Greek-Cypriot, Paris-based designer Eritokritos launched his eponymous collection for women in 1994, which quickly established itself in the hearts of women with a penchant for quirky design and colourful prints. About 5 years ago, he translated this design ethos to menswear and opened a store in the Marais in Paris to showcase this work.
Next time you’re in Paris, its definitely worth a look along with the other chic boutiques around rue Vieille du Temple. The knitwear in this season is really gorgeous and there’s some lovely short jackets perfect for autumn weather. Like the womenswear, it’s the sort of collection where the more you look at it, the better it becomes. It has a folky feel to it, and the colours are perfect – there’s something very Parisian about putting candy pink, sky blue and chocolate brown together and making it work, but they pull it off. Its bound to be in UK stores soon so watch out for it.
