(Like a pair of socks.)
“Μα πότε άνθισες;”
It’s sweeter, ’cause it’s the real thing!
*cotton candy in Greek is called “μαλλί της γριάς” (old lady’s hair)…and now you get it!
Ela na pame sto nisi
” ‘Ελα να πάμε στο νησί, (η μάνα σου) εγώ κι εσύ. ”
* Verse from the well known Greek folk song “to louloudáki tou bachtsé” (for sure you know that song)
Upcycling is not a new thing… Don’t act like you haven’t done it yourself!
NEW AGE MONUMENT
Monumental. Milestone of modern furniture design. Practical. Comfy. Multipurpose. Every Greek kid’s summer essential…all these and even more, is the classic plastic chair and that’s NOT debatable
ODE x ΜΠΛΑΝΚ Amphitrite
This pair of socks has been designed in collaboration with the awesome BLANK Multiactive Studio-Gallery from the beautiful island of Syros
Inspired by the Greek “τενεκές” (a metallic container to store feta cheese or olive oil)
The gold and green one is for olive oil and that makes sense ’cause olive oil is usually referred as liquid gold. So that’s why Παπάρα* is a form of art
*taking a bite size piece of bread and dipping it in the bottom of a Greek salad’s bowl. That’s where all the love juices are.
