The Spice Jumpsuit

Added Aug 16, 2016

by Elpida Kyriakou

Athens, Greece






This jumpsuit tastes paprika, cinnamon and red hot pepper and it’s my favourite garment this summer. I can match it with different accessories, like the belt and the necklace I include here. I’ve made the necklace myself combining colorful shreds and crochet motifs, following my principle to avoid monochrome clothes and expressing my love for ethnic style.

      Hi! I suppose you can try it,as long as the fabric isn’t too thick for the gatherings around the waist.
      Good luck!

    Hello Elpida ! I just love all of your clothing, all of your pieces remind me of my home, Toronto Canada, my parents are from northern Italy on the Slovenia. I love the cultural elements in your pieces. I would love to introduce some of my parents background into my clothing. So beautiful, I can’t wait to savor all of your pieces.

    All of them are so fantastic!

      Hi! I’m always excited to get comments from distant friends! I’ve been sewing for three years and now I can’t live without it…We all carry our culture and it fun to pass ourselves in our clothes….Otherwise we wouldn’t sew…Looking forward to see your new creations!

    Ποτέ πηγές διακοπές, ποτέ τα εραψες όλα αυτά κι εγώ με τις δουλειές είχα κανένα μήνα μπω! Πολύ ωραία όλα όσα έφτιαξες κι αυτό νομίζω είναι το πιο ωραίο απ’ όλα! Τέλεια απόχρωση του κόκκινου και δείχνει πολύ juicy από την κορφή ως τα νύχια! Σου πάνε πολύ τα κατακόκκινα, να τα φοράς πιο συχνά! Ή γυναικαρα με τα κόκκινα όνομα και πράμα! Βάλε το αύριο!!

    Εμένα αντιθέτως μου αρέσουν αρκετά τα μονόχρωμα, όπως θα έχεις ίσως καταλάβει… Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ αυτή η φόρμα. Και αν είμαι σε φόρμα του χρόνου, θέλω να επιχειρήσω και εγώ ένα τέτοιο πατρόν. Όσο για το χρώμα νομίζω αυτό είναι για σένα. Σου πάει πολύ! Και το κρεμαστό στο λαιμό απογειώνει το σύνολο! Συγχαρητήρια Ελπίδα! Είσαι μια κούκλα όπως πάντα!

      Ευχαριστώ πολύ Daniela. Χθες ήμουν στη Θεσσαλονίκη, Είχα 22 χρόνια να πάω! Έκανα μια γρήγορη βόλτα και σκεφτόμουν ότι εσύ θα ήξερες που είναι τα μαγαζιά με τα υφάσματα !!!
      Thanks Daniela. Yesterday evening I was in Thessaloniki. I hadn’t been there for 22 years! I had a quick tour and I was thinkking that you would know where the fabric shops are!!!

      Ευχαριστώ Αϊντα! Ναι, είμαι πολύ χαρούμενη με το κολιέ…Μόλις επέστρεψα από τη Σαμοθράκη. Ήταν πανέμορφα αλλά η ταλαιπωρία δεν περιγράφεται. Θα ανεβάσω φωτογραφίες και θα τα πούμε το συντομότερο.

      Thank you:) It’s really very, very versatile…I can wear it with no accessories and sports shoes or even with heels and evening accessories and get a totally different look. However, I prefer the holiday, ethnic look of the photos….
