Having a great honour to attend to the magical presentation of “Urban Poetry” by the legendary Greek fashion designer Loukia at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, I had the feeling that I was introduced to the lyrical spectacle of pure essence of grace and elegance by means of sophisticated simplicity. It’s a very precious and rare concept in the Greek fashion stage opposing to the typical excess of “fashion” form without the deeper meaning. The collection “Urban Poetry” Fall/Winter 2012 became the fusion of the romantic heritage, vintage panache and metropolitan mistress creating the impressive finesse of the collection forming the notion of urban poetry – the melody hidden in the heart of contemporary fashion and art of haute couture.
