Greek womenswear designer Eleni Kyriacou launched her eponymous label in 2011 and has already developed a distinct and intriguing aesthetic.
Kyriacou, who was apprenticed to Alexander McQueen and Emilio de la Morena, has combined her experience with her love of sustainability and textile experimentation, resulting in a brand which produces feminine and wearable clothes with a hint of the unexpected.
Her current collection, Pele, the Volcano Goddess, is strongly influenced by images of lava, rich fire-like colours and layered metallics and embroidery, combined to emulate molten rock.
While these pieces are designed for evening wear, Kyriacou’s diffusion line from the same collection is a pared down, casual yet beautiful collection, visually more simple yet crafted with the same intensity of detail.
