As a stylist it’s a pleasure discovering new accessories, as they can inject personality and make a statement – this season, SCARVES are back!

For those that love to accessorise it’s easy to make a noticeable fashion statement regardless of your age with a scarf, as there are some interesting styles to whet your appetite – introducing colour or a fabulous print can actually individualize your overall look.

Grecian Chic is the latest must-have accessory from Greece! Elena Zounartzi is no stranger to designing and illustrating as she has an impressive Central Saint Martins and former Hermes background. Now, however, she goes by the name of Accomplished Designer at Grecian Chic. These marvellous handmade silk scarves are certainly unique and Elena draws inspiration from her country’s history, culture and colours converting them into wearable designs.

There are two collections; the “Classical” as its name suggests has as its source the archaeology, history and even the mythology of Greece.  Inspiration is derived the intricate details of ancient marble sculptures to the Minoan pottery, from traditional folklore embroidery to Alexander the Great’s gold jewellery.

The second, the “Grecian Life” represents daily life with a comical twist.  A chic lady travels around the islands and the mountain villages to pose with a cult male figure.

In my opinion the designs are elegant, quirky and colourful, and whilst scarves are the main focus within the collection you can also get your hands on pocket scarves, silk ribbons, scarf rings and even cushions!

To make the most of your scarf, and for those that haven’t a clue about how to tie one you’ll find useful step-by-step guides on the website to demonstrate how to wear them differently, thus meaning you won’t ever get bored. Scarves come luxuriously packaged and would make an ideal gorgeous gift for Christmas.

Some of my personal favourites is the “tsarouhia” and “monemvasia” scarves and these are priced at €160.
