Celia Kritharioti. Spring Summer 2023 Couture Collection during Haute Couture Week.
In the heart of Paris, at the prestigious Pavillon Cambon Capucines, designer Celia Kritharioti presented her Couture SS23 Collection, a true ode to the unexpected journeys of life.
As the designer explains, "Every journey begins from within. It is not about a destination, it is always the starting point that matters, the connection between cultures, mythologies, and all forms of creation, filtered through my personal vision and interpreted through refined art."
And refined art is exactly what her collection exudes. From the masterfully hand-embroidered cocktail dresses, gowns, jackets, mini dresses and kaftans that echo the tradition of the oldest Couture House in Greece, to the stunning color palette that ranges from vibrant oranges, greens, and yellows to earthy browns, corals, mints, scarlets, and dark reds. The hand-painted taffetas and animal prints truly celebrate the essence of couture.
But it's not just the clothes that make this collection special. The handcrafted jewelry that completes each look is an ode to elegance and the beauty of the female form. The designer explains, "there is an oneness in the universe, we cannot live without respect, without empathy and humility."
And that is the underlying message of her collection, escapism is a state of mind and together, we can imagine a better future. This is the most profound manifestation of humanity, a declaration of love.
