The PRISM is the key that opens the door to the collection of the Greek designer Laskaris. A journey to a surreal world, where the dream is omnipresent, the act of creation is spontaneous and paradoxically anchored in the present. His couture collection for autumn-winter 2017-2018 is an experience: you are welcome to follow the light, its sublime anamorphoses, its multiple facets, which are, according to the designer, the meaning of life.
The main colors are black, red, white and gold. The materials are noble and powerful: linen, cashmere, and leather. The enamels in the collection are hand-molded in his atelier in Athens. The purity of the lines symbolizes the different roads that each of us must choose throughout our lives, the trajectories that are personal to us. It is the past that gives us the means to move towards the future. The collection is strongly influenced by the Greek culture.
From the soul of Chirico and Engonópoulos, Laskaris extracted hope and vital force.
“My work is only a reflection of what I think, I feel, I try and I realize… Knowing how to see a situation with the eyes of the spirit is the best way to see it with the greatest objectivity possible. To see means to conceive, and that is the true nature of thought.”
And, above all, PRISM is a celebration of light, the one that composes a painting, in opposition to obscurantism, that dwells a soul…
