Top Designer Spotlight : Ergon Mykonos
Todays top designer spotlight is Ergon Mykonos. Ergon Mykonos is a Mykonos, Greece brand that has made an art from mixing traditional methods and materials with modern shapes and design. Marietta, creative director and founder of the brand, had a strong architectural influence throughout her childhood which has heavily shaped her designs. (ErgonMykonos.com)
The Ergon Mykonos current collection focuses on the Golden Period of ancient Athens around 5th century BC. The designs and patterns pull heavily from the beautiful pottery of the time. Pieces depict stories from the rich culture of ancient Greece.
By far, my favorite thing about their clothing is innovative cuts and shapes of their clothing. The perfect example is the stunning two piece set shown below. I love the unique cut of the top and the wide cut of the shorts. It’s a look that is super modern and chic, but still powerful and totally wearable.
What is the Loom Method?
This top designer spotlight is taking a traditional approach to how they create their beautiful pieces. The process of creating cloth was originally started by the ancient Egyptians and later by the Greeks. To create fabric on a loom, threads are woven in a wooden base that keeps tension in the strings. The fabric is made by weaving threads through the base threads to build up each layers.
The process is very time consuming and was originally all done by hand. Ergon Mykonos uses a mechanical loom to create their beautiful pieces. This gives the clothes the same traditional fabric, but makes the process way less time consuming. Adding an old tradition into their modern designs.
