Embracing Greek heritage: Zeus+Δione/1st outfit





As you all know this is not a personal outfit blog!!! This is more like a fashion moodboard, sharing with you everything that attracts me and inspires me.
My country, Greece, has always been a constant inspiration for me and the place where my heart sings in appreciation for every breath; I feel tolerant, joyful, and loving.
This post in addition to the other two following are dedicated to the beautiful colors and places of this country and to a Greek brand, Zeus+Δione, that pays homage to the handcrafting heritage and rich style legacy of its homeland. Named after the parent of the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite, Zeus+Δione is a company based on a myth and creating one at the same time. Selective and handpicked manufacturers and small workshops from all over Greece are sourced to offer us a collection of hand made, high quality products based on refined craftsmanship with modern design elements.
In my first post I chose to wear my favorite beige 'Sophia' silk blouse (made of Soufli silk) with rope details, 'Alcestis' pants made of silk and lined with silk georgette, my summer essential handmade 'Hephaestus' leather flat sandals, and the 'Pandora' hand knitted crochet bag. 
Those beautiful handmade contemporary jewellery I am wearing are by a very talented Greek designer and friend of mine, Rallou Katsari. The gold plated pendant from the 'drop by drop' collection is the piece I cannot live without and upgrades my outfits with its glow and its beauty!!!
The soft feel of the silk against my skin, the sun, the endless blue and the company of my beloved ones on that day made me recall what Odysseas Elytis once wrote: "Bliss is not subtractable".
