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.

NIKE – The eternal and universal winged goddess of VICTORY! 

In antiquity, the Greek goddess Nike was represented in statues and paintings as a woman with wings, dressed in a billowing robe, and carrying a wreath which was intended to be awarded to the “winner.” Please visit the Louvre Museum in Paris for more details as one of the most famous statues in the world “Nike of Samothrace” is permanently exhibited there in the most magnificent manner – Nike prefers the splendor of Paris! The French, I must say,  are the most gracious hosts! Currently, they are hosting the “In the Kingdom of Alexander the Great – Ancient Macedonia” exibit and I am for ever greatful … as a proud Macedonian myself…

Since I am mentioning Alexander, in this post about Nike and “winners,” there is a very famous quote that I must share with you:                                                                  

                        “To the winner.” This is what Alexander the Great – King of Macedon famously replied when, at his death bed was asked, “To whom was he bequeathing the Macedonian Kingdom?”

Please see my previous posts in this blog for earlier writings, as my fascination with Nike does not seem to go away.

Nike’s message is very simple : She does NOT like loosing. 

She stayed on Mount Olympus, a place in Greek mythology to be between the earth and the heavens, along with Zeus, Athena, Hera, Hades [well, Hades was not staying there as he was the God of the underworld], Poseidon, Ares, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Aphrodite, Demeter and Hestia, back in the AGE OF GODS… Can you imagine the scene? 

The Olympian Gods loved Nike, so did everyone else at the time [and ever since…] There was nothing sweeter for the Ancient Greeks than to taste the sweet fruits of NIKE [Victory], be it in war, in love or in athletics. This is a passion which survives to this day, and the thrill of Victory is one of the best feelings in the world – as a modern Greek, I can attest to that!  You can see why I am obsessing with Nike!

As per goddess Nike [my strongest belief as well] loosing is NOT an option!

Here are two postcards for inspiration:

My new collection of Goddess Inspired Jewelry which I am naming AGE OF GODS – Athina will be available soon. needless to say, a collection inspired by goddess Nike is in the works as well….I will be updating you…

As I mentioned in my previous post, I will be writing more about my new favorite ancient Greek goddess, Nike (Victory). I am working on it… while its snowing outside. I must say, it’s a novelty. Normally, I do not like cold and darkness but, I am enjoying the snow! Who knows? I may start liking winters, and hopefully… not suffer as much. I miss the Summer already. I miss the golden sunshine. I miss the light! I miss the pool on the rooftop of my building and the gossiping with my neighbors about fashion and stuff…

Here is a post card about Nike, history and glamour – some of my favorite words!

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
