a weekend away

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Bianca invited us to her cycladic-themed summer house for two days of non stop eating and sofa surfing and boy oh boy, it was exactly what i needed.
I love an empty summer house in the winter.. pine leaves in the pool and discarded single flip flops, melancholia and doom, almost like the last days of summer before a new school year, or the last party scene on Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.

the ΣΟΜΦ SS15 show

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Hey guys im back!

Sorry for the lack of posts, but i was crazy busy with PFW sales of my SS15 collection, followed by the AXDW show in Athens on the 25th of October 2014, that blogging was like that old relative that you wanna call and think of ALL THE TIME, but for reasons unnamed (they are boring and stink slightly, procrastination, letssss-squeeze-spots day, cat needs petting, so many more jobs to finish before now, showering etc etc) you never do it.

The collection and show inspiration was my summer in Athens really and it was styled by my gal Bianca Bogdanou and sponsored by the wonderful people at Vichy and their Aqualia Thermal, which means that i get to have a good amount of kick-ass hydrating serum to last me through this coming Winter (insert GOT joke) and that a few of you lucky ladies, will get to have your own allowance of Vichy AND a limited edition SOMF X Vichy tee for free.

Postcards from London fashion week

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

You might be all expecting an ocean of glitz and glamour, but the truth is besides having a look at the new Matar SS15 (a new obsession- photos coming soon!) and attending the once-again-stunning Christopher Kane show (i want it all and i want it now!!) , what i mostly did, was laze about with my London family of besties.I miss them all so deeply that those precious moments, were too hard to waste.

Next stop Paris!

Summer in Athens

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Staying in Athens this Summer, was so much more fun than anticipated and i cant wait to share the fruits of some hard labour!
A little break away, from designing the new SOMF SS15 collection, found me in an old Athenian gem, Grande Bretagne, one of Athens’ most treasured lux-on-tap chichi hotels. I absolutely loved its chilled ellegance, perfect service and delicious cousine.
A week with Christopher Kane, fashion’s hottest ticket and my favourite Summer sidekick and companion, drinking cocktails by the pool with mates and strolling around town, was nothing sort of a perfect holiday. ♡
