Zeus+Δione interprets the geometrical structures and archetypical forms of the ancient Greek temples, creating new aesthetic lines for the SS2014 Collection, through a subtractive and deconstructive approach of the rich Greek heritage.
In pure harmony with the marble and stone temples of the island of Tinos, the lines, the symbols and the motifs emit the vibrations that spring from the human intensity that created them, as well as from the strong and bright Greek sunlight.
The authenticity and simplicity of the Doric order are transfused in the collection, through an ethereal, modern spirit of strong aesthetics and timeless elegance. The handmade details add extra value to a collection that converses fruitfully with a universal heritage, modern aesthetics and the unique Greek landscape.
With Tinos and the exquisite Aegean architecture as a background, Iliana Papageorgiou, the Greek model that excels in New York, with her stunning characteristics and ethereal moves, reveals the finesse and elegance of all time Greek beauty, just next to the marbles, the rough stones, the steeples and the sunny picturesque villages.
The collection consists of silk shirts with embroidered details, fluid trousers, ethereal caftans and dresses, swimsuits, handmade accessories, leather sandals and wedges, all in a palette of natural colors – ivory, plum, green and cherry. The rich textures in silk and pure cotton, as well as the handmade embroideries are in perfect balance with the clean cut subtractive motifs.
Zeus+Δione creations are made by premium Greek materials. Z+Δ collaborates with Greek craftsmen and small workshops that have deep knowledge and expertise, aiming to revive and promote the traditional techniques: the knitted dresses and skirts are hand–knitted by women in the Cyclades, the hand-made silver buckles are carved by Athenian silversmiths, the silk blouses are woven in the Northern Greece and the dresses inspired by traditional motifs, are knitted by craftsmen in Crete.
Zeus+Δione transforms the precious values of the ancient heritage and rich tradition into contemporary artistic creations and deconstructs the complex synthesis of the Greek temples, right to the essential basics.
The SS2014 Zeus+Δione collection is available in selected shops in Greece and abroad.
