical form with deconstructed symbols of modern art.
An extra reference is made to the ocean floor and how the light reflects and delineates the colors and its existing life. The forms and shapes follow the natural construction of the body, highlighting it while the fabrics “come to life” with every move.
Transparent, flowy dresses resembling the sea flowers, spiral cutting pattern like colorful corals, two tone poplins woven with sea-creature inspired motifs as well as mermaid shaped perforated gowns, oversized metallic shaped that cause iridescent agitations and finally yarns with a sunfish effect decorated with metallic details that outline the female form, compose a new universe for the summer of 2020.
