Amanzoe Boutique-An eclectic paradise

Nestled among the marble Doric columns of the Amanzoe Resort, overlooking the lush green hills of Kranidi, the boutique of the luxury hotel offers guests the opportunity to browse the collections and creations of Greek fashion designers, jewellery and accessories – an eclectic shopping experience in the discreet, relaxed atmosphere Aman Resorts around the world are renowned for creating.

Char Gray, co-manager of Amanzoe, was instrumental in the creation of the boutique, personally selecting collections and individual pieces. “The design of the boutique integrates beautifully with the architecture of the hotel – the result is stunning! Aman Resorts is proud to be here, offering the “Greek experience” to our guests, so it was of the utmost importance to me that a variety of Greek designers are represented in our boutique. The very talented and enthusiastic team of the boutique takes great pride in artistically showcasing all the merchandise and in introducing these designers and their products. We wanted only Greek pieces so as to introduce our guests to local talents, and give them the chance to acquire an item of clothing, accessory or product, which cannot be purchased elsewhere.” The boutique offers a large variety of items including the collections of fashion designer Miranda Konstandinidou, Paolita swimwear, Zeus + Dione sandals, Thalassa pashminas, Orlebar Brown, a unique collection of men’s swimwear and casual wear, and the jewellery collections by designers Vassilia, Zoe and Venia Mitropanou. In an exclusive partnership with kultia.com, the boutique also features pieces from the jewellery collections of Marianna Petridi, Daphne Petridi, Fotini Psarouli, Elena Syraka, Lito Karakostanoglou, Christina Darra and Mattia Cielo, the international Kultia designer. Greek local products are also on offer, such as olive oils by Moria Elea and Lambda & Epsilon, Ermionis honey, ceramic creations by Alexandra Fountoukli, and candles by Sandrine & Jo from their Dusk to Dawn and Greek Countryside collections. The boutique also offers the chemical free products of the Aman Resort Spa, available exclusively at the hotel. In the pages that follow, five fashion and jewellery designers present their creations at the Amanzoe Boutique, discuss their dreams and explain why the luxury resort is the ideal outlet for the expression of their artistic identity and aesthetics. Elegant, feminine pieces, designed to “remind” one of the nature, spirit and culture of Greece, are included in their Summer 2013 collections.
