Director Yorgos Lanthimos on the red (or magenta?) carpet accompanied by Venice Film Festival Best Actress winner (for Attenberg) and also his sweetheart Ariane Labed and Dogtooth actress Aggeliki Papoulia.

Dogtooth is a Greek movie that was nominated for Best Foreign Film but lost to In A Better World.

According to trivia info I gathered from around the web and Greek TV (to be more precise DoraBora's tweet and film critic Iasonas Triantafyllidis) Lanthimos wore an Ermenegildo Zegna tux, whereas Aggeliki Papoulia chose this Gucci gown.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any info on Ariane's stunning gown. Whoever knows something more, please share!

Thanks to fashion insider Discolata who kindly left a comment below, we now know that Ariane's gown was Halston AW 2010-11.

adidas Originals partaaaaay!

Yesterday we found ourselves in Yoga Bala in downtown Athens for the launch of the adidas Originals new spring collection, which for the first time includes a denim line!

Thalia was kind enough to help me demonstrate more of the new collection for you.

Great thing that all the samples were there for us to see, feel and try on if we wished.

I tried on that green t-shirt that matched my shoes.

And for those who asked, they're ADIDAS ADI HOOP in RAVGRN/LAVA/FREPIN with product code 651787. I got them in a sports shop in Amsterdam during that trip but you can always try online.

Moving on...
Mary Kitsopanou and Yorgos Kelefis of OZON happily browsing through the rails of t-shirts.

Thalia again.
Seriously girl, they should be paying you in clothes.

Me and fellow architect Nafsika. Ok, so she's basically more known from her career as a VJ for Greek MTV, but you know, I always think of her as a colleague. Funny thing, I also always bump into her in such parties.

Printed with a black and white urban skyline, this must be the ultimate tote for a fashion architect. Let's hope I find it in stores...

Of course the stars of the night were the jeans and their cute details like those turquoise insides.

Xenofon Eleftheriadis is the person you can bug the hell out to get more info on Adidas Originals and the new denim line.

Seriously cool unknown girl sporting an amazing animal-print adidas jacket.

More stylish people: Alex, Elena and Thalia.

Michalis of Stavento who borrowed the camera from the actual camera-man. Multi-talented guy.

Elena and Aris laughing at each other.

Bad Spencer of Yes It Does, Sure It Does lost in music.

Rare occasion where Dimitris Floros is not in a suit.

The other cool guy of Yes It Does, Sure It Does Loukas Mexis with our little girl.

Ok, that was too cute not to post as well.

The really good goody bags containing a set of nice headphones, a notebook and a pen along with the always useful press kit. This one has some really cool pics in it, which should and will probably be posted soon.

As always, you can see way more pics and posts by visiting all the other girls that attended like Life Full of Fashion, Life in Athens, Fashion Algorithms, Not For Sale and Ordinary Style Pulse.

What a great night, kudos adidas and Civitas!

DElight in room #601

DElight SS2011, as you've already seen it here.

Daphne Iliaki and her black lace rabbit ears.

The yummy drinks.

Evi Retziou deep in conversation and even deeper in that pink bubblegum chair.

As you can imagine, we stayed quite a while in that room, last Saturday at The Room Service.

Future Sentiments

Future Sentiments is a fresh concept wear label founded by two architects between Amsterdam and Vilnius, Lithuania in late 2010.

Citing cosmic miracles and disco as some of their inspiration, I was mostly striken by the fresh point of view on t-shirt design, using clean, loose shapes, shiny inserts and the odd conceptual twist.

And by that I mean, wearing a t-shirt printed with something you use to "dress" your home?
That's architectural fashion with a twist.

Denis and Victoria - the couple behind the label - were kind enough to send me a lovely email introducing themselves and their work and arranged for me to have one of their designs, all the way from Lithuania, to post here on the blog.

How could I say no to fashion by architects?
As you may have guessed, I was quite into the whole concept of the carpet print as well as the top quality of the fabric and the sewing.

I was also very impressed by the packaging and labels.

I mean, this one above is the - quite hidden - washing instruction label, and they have thought of putting a nice message for you to discover there as well.

Loved it, great job guys!

I couldn't post every single picture from their collection here, so if you're hungry for more, you can always visit the salmon-pink official site for more info, find their limited edition preview collection available for purchase online at their e-shop (only there) and show them how much you like them too on facebook.
