Last month I spent ten glorious days in Crete. The largest and most southerly of the Greek islands, Crete is well known, largely for its reputation as a popular holiday destination, though having visited the island myself I feel it is also the most under-appreciated. Yes the climate is everything a sun-seeking tourist could hope for (38 degrees and getting hotter) and the beaches are stunning, the Greek salads are mouth watering and the locals are always smiling, but Crete has so much more to offer.
So much more in the form of silk, jersey, cotton, lace and crepe. Bright colors and bold prints served up in a delicious cocktail of delicate floaty fabrics. Strolling around Heraklion, in Crete, I saw such a vivacious mix of bright colors and patterns that I instantly fell in love with the Greek style.
Effortless, cool and sexy; the epitome of Greek fashion and style.
