Shooting the FMF SS 21 extras collection
A few months after the official launch of FMF, I felt ready to add some new stuff to the essentials collection. And what is more essential than some headwear?
My new jockeys and bucket hats were already in production. We picked colors, tried some branding options, and found the right shapes. Grey for the jockeys, white & beige for the bucket hats.
Oh wait! How about we add these tie-dye fabrics too? Won't they look great in a shirt dress and some Men & Women T-shirts?
Alex (Grymanis) would lead the photo shooting this time. He knows me since my first records in the Peace and Friendship Stadium. When I thrived, and when I fell, he was there, capturing sports achievements, moments with friends and family, even my-not-so-good moments during my rehabilitation time after my injury last year.
For this shooting, the city was calling us. We wanted to go for a walk in Athens city center and shoot some unbiased, real moments. Popi, artist and model, Manos Kyriakousis – a genuine urban guy attached to his skate, and Angeliki -my twin sister (it took sometime to convince her!) would pose for our new items. We were ready to shine with the magic dust from makeup artist & hairdresser Angeliki (Mitsiali).
And it was a blast. We* wondered around Ermou str., Monastiraki & Plaka areas and their color-blocked urban sceneries.
Enjoy our evening ride! I hope you like our essentials extras, we know we do!
Peace out and thank you for the huge support,
*I say “we” because It felt as if I was there. Yet, the truth is that I was flying out to Japan on the same day to fulfill my dream and take part in the Tokyo Olympics 2020. This is where I am right now, writing this text. Ready to do my best and enjoy this magic moment of my life. Wish me luck!
