Paris: The collection shown by Cypriot born, Paris-based designer Erotokritos was a mix of classics, new ideas, and sweet interpretations of trend-right details seen on many runways this season. Uncomplicated and easy to wear, silhouettes included basics like shift dresses, pencil skirts and short boxy jackets; prints ranged from polka dots to a pretty, stained glass floral design. The designer presented more innovative ideas through knitwear. A color-blocked sweater had a fuchsia band around the waist that suggested a cummerbund, but had an easy, casual feel. Intarsia knits looked new when paired together, creating a head-to-toe patterned look. Lurex stripes gave a pair of pleated trousers a youthful edge, and a soft ruff-like collar added poetic whimsy to a sheer top. The designer also added interest to patchwork motifs by embellishing some patches with sequins, creating a contrast of texture as well as color. The clothes were just loud enough to grab attention, and there were just enough new ideas to keep it interesting. While Erotokritos played it safe for the most part, his classic shapes and charming details capture the slightly offbeat sweetness that is resonating with Juniors right now.
