We spent the last weekend of summer with Iliana Papageorgiou, one of the most promising Ford Models, based in New York City. Sporting the swim- and beachwear (plus all accessories) we loved and recommend as must-have classics. And, of course, we did it our way – in our home town, Athens, only a few miles away from the city centre. 

This is your heaven. Private, peaceful. No one dares to disturb. The last weekend of summer is sacred and glorious. And must be spent wisely. It’s not that you bid summer adieu, you never really could. It’s just that the perfect closure can make even an imperfect summer roll in your memory for many years to come. And memories, oh, this is the material we are made of, in the end.

Enough said. Time for one last deep dive.
