Fashion Inspired by Ancient Greek Forms at the Cycladic Shop

The shop at the Museum of Cycladic Art presents a fashion project with some of Greece's top designers.


This month, those visiting Athens don’t need to choose between shopping and visiting the museums, as they can do both in a single outing.

On May 4th, the Cycladic Shop, at the Museum of Cycladic Art, presented a selection of items from Greek designers that will easily fit into any fashionista’s wardrobe.

It has been proven time and time again, that ancient Greece is a bottomless well of inspiration for fashion designers. The items of this selection are described as being inspired by the Aegean light, Cycladic figurines, and the forms and aesthetics of ancient Greek art. They are concurrently pieces of high fashion and fantastic alternatives to traditional souvenirs.

Some absolute treasures to look out for are jewelry by Maria Mastori, all-day sandals from Di Gaia, statement hats from Blanc, and pieces from timeless yet contemporary Ergon Mykonos.

Put together in collaboration with style & fashion expert Michalis Pandos, the collection also includes beautiful clothing and accessories from Angelos Bratis, Deux Hommes, Digitaria, Yiorgos Eleftheriades, Pantelis Vitaliotis/Magneto, Apostolos Mitropoulos, Rien, Danai Sakellari, Uglybell, and Zeus + Dione.

Available in limited numbers and for one month only, this is a one-stop-shop you don’t want to miss.
