Inspiration: Greek designers

I caught myself reminiscing about my trips to Christos Costarellos's atelier in Athens last year, for my wedding dress fittings;

then I came to think about some of the new Greek designers that caught my eye during my trips.

Zeus+Dione is all about using traditional weaving methods to create light fabrics and clothes with a nod to ancient Greek mythology. My absolute favourite is the straw hat; it takes me back to holidaying in Spetses last year. 

Christina Fragista Sandals:
Karlonisi White & Gold Leather Sandal // Athos Brown Gladiator Sandal // Stavronisi with Turquoise & Silky Beige Italian Leather and Gold-plated Heart with Semi-precious stone // Revithoussa Gladiator Sandal Beige
Christina Fragista's sandals are hand cut and hand stitched,  also using traditional techniques but with the added sparkle of semi-precious stones. Great from morning to night! It's hard to pick a favourite but for now it will have to be the White & Gold Leather sandals; I can picture wearing them with a long white skirt, simple tank top  and a chunky gold necklace.

And last but not least, I have come to respect Christos Costarellos's work: elegant, flowing designs and a very helpful, hands on team to look after you.
