Our 2nd collection presented at the Athens X-Clusive Designers Week for Spring / Summer 2013, was named “Infinite Love” and it was a youthful and happy project and we truly enjoyed creating it.
Our main objective was to create a collection that would be fully commercial and complete, including from daily total looks , cocktail dresses , ” statement” t-shirts and swimwear.
For the “Infinite Love” collection for Spring / Summer 2013, the major source of our inspiration was the music & style icon Lana Del Rey and the pleasant nostalgia and carefree mood of our teenage summers.
It was a pleasantly creative collection that we love and enjoyed very much while creating it.
Our main color palette consisted of pastel shades combined with deep and intense blue with a touch floral
Moreover, we wanted to give a girlie and humorous touch in terms of the collection’s styling this is why we completed the models’ looks with some retro round sunglasses and floral headpieces.
We aimed in presenting a “complete” collection that would create pleasant feelings of joy and carefree mood to our audience and clients.
And i think that we made it.
In general terms, we do follow new trends and trend forecasts, however we want to maintain our own style in each of our collections.
Statement t-shirts for example. YES.
We do love t-shirts.

When it comes to the fabrics, we focused on high quality materials with emphasis on silk , muslin and the soie sauvage.
We love to discover and use fine quality fabrics in order to embrace and flatter the female body, while creating a sense of comfort and femininity.
Some of our favorite fabrics which are always present from our collection is the silk, the muslin, the viscose and the silky transparency.
