Makis Tselios Raises Temperature!

Inspired by key lingerie items such as the baby-doll or the negligee, Makis Tselios presented at Athens Fashion Week a Spring/Summer 2011 Collection which translates every girl’s wish to look sexy in a balanced way, to be confident and feel comfortable with her look. All the pieces were wearable and impressive at the same time, helping me forget some of the bitter comments I made on one of his previous collections. Tselios is not over-trying this season since he realized that he doesn’t need to exaggerate in terms of style. His genuine inclination towards a youthful, elegant, hot and cool reproduction of femininity makes him a charming favorite of women who never grow old. Animal prints, nude shades, light fabrics, frills, rich drapery, transparencies and micro-minis prove their aphrodisiac qualities in this collection. Fluid forms in desirable neutrals and juicy bold colors are perfect for a weekend in Cyclades, especially Mykonos. Peach and coral, aqua marine reflections, black and white were irresistible. I loved everything which was lingerie-inspired such as the sexy loose tops, the tiny balloon skirts and shorts, the feathery dresses, the breathtaking décolleté in many pieces and the see-through shirts. Despite some distant relation to boudoir aesthetics, the images created were not heavy, cheap or annoyingly provocative. They were just stunning, ready to fit into a summer vacations setting, with warm weather and sparkling sea waters. Boys on catwalk were equally well-dressed by the designer. The finale’s highlight was the balloon denim shorts combined with a tied-on-front, abs-revealing white shirt that made girls true temptations for all men.
