Born in Athens, he studied industrial design in Athenian College of Art and Design. The predominant characteristics are clean austere lines and geometrical patterns which are further enhanced by intense coloring and usually combined with dual tomes or trichromes. The high-end handcrafted shoes made from luxury Italian leathers and materials are already celebrated for being comfortable and anatomical.
''My purpose is to explore the intimate relationship women have with their shoes examining the psychological and erotic significance of these objects’’
Inside each shoebox there is a story, written by the designer himself. Everything is written from the designer’s point-of-view as a man who doesn’t think that being in touch with our desire and ability to talk about it is negative. This is a celebration of the desire of human psyche, which is seeking what is missing.
