COLLABORATION OF THE YEAR
With its iconic simplicity, the Cycladic civilization lies as the common bond in the
Wanderlista x Parthenis 2017 Mykonos Summer Capsule Collection
The collection’s palette relates to the island’s transition: black and white mirror night and day, while dusty pink with a subtle hint of metallic evokes the early morning sky, the time when some rise and some retire, while the blue serves as the backdrop to the Aegean, whether it be the the sea or the sky. Vintage snake print from the Parthenis archives are prominent, giving way to a modernity that lies in shape and functionality.
