"Take a Chance on Greece"

Hello friends,
When I saw these photos by Greek  photographer Yiorgos Kaplanidis this morning on Facebook, I knew I had to share them with you.
I then read on my feed the lovely post by decorator, author and chic blogger extraordinaire Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic , and I am sharing it here with you.

"Of all peoples, the Greeks have dreamt the dream of life best." - Goethe
For her third season of Chance, founder and creative director Julia Leach not only dreamed of Greece but traveled there to capture the spirit of the collection on location.  She worked with local photographer Yiorgos Kaplasnidis and a local model  in these stunning images shot on the island of Paros. Greece was the perfect backdrop to not only her signature stripes but new caftans and tunics debuting this May.  The Chance ethos is described as "classics that travel the world" and if you can't get away, you can feel like you have thanks to Julia. 

It feels so good when people get to know and appreciate my country. 
It feels good to know that this little spot on the map gets back some of the love and light it is so generously spreading out into the world.

What a wonderful place!

With Thanks to the fab Heather of Habitually Chic  for the inspirational title and text.

love, Irene
