Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Sotiris Georgiou years ago when I was in Athens, he was with me when I was thrown out of the Acropolis for wearing 'traditional dress'  Never did understand what 'tradition' I was following. At any rate Sotiris' collection is inspired by the Sarakatsani people who present a particular morphological variety and dynamism in their traditional costumes. Through the colorful mosaic lens of Greek tradition, Sotiris chose this anient Greek nomad tribe and re-thinks them to adapt them for today. Recently, when I was in Rome for ZEGNA ART, Costas Voyatzis was wearing Sotiris's designs and it gave me the desire to look further.
