European design is given a modern uplift by Italian-Greek designer Dimitrios Panagiotopoulos, better and more simply known as Dimitri. With his brand born in 2007, Dimitri lists Jil Sander, Hugo Boss and Vivienne Westwood as former employers, and if that doesn't speak volumes about his exceptional fashion background, then his designs most certainly will.
Dimitri outwardly dresses women with the same confidence and panache that they exude on the inside. For Spring/Summer 2014, power is handed over to the 21st century girl with self-assurance, in an array of brights - cobalt blue, aquamarine, citrine, raspberry, lemon and lime. Toned down by basic beiges and black, this compelling collection can be taken from the office to an evening out with a few key pieces.
Tailored blazers with cigarette trousers make those work days a little more elegant, and weekend wear is covered by chic cotton tops, peplum skater skirts, piquet shorts & digi-print leggings. Dimitri includes a few chunky knit sweaters to make the transition into Spring stylishly easy. Fit and flare chiffon cocktail dresses guarantee you a second look, accessorized with leather corset belts, two-tone totes, clutches & crochet necklaces also by the label.
This is a look at Dimitri's enthusiastically chic Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
The raspberry silk midi strapless dress in Set 8 is at the very top of my wishlist. Prices border on the steep side but check out the sale page on their website for some good investment buys.
