WATCH THE GREEK
Is the first collection, and gets its inspiration from last December’s events in Greece. The items float between conceptual and formalist influences, between symbols of the revolution, the peplos of Ancient Greece clothing and Molotov Cocktails.
“Late on Saturday
A teenage boy is shot dead by police in Exarchia, a district of central Athens long associated with lawlessness and drug abuse. Two police officers have been charged - one with murder and the other as an accomplice. (...)
Protesters chanting "cops, pigs, murderers" hurl petrol bombs at Athens riot police. Helicopters hover over the demonstrators and clouds of teargas erupt in the streets. Officials report 30 people injured, including police, firefighters and bystanders. Looting is rife. (...)
The Greek Communist party announces a mass rally in central Athens for tonight and the socialist Pasok opposition calls for peaceful mass demonstrations. University professors start a three-day walkout and many school students stay away from class in protest. (...)
Cars and pedestrians return to the streets of Athens as Greeks go back to work, but with a 24-hour general strike scheduled for Wednesday against pension reforms and the government's economic policies, many Greeks fear the demonstrations could last for days."
