On a balmy Tuesday evening I took my camera on hand and walked down the street from my office to meet a girl that is determined to change the way we think about accessories. There is always this bright, wide window from where you can spy her until the moment when she’ll notice you, smile you and welcome you inside.
The showroom is filled with her summer collection ‘Antithesis’ and Pavlina is more than than excited to share her inspiration behind the final product.
Nat King Cole’s ‘Nature Boy’ lyrics were the beginning of the journey. A journey through feelings, inner search and magic.
Strong bright colors such as coral red, blue, baby blue and yellow, nude paired with black and the earthy brown, work together to emphasize boldness and true romanticism.
She seems also very happy to announce a capsule collection, Ippolito by the sea, including a summer backpack and a large beach bag. Both are made out of soft sackcloth and printed waterproof interior with leather details,designed to carry all our summer memories.
Geppetto, her loyal and famous pal, being constantly spotted with her red lipstick, is by mistake a marketing trick! Α happy tail that says hello to everyone who enters Ippolito’s showroom and shows his affection with every chance ! You can find him staring at you through the window, greeting the pedestrians or playing with a piece of leather from a past collection.
Being a guest at Ippolito means being part of an inspiring environment, a “crammed moodboard”, a spot for coming-by friends, a place to share thoughts and experiences. I always enjoy our witty, funny, and serious chit-chats accompanied by a glass of wine,many raisins and handfuls of cashews.
Unlike today’s fast fashion Pavlina is classic accessory just like the ones she designs. A girl who will always “thank you”, a kind and generous soul, a designer with excellent taste and an eye for quality,always willing to reveal her secret mantra, a professional story, and eat with you many,many many cashews!
