The very first minutes of the day foreshadowed the erratic course of what was to come. The weather turned from sunny into cloudy and vice versa; my down-filled coat and my old but never forgotten metallic Gucci penny loafers posed in front of a Grecian background; and on top of everything else, my car from being in full motion driving me all over Athens ran out of gas in the middle of one of the busiest roads. Talk about shakiness…
There have been too many ups and downs lately and just when I think I have my ways to handle anything that life throws at me, it is then that life gets seriously wobbly. Being prepared for the unexpected isn’t always easy. Trust me, I know that. But a confident look and a spontaneous reaction is a smart way to sustain your upbeat attitude and enjoy the fun of what’s around the corner!
Sunny weekends at the end of autumn are almost the ideal way to recharge my batteries and start the upcoming busy week. And I’m saying almost, ’cause a loose urban attitude is the necessary addition to keep my playful temperament alive. So, a mix of boho elegance, rock accents and army-green shades are the perfect match for an edgy and, at the same time, relaxed beginning.
The clouds are suddenly back and the weather got darker; surely, my style couldn’t be left unaffected. Inspired by Hedi Slimane’s rock eye and the dark spirit of the early ’90s, my black & white stripes are here to take me to MR. PORTER Global Style Campaign and spread around my street grunge mood!
A Fair Isle knit cardigan is definitely an outstanding way to add an uncouth but jaunty hint to a casual outfit, so that the first cool days are conquered! And for a cheerful boost, a handmade necklace – a present from my friend & jewelry designer Virginia Tzioti – is all I need!
Finally, the H&M collaboration with Parisian designer Isabel Marant is about to manifest itself. It will be available on November 14th, 2013 in around 250 stores worldwide as well as online. This collection synthesizes the following distinctive philosophy: real clothes capturing the moment. And not only does it feature clothing and accessories for women and teenagers, but, for the first time, Isabel Marant creates a collection for men (yeeeeesssssss!!!!). Soon, very soon, my shopping dash will be on!
