Lusting over Lichtenstein

Looking to the past for future inspirations is key for a creative mind. The eyes, mind and soul are constantly wandering and lusting for new creative direction and recently I have found myself in search for a boost of creative energy. My recent rediscovering of Roy Lichtenstein has me falling in love all over again with his use of color.  I happened to stumble upon Liechtenstein’s art over the weekend and haven’t been able to get his retro take on pop art out of my head. With this hot summer heat radiating down upon the city I have been gravitating more and more towards bold colors, especially summer yellow. My recent Lichtenstein obsession has me spinning with ideas for future collections as well as how I can incorporate this new creative boost into my current wardrobe.

Many of the interns are art majors or minors so we’ve been having an ongoing discussion all day debating our favorite Lichtenstein pieces as well as how this pop art genre has inspired so many amazing looks throughout history. From 60’s flower child, to color blocking, and today’s ever popular youthful festival wear, it seems that pop art inspired style is constantly being recycled throughout the generations. I love looking back at how trends from the past have influenced popular looks today! It’s always so fun to take a trip down memory lane isn’t it?

To make this look work for you throw on your favorite summer colors in the forms of geometric shapes or free spirited patterns. Layer your look with Susanna Galanis chains featuring charms and gems finally, finish your look off with a gorgeous gold cuff from my collection. There are so many ways to make this look work for you so have fun with it my fashionistas/os!

Stay inspired my darlings!

 

xoxo,

Susanna

Fresh to Daphne

With today’s weather being a fabulous mid 70 degrees everyone in the showroom has been craving a fresh salad from the nearby cafe. As lunch time came and passed it seemed intern after intern came back with a bowl of greens sprinkled with added pops of color in the form of fruit and veggies. Why not incorporate this healthy lifestyle choice into your everyday summer wardrobe? These gorgeous greens got us thinking how my newest Daphne collection adds pops of color to the most basic and fresh summer style. Why not change it up and wear a fantastic outfit of white and throw on a gorgeous green necklace to add some flavor to the mix? Stand out in the most simple of ways this week with a fresh twist on a summer trend. Continue below to see how were thinking fresh today in the showroom as well as one of my favorite salad recipe for a lovely summertime meal.

SUSANNA GALANIS Modern-day Goddess – profile

 

 

COLLECTION Susanna Galanis – Inspired by History 

This post is about the woman who inspires and honors me by possessing and wearing the jewelry I create for Her: my beautiful customer, muse and modern-day goddess.  This is about the woman who allows me to have the biggest pleasure – creating wearable art in jewelry inspired by Ancient Greece. She posses my jewelry, but what else does she possess?

The Susanna Galanis “customer” is like a rare diamond: Brilliant and dazzling, precious, scarce, fine and glamorous,  multi-faceted and eternal.

She is beautiful, feminine and charming, sophisticated, intelligent  and deep.

She knows who she is, has a defined purpose and a clear vision.

She is strong and confident, yet, modest and demure.

She is artistic, cultural and worldly.

She was either tought to have high self-esteem, or, she is intelligent enough to have figure this out herself.

She is a “winner.”

She makes an “entrance” and she gets noticed – with no effort! She  lights up the room.

She is fulfilled and generous, genuine, spiritual and happy, and, she is happy to give back.

She is adored and treasured by both men and women being blessed with a magnetic personality and tons of charisma.

She is a “mature 20-something or a “young” 60, 70, or 80-something. She is timeless – like a Greek Goddess! She is memorable and she is, or, she becomes a legend. SHE MAKES HISTORY!

She is fun, has no “attitude,”  she is kind and compassionate – she has a certain “air of divinity.”

She is capable of achieving great success. She understands the meaning and the value of great achievement and its relation to her “purpose” in life and in her connection to the Creator.

She is an icon and a muse. She can relate easily to [my muses as well] Athena, Aphrodite, Nike, Olympias, Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Liz Taylor, Melina Mercuri, Grace Kelly, Beyonce,  Angelina Jolie, latest sirens Blake Lively, and Anna Dello Russo.

She has a superb taste and seeks only the best – because she is worth it!

She LOVES one-of-a-kind designs and she possesses an “expert eye” for craftmanship, quality, rarity and history.

She has a “love affair” with fashion, especially jewelry.

She collects.

My ring [ a 33.19 Karat Asscher-cut white diamond, a gift from  Richard Burton] gives me the strongest feeling of beauty.” 

                                                                          Liz Taylor

We all can relate to the above statement!

I am very much looking forward to the Spring’ 12 Collection: AGE OF GODS – Athena which I will introduce very soon.

With much love and gratitude,                                                                Susanna Galanis

Gossip Girl, “Goddess Inspired” jewelry and … history repeating

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOSSIP GIRL

One of my secret indulgences is Gossip Girl — my favorite TV show at the moment. Although I very rarely watch TV, this is an exception.  I am having so much fun watching the young New York’s Upper Eastsiders  have their adventures in the City  — and in other glamorous parts of the world as well.

For those of you who are not as obsessed as I am about the show, and do not understand what I am talking about, Gossip Girl is an American young adult drama series based on the book of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesen.  Narrated by the omniscient, yet unseen blogger “gossip girl” the series revolves around the lives, romances and notoriety of privileged young college boys and girls on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City.

There is an  “it” girl,  a modern-day queen with a certain “attitude,” several princesses, a beautiful cast, lots of parties, twists, turns, betrayals, backstabbing, manipulations, gossip, hook-ups, break-ups…hook-ups again…break-ups again…and so on… What a modern-day drama for the young set in New York City — glamorous drama! Sometimes I wonder, “why didn’t I have this much fun during my FIT days in New York City? I remember the fashion, I remember dating a few guys from Columbia, but, I don’t remember having that many fun complications. Oh! now it’s slowly coming back…

I remember my “best friend” Domenica backstabbing me and trying to steal my possible future “boyfriend” Dimitri (a Columbia student from Athens), I remember Leo, Dimitri’s friend (a serious financier in London today, and a serious womanizer), who at that time, he was “seriously” dating my friend Anna… and he was pursuing me as well…I remember my friend  Stephan (a British-French banker from Brown University) who was dating a beautiful soap opera actress named Amanda and he was pursuing Carole (my French girlfriend)… who was in a serious relationship with Frank… and yet, she was not…I remember Stephan’s friend Johan (a beautiful Swedish man working at Citibank)… and that I had a serious crush on him…and all this was happening while I was in an “on-again-off-again”  relationship with a very complicated young man named Michael (a computer engineering student living in Brooklyn Heights) whose roommate Nico was… you get the story: the more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s history repeating in New York City.

I get a thrill watching this modern-day drama. I especially get a thrill when they are honoring me by wearing my jewelry as they did in Season 4. The new season 5 premiers on September 26th, and I can’t wait! You must watch!

I love this show!!!

I am leaving you with a quote from the song “History Repeating” with Shirley Basset:

…Life’s for us to enjoy Woman,man, girl and boy Feel the pain Feel the joy and sidestep the little bits of history repeating…
