Here's the latest addition to my Sneakers collection: Reebok Easy Tones. The first time I came across those cuties was in 2010 when I saw those pictures of Helena Christensen wearing them. And here I am, a year and 3 days later to share my own Easy Tone experience. To make a long story short they rock! Basically what's different than any other pair of sneakers is that the Easy Tones have two balance pods that make you put a slight effort to walk and help tone key leg muscles as a result. And believe me it really works. I wore them every single day to my regular 45 min. walk and I actually saw the difference right away. I totally recommend the Easy Tones if you are searching for your next pair of sneakers or if you want to exercise without putting much effort.

Well, hello there! I know I've been neglecting the blog the last couple of weeks but once again my work schedule is busier than I can actually keep up with. Anyway I promise I'll do my best!
Here's a closer look at some of the new (or upcoming) H&M collections. I was lucky enough to be present at the brand's SS collections preview and I couldn't not share those pics with you.
Fashion Against AIDS: A unisex, androgynous collection that aims to spread the message that AIDS affects both sexes. Powerful and for a good cause but most of all wearable, since it's clothes we are talking about.
Conscious Collection. Well I'm all for a greener collection and it seems like H&M is taking it seriously. Catarina Midby, H&M's Trend Coordinator and Spokesperson granted me an interview back in March so you can read all about it here.
H&M Wateraid Collection, supporting -well obviously- Wateraid. (I so fell in love with the full skirts and the dresses, I'll definately write more about it when the time comes)
Now if that's not summery then what is? A cute detail from the showroom featuring SS accessories.

I have no words to describe how much I admire Loukia and seriously the world "perfection" is never, never enough to describe her designs. I can honestly say we were all speechless after the end of the show.
So much inspiration! A great show and wonderful, out-of-this-world clothes. I could spend hours taking closer looks at the clothes. Just imagine all the work that needs to be done to create those layers, the delicate lace and the chic embellishments.
I know the post is quite picture heavy but I couldn't leave anything out! Plus excuse the dusty floor at some of the pictures. They were shot at the rehearsal before the cleaning ladies worked their magic!
Congrats to Loukia and her team!
Styling: Nicolas Georgiou
Creative Team: Stella Tsimpida & Theodora Christopoulou
Modelist: Antigoni Drakou & Eirini Servou
Accessories: Konstantinos Kiriakou
Hair: Dimitris Palaiologos, L' Oréal Professionnel
It's so funny how people who have accomplished a lot in their careers are most of the times very friendly and down to earth while others who haven't really done much are snobbish, rude and feel like they 're kings of the world. Theodoros Terzopoulos, who directed the Loukia show, was the ultimate example for the first category.
With actress Sophia Hill who was the show's guest star.
As I 've said quite some times, what's more interesting than each fashion show is what's going on backstage. So, when Lancôme invited me to cover the backstage at Loukia's show, I couldn't possibly say no. Iliada has already written everything about the hair and make-up of the show here (she's the expert after all) so I will just share some more images with you.

I know it took me very long but I finally found some time to do those Fashion Week posts.I'm going to start with DElight since they rocked (ok, that's no surprise I know!). I find it very impressive that every time the girls take their work a step further and evolve without losing anything from the signature character of their clothes. Needless to say they -once again- had the best looking models and the styling was impeccable.
This year I was lucky enough to also be present at their rehearsal and you know, the good thing about rehearsals is that you can see everything up close and well, twice! Like this dress for example. After seeing it so many times walking down the runway I'm sure that I want it. Desperately may I add!
Last but not least I shouldn't forget to mention that the shoes are Fullah Sugah. The brand recently re-caught my eye since their new designs are awesome!

Seriously now, words are not enough to describe this awesomness. And yes, it's the Atelier Loukia show that I'm talking about. Here's a teaser while I'm working on the actual post. This woman is true inspiration!
Ok ok, I can't close this post without congratulating the organizing team. They did an amazing job! Everything was perfect!

Athens Fashion week closed with a bang! And by "bang" I mean all my favorite greek designers (DElight, Kavathas, Georgiou) in one day. Pure Bliss! By the end of the week I will have (hopefully) done the actual posts on the shows so please bare with me. In the meantime here are some outfit pics shot by Nelly.
