COLLECTION S/S 18
The ancient Greek aesthetics cover centuries & are defined by philosophical arguments. This connection of philosophy, science, architecture and beauty has always been the core of our brand. The current collection of ergon mykonos is inspired and has “blossomed” through the spirit of the Hellenic period. The theory of beauty back then attributed Beauty to PROPORTION, FUNCTIONALITY and FORM. All three attributes are present in the new designs: Geometry, Artistic Harmony, Natural elements in forms and shapes that resemble the Greek life and environment, motifs with hellenistic statues combined with colours & textures of today’s Greece. The design of the clothes has remained faithful to Functionality and love for the woman of today. Free sizes, loose fabrics, an air of freedom in every movement. The manufacture of the textiles is made through the ancient method of the loom, but this time the handmade process has been replaced by the Hellenistic mechanical loom. Every motif has a repetition of 25cm, a technique followed in Greece during that period and the fabric is 100% pure cotton. A magical process for the creators that leads to an authentically Hellenic collection with designs, textiles and fabrics that glorify the woman of today.
