Grecian Chic

Silk scarves, pocket squares & ribbons.

 

 

Elena Zournatzi, born in 1981 in Athens, is the creator of the ultra chic, silk scarves Grecian Chic. With studies in Graphic Design at Kingston University in London, and a Postgraduate 2D Cartoon Animation course at Central Saint Martins in London, she decided in 2011 to combine the elegance of the silk with the strong culture of her  birth country Greece.

 

 

Two series of silk foulards, pocket squares and ribbons; the “classical” and the “grecian life”. The “classical” has as its source the history, the traditions and even the mythology. Inspiration derives from the details of ancient marble sculptures to the Minoan pottery, from traditional folklore embroidery to the gold jewellery of Alexander the Great. The “grecian life” represent the present daily life, in a comical way. The chic lady travels among the islands and the villages in the mountains, to pose next to cult male figures!

 

 

All of the motifs, to the finest detail, are hand pencil drawings on paper, before colour brings them to life! The final drawings are digitally printed on 100% pure silk in England and each scarf has a fine seam finish. Elena Zournatzi has also been designing motives for Museums in Greece and Cyprus and collaborates with french Haute Couture Fashion House. Her motives are printed in porcelain, textiles and various paper products.
