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. ♡

Costa Navarino getaway

A weekend of sweet nothingness, buffet dinners and riding golf carts courtesy of L’Oreal Paris and Marie Claire blog awards.
Pure bliss.
For those of you wanting a mediterranean luxury escape , i would suggest Romanos over the Westin, unless you’re bringing young children with you, in which case the Westin, is the ultimate family experience.

Ios pirates weekend

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Ios island has been my favourite for ever, so when Bianca and Freddie suggested we go for a long weekend in the beginning of July, i packed my new Ben Trill Bikini a couple of tees and some hotpants and i was ready for some long awaited nothingness under the sun.
Long live the Greek summer kids, may this one be the best one yet.
