Some places stay with you forever. As we capture SMR Days in its element – on the sun-drenched shorelines and open seas of Greece – our favourite fashion insiders share why it’s the one country they will never forget. From Athens to the Ionian islands, it’s an ode to brighter days ahead, and the places we’ll spend them – whether we have to wait a little longer to get away or not. When that day comes, Greece is top of our travel list. We promise you it will be worth the wait.
Thomas Persson has been one of fashion’s defining creative directors for close to two decades, founding the era-shaping Acne Paper in 2004 and going on to work with the industry’s biggest names, Giorgio Armani, Hermès and Louis Vuitton among them. Now, Thomas spends much of the year in his home in Athens, the energetic Greek capital, a country he has been visiting since the 1990s. Here, he tells us the secrets of his adopted home city.
The first trip was to Athens in the early 1990s. We were staying in a hotel on Omonia Square, now derelict, for one night en route to Mykonos when I was 21.
Hydra and Patmos are favourites because we have friends there and it’s social and culturally interesting. Now that we have a home in Athens, I’m curious about the islands, towns and places nearby which I hope to explore this spring and summer. If I was to choose one place, it would be Athens, for its people.
I would recommend Monsieur Didot and also Shila in Kolonaki. Also, the Moon & Stars in Psyri.
A Saturday afternoon about town when everything is bustling and exciting, having a good time with friends in one of the neighbourhoods Kolonaki, Kypseli, Exarchia or Psyri.
To spend it with locals and enjoy them and their hospitality.
Visit the Pedion Areos park, the fish market in Athinas. The view from Lycabettus Hill. I loved visiting the Yannis Pappas Studio which today belongs to the Benaki Museum.
Yes, and I am not going to tell you!
I always have a nice time at Barbounaki or Ama Lachei.
I would say at the HandleBar on Melanthiou.
January to June. September to December. Did I mention July and August?
Any relaxed beach with a tamarisk tree and singing tzítzikas.
A special thank you to Mike Vasilakis for modelling our launch collection in Greece.
