Erotokritos is a
Parisian based fashion designer that has brought
funk back to frocks. The designer’s Greek-Cypriot
background has deeply influenced the collection.
French lace and silk are used throughout the line
to create visual interest. A mix of asymmetrical
necklines, distinct stitchery, and raised hemlines
define sophisticated looks while still maintaining
a youthful vibe.
presentation took place in one of the coveted rooms
at the Bryant Park Hotel, across the street from
the Tents. This hip background created quite a chic
setting that mirrored that freshness in the garments.
The modular style was brimming with incandescent
draping and pleats. And the handbags were forceful,
strong, and still delicate. The leather was deliciously
luxurious with haute colors and iconic shapes. Overall,
Erotokritos created a solid collection that was
whimsical, yet grounded in reality.
