Design, Asymmetry And Clutches Made Of Cork

Symmetry is overrated, and so asymmetry is where it’s at. In life AND in fashion. Think about it. Some of the most interesting things happen to us when we veer off the path a bit, no? Thessaloniki-born designer Georgina Skalidi takes that concept and applies it to her designs, creating bags that are sometimes triangular in shape, but relevant in their refusal to look like your run-of-the-mill clutch.

Georgina Skalidi left Thessaloniki to study in Paris, and now she’s blowin’ up. She’s got two stores: one in Athens, the other in Crete. In 2012 she collaborated with Eastpack for the Artist Studio Collection; she’s part of Boticca’s USA designers community; and she was featured as a new talent by Vogue Italy. Blowin’ up.

Here are some pictures from her 2011 Lookbook.

And these are some of my favorite pieces from both her current collection and stuff from past seasons. I think my favorite bag is the one made of cork. Think about how light that is! Gorge.

It’s real nice to see more and more talent coming out of Thessaloniki. Inspiring places breed inspiring minds…and vice versa…that’s how it goes…

Until soon,

We are both from the USA, and now we live in Thessaloniki, Greece. We are friends with similar interests and hobbies - namely photography and all things aesthetically pleasing and lots of laughter. We don't claim to know about a lot of things, but hope that you find inspiration in some of the things that inspire us. Thanks.
