A Black & White Winter at Makis Tselios

Athens, Greece - Fashion house Makis Tselios presented strong silhouettes for both its men and women collection during the 5th edition of the Hellenic Fashion Week.

Both black and white dominate the limited colour palette of both the men’s and women’s collections. There is also a hint of red sprinkled here and there in some of the silhouettes.

For men we see very masculine and appealing silhouettes in Prince of Wales tweeds and pure silks. The collection is the complete conservative wardrobe for men with ties, belts, shirts, trousers, suits and shoes.

Though the men’s collection is more complete, interesting work is also found in the women’s collection. The indispensable little black dress has a velvet ribbon to embellish it. Some of the short dresses are scandalously short. But believe me, there is a market for them. There are also nice scarves à la Grace Kelly for girls who admire her work with Alfred Hitchcock.
